Renee Wickcliffe

30th May 1987 1.64m/63kg Right Wing

Experienced and quick-stepping winger Renee Wickliffe has shown her class and finishing ability for both the Black Ferns and Black Ferns Sevens since 2009, not to mention with Auckland and Counties Manukau (out of the Manurewa club) in that time.

Wickliffe joined a resurgent Counties Manukau in the Women’s Provincial Championship in 2013 but was previously a key part of the Auckland Storm.

She made her Black Ferns debut in 2009 against England and featured in the Black Ferns’ World Cup defence in 2010.

Wickliffe is also a Women’s Rugby World Cup Sevens winner with the Black Ferns Sevens side, for which she debuted in 2009.

The versatile back has two Women’s Rugby World Cup victories to savour, in 2010 and 2017, and follows in a long and illustrious line of potent Black Ferns finishers.

In 2016 she won the Farah Palmer Cup with the Counties Manukau Heat. Her 10 tries for the Heat in 2015 is a record for that union, and her four tries for the Heat against Otago that season has not been bettered in a match.

Wickliffe can also play at fullback or five-eighth. She was a New Zealand touch rep in 2010.

She heads into the 2019 season with 35 test caps and 85 points.
