20-year old Tamaki is the younger sister of All Blacks Sevens squad member Isaac Te Tamaki. One of three new caps this year, the former Hamilton Girls High School rugby captain first appeared in the back jersey during the Atlanta Sevens in April and quickly showed her tremendous leg speed and mind for the game.
She says she can't live without chocolate, but that shouldn't stop her from achieving success as hooker for the New Zealand Sevens team at Rio.
