Black Ferns halfback Kendra Cocksedge is arguably New Zealand's best female rugby player - and one of our best, male or female.

She has been part of two World Cup-winning sides and, in 2018, she was awarded the Kelvin R Tremain Memorial Player of the Year Award - the first woman to take this honour.

This year, Cocksedge, 33, became a Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit in New Year's Honours.

As one of the country's top sportswomen, she's well placed to discuss the big challenges facing women's sport - professionalism, mental health, media coverage... and food.

Cocksedge joins Newshub reporters Narelle Sindos, Nicky Styris, Lucy Thomson and Natasha Payne on a special all-female Big Wraps panel.
