Anna Richards

Likely the most accomplished women’s player in the history of the game, New Zealander Anna is the new coach of the women’s sevens programme at the Hong Kong Sports Institute. After making her New Zealand Black Ferns debut in 1990, the fly-half enjoyed an almost unbroken run of international victories. She has played in four Women’s Rugby World Cup-winning sides and was never defeated in the New Zealand National Provincial Competition. She also played representative tennis and netball prior to taking up rugby – and has a law degree and a BA to boot.
