A number of Kiwi wāhine are set to take the field in the upcoming 2024 NRL Telstra Women’s Premiership. New signings, re-signings and club movements have taken place over the off-season, see who your favourite team has locked in for the season so far.


Brisbane Broncos

The 2023 semi-finalist Broncos welcome back a number of Kiwi Wāhine for the 2024 season including breakout powerhouse Mele Hufanga, alongside Gayle Broughton, Annetta-Claudia Nu’uausala, Jasmine Fogavini, and Tafito Lafaele.

Lafaele is a dual-code athlete joining the Auckland Blues women for the 2024 Super Rugby Aupiki competition, before she returns to Brisbane for the NRLW season later this year.


Cronulla Sharks

Dally M Rookie of the Year Annessa Biddle and fellow Kiwi Fern Brooke Anderson have re-signed with the Cronulla Sharks for the 2024 and 2025 seasons.

The Sharks have also landed Black Ferns forward Pia Tapsell for the 2024 and 2025 seasons.

The 25-year-old joins the Cronulla club as the latest cross-code convert after six Test appearances for the Black Ferns in 2019.

Returning to action this year after suffering an ACL injury, Tapsell will play for the Perth-based Western Force in the Super W during the first part of this year before switching codes ahead of the NRLW season kick off in July.

“Pia is the utmost professional, having been a full-time athlete for five years,” Sharks coach Tony Herman said.

“We think she’s a great addition to our squad and we’re excited to see what she’ll bring.”


Newcastle Knights

The two-time premiers will look to make it a three-peat in 2024 with a number of Kiwis bolstering their squad. Shanice Parker, Abigail Roache, Laishon Albert-Jones, and Nita Maynard are all set to lace up for the Knights again this season.


Gold Coast Titans

Kiwi Ferns captain and 2023 IRL Golden Boot winner Georgia Hale returns to the Titans for 2024. She will be joined by Hailee-Jay Ormond-Maunsell and dual-coder Niall Williams. Williams will feature for the Auckland Blues women in the 2024 Super Rugby Aupiki competition, before she returns to the Gold Coast for the NRLW season later this year.


Sydney Roosters

A number of Kiwi forwards return to the Roosters squad for 2024, with the formidable Amber Hall looking to make a comeback after an early injury ruled her out of the 2023 season.

She will be joined by fellow props Mya Hill-Moana and rugby union convert Tiana Davison, with Otesa Pule in the second row.


St George Illawarra Dragons

Dragons and Kiwi Ferns captain Raecene McGregor re-joins the club for 2024 & 2025, alongside recent Kiwi Fern debutante Angelina Teakaaranga-Katoa.

Young up-and-comer Alexis Tauaneai has signed on until 2026, with her younger sister Trinity Tauaneai also signed with the club as a development player.


Wests Tigers

Kiwi Ferns duo Leianne Tufuga and Najvada George return to the Western Sydney side for 2024, following impressive campaigns in the 2023 Pacific Championships.


Canberra Raiders

Following their impressive maiden season in 2023, the Canberra side has yet to fill majority of their squad for the 2024 season.

So far Canberra has re-signed veteran Kiwi Ferns Apii Nicholls and Madison Bartlett, alongside centre Mackenzie Wiki daughter of Hall of Famer Ruben Wiki.


North Queensland Cowboys

Former Fern and Māori All Stars forward Harata Butler has signed with the Cowboys for the 2024 and 2025 NRL Telstra Women’s Premiership seasons.

Butler appeared eight times for the Sharks in her maiden NRLW campaign last year averaging 63 metres in the front row.

Butler is joined by Māori All Stars teammate Tiana Raftstrand-Smith.
