The New Zealand women's national rugby sevens team is the reigning women's Rugby World Cup Sevens champions, having won the most recent edition in 2018,[1] and also have been a "core team" that participates in all rounds of the World Rugby Women's Sevens Series since that competition's inception in 2012–13.[2][3]

Honours[edit]

New Zealand did not have any official sevens team for women so they were unofficially represented by the New Zealand Wild Ducks and the Aotearoa Maori New Zealand teams during the years they were playing.
