Back to Blacks
World champion Black Ferns will play a rare double-header with the All Blacks against England at London’s Twickenham on November 21 – something Black Ferns coach Brian Evans believed would inspire his players. “Twickenham has such great rugby history so it will be fantastic for the Ferns. Also getting the opportunity to play after the All Blacks versus England test is a great honour,” Evans said. The England women’s rugby team are the chief rivals of the Black Ferns, having played them in the last two women’s World Cup finals – in 2002 and 2006. The Black Ferns won both those finals. The Black Ferns are playing two Tests against England and one international against England A as part of their build-up to the 2010 World Cup.
