'Lori' has provided one of the best stories in the inaugural NRL women's premiership. She had represented the Kiwi Ferns from 1994-2005 and been named the New Zealand Rugby League women's player of the year in 2004 as well as winning a long list of awards with the Richmond Roses.
With her playing days seemingly over, the introduction of the women's competition inspired the 41-year-old to make an all-out tilt to earn a contract with the first Warriors team and join son Isaiah (19) in becoming the first mother and son to represent the same club at the same time at elite level. She more than succeeded. Mother and son played on the same ground for the club twice - first when the Warriors had a trial against Auckland ahead of the NRL team's match against Penrith in the Women in League Round and then again when the women made their NRLW debut against the Roosters before the Vodafone Warriors' NRL finals clash against the Panthers in Sydney. On that day Lorina and Isaiah were on the bench for their teams, both in jersey #15.
Born in Hamilton, Lorina moved to Newcastle with her family where they lived for several years before returning to New Zealand when she was in her teens. She talks about 1998 being an amazing year in her life. She was 21 when she fell pregnant, got engaged, married and gave birth to Isaiah all in the same year. She has also played tag for New Zealand and represented Mausina Samoa at the rugby union women's World Cup in 2002 and 2006.
A fitness fanatic, Lorina owns a crossfit gym and is an office supervisor for Worth & Douglas, a jewellers and watchmakers provider.
