Welcome to the first edition of Sports A-Gender, a weekly sports news show – made by Sky Sport News in partnership with LockerRoom – focusing on New Zealand sportswomen making headlines this week.

Each Friday, Sky Sport News presenters Kate King and Ravinder Hunia will discuss sporting highlights from the week, and who will make their mark on the weekend ahead. 

This week, they look at the enigma that is Maria Folau, whether women will join the cross-code double-header at Eden Park, and this weekend’s Olympic weightlifting national championships – where over half of the competitors are women. 

Suzanne McFadden, the 2021 Voyager Media Awards Sports Journalist of the Year, founded LockerRoom, dedicated to women's sport.
