Broncos star Kimiora Nati

Karyn Murphy Medal winner Kimiora Nati is among seven members of the Broncos team which claimed the inaugural Holden NRL Women's Premiership chosen for the Kiwi Ferns in the October 13 Test against the Jillaroos at Mt Smart Stadium.

Nati was awarded the player of the grand final after scoring a hat-trick in Brisbane's 34-12 triumph over Sydney Roosters at ANZ Stadium on Sunday.

All members in the 19-strong squad announced by Kiwi Ferns coach Kelvin Wright played for the four clubs in the NRLW competition, with the Warriors having the biggest representation of nine players.

However, Nati was joined by six Broncos team-mates in second-rowers Teuila Fotu-Moala and Maitua Feterika, props Lilieta Maumau and Ngatokotoru Arakua, winger Karley Te Kawa, and utility Lavinia Gould, who will be making her debut.

Match Highlights: Broncos v Roosters -NRLW Grand Final - 2018

McGregor will be joined in the Kiwi Ferns by St George Illawara team-mate Honey Hireme, who played her first Test in 2002, and will be seeking to repeat her feat as leading try scorer at last year's World Cup.
