Silver Ferns star in block-buster movie

Every Friday of lockdown, LockerRoom shares posts from Kiwi sportswomen who've caught our eye with novel ways of keeping on top of their game.

This week, a re-enactment of New Zealand's top sports performance of 2019 - in plastic; future Football Ferns fancy footwork; and rowers are issued a special ANZAC Day challenge. 

Netball

The time and dedication to detail needed by the Silver Ferns to lift the 2019 Netball World Cup was unimaginable for some. But it’s the same level of commitment shown by the team’s official photographer, Michael Bradley, to recreate the historic event…with LEGO. 

Football

The future's looking bright for New Zealand football. The U17 women’s team are kicking along nicely off the pitch with a variety of clever trick shots. Watch out for these talented young athletes.

Basketball

New Zealand basketball sensation Charlisse Leger Walker is #stillballin in isolation. The youngest player to debut for the Tall Ferns, at just 16, is challenging others to keep active and share their best swish shot online. She's just announced she will be joining her elder sister, Tall Fern Krystal, at Washington State University on a basketball scholarship.

Rugby

Jazz Hotham is known for dazzling her opponents on the rugby field. But isolation has her dancing to a new beat. Watch the youngest member of the Black Ferns sevens team shake and bake her way around the kitchen. 

Sevens

Portia Woodman is coming back from her achilles injury and letting her feet do the talking. Learn how to side-step in lockdown like the 2017 World Rugby Women’s Player of the Year, via Sky Sport’s Isolation Nation.

Boxing

Former Silver Ferns Courtney Tairi and Kayla Johnson (nee Cullen) joined forces with some big names in boxer Joseph Parker’s re-enactment of the Rocky Horror Picture Show - packing a punch alongside heavyweight world champion boxer Tyson Fury.

Rowing 

Here's a great way to be oarsome. Get rowing indoors for ANZAC Day. Rowing New Zealand and Rowing Australia have joined forces to honour the brave, inviting rowers to get on their ergs from dawn till dusk on Saturday.  

Boxing

Trying to make light of an ugly situation, Commonwealth Games bronze medallist Alexis Pritchard lends a helping hand with her make-up tutorial during the last week of Level 4 lockdown.
