Former Ferns gathered before the recent international between New Zealand and DPR Korea at Bill McKinlay Park, Auckland, at a get together organised by Friends of Football.

The match marked the 100th international played by Ria Percival who was presented with a jacket to mark the achievement by former Fern Michele Cox.

Percival became only the second New Zealander to notch up a century of full international appearances after her skipper Abby Erceg reached the same milestone last year.

  1. Hi there. I love the photo of the former Ferns and wonder if you can assist by putting me in touch with Barbara, Michelle or Tara Cox. I am collaborating with a colleague on a book about the 1979 Australia v NZ series in Australia. The two games marked the first official full internationals between the two countries. Sadly, I know that Rox Cox has passed away but we would like to interview as many team staff and players as possible for our book.
