Azalleyah Maaka is the only player from a Heartland Union to be represented in the Under 10 sevens team, hailing from Gisborne. The Poverty Bay sevens representative plays both wing and prop in sevens and looks up to her father, former East Coast midfielder Tojo Maaka and former Black Fern Trish Hina as her idols.
"Azalleyah is a fast learner and works hard to be the best she can be. Her footwork, power and speed make her an asset in defence and attack and on either side of the field."
