The New Zealand women's national rugby sevens team is New Zealand's representative team in rugby sevens for women. They are the reigning women's Rugby World Cup Sevens champions, having won the most recent edition in 2013,[2] and also have been a "core team" that participates in all rounds of the IRB Women's Sevens World Series since that competition's inception in 2012–13.[3][4]

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.
