Auckland Vulcans coach Dion Briggs has named his team for Saturday morning's National Women's Championship Grand Final against Upper Central at Trusts Stadium.

All three of the squad's capped New Zealand internationals - Tanika-Jazz Noble-Bell, Shontelle Woodman and Lilieta Maumau-Pinomi - are slated to start, while newly-selected Kiwi Ferns train-on squad member Shannon Muru headlines a talented backline.

Teenage playmaker Jayden Rogers gets the nod for a bench spot, with Otahuhu's Jhana Magele to start at hooker.

It's an all Richmond affair in the halves with Kaylarnee Meleisea-Murray lining up alongside Woodman.

Five different Auckland Rugby League clubs from both the Farrelly Photos Women's Premiership and Championship competitions are represented in the grand final squad.
