World champion Black Ferns paid to train for first time
For the first time ever this weekend, the champion Black Ferns have been paid to train. Following their fifth World Cup triumph last year, the Ferns were officially put on the New Zealand Rugby payroll three months ago. The newly contracted Black Ferns squad and wider training groups are about to head into the third and final day of their camp on the North Shore. Head coach of the Black Ferns is Glenn Moore says it's great the players are being recompensed for their work.
