Team NZ Squad Announced!

The 2014 Blood & Thunder Roller Derby World Cup is coming up quickly, with only 7 weeks left until competition time! For the past nine months 30 of the top roller derby skaters from around NZ have been working hard in the Team NZ Training Squad in preparation for the Cup. They’ve been participating in monthly team trainings around the country, fundraising for the trip to Dallas, Texas, and cross training every moment they could spare in their busy lives. Last week the final squad of twenty who will be traveling to Dallas were announced. We’re stoked to say the final squad hosts four Pirates – Terror Satana (who will also be captaining the team!), Lady Trample, Jordan Leah Parore (commonly known as Skate the Muss), and Coup D’eTalia all made the cut!

Congratulations to all the squad members, safe travels and best of luck at the World Cup! We will all be cheering you on!

Sur5al Worlds is Complete!

Another Sur5al down and the Pirates had a great showing! Team Argentina, with TutanKarnage, Machete Confetti, Sugar Hit, Lady Trample, and Coup D’eTalia, took out the tournament for the second time this year! Terror Satana, playing for Team Wales, took out Best Blocker, and her team placed third overall. Our referee Zephyr, playing with Team England who came second, was also awarded Best Jammer. Best dressed skaters Myrtle Kombat and Rick O’Shay were also formidable and an asset to their side, Team South Africa. And of course our ever smiling Head NSO Purple Parfait as well as our cool, calm and collected referee Dovenwolf helped to officiate the fast paced day. Congratulations to everyone, and thank you Whenua Fatales Roller Derby League for another fantastic event.sur5al
