Bio

Priest, the Renegades' wicketkeeper, will bring a wealth of international experience to the squad having played 112 matches for New Zealand since 2007.

She is also a dynamic batter, having become the first woman to hit a T20 domestic hundred when she struck 106* from 74 balls against Otago in 2012-13.

Rachel is one of ten contracted women in New Zealand and was one of the best domestic performers of last season.

She was the second highest run scorer for her side, Wellington, in the tournament as they won the title with Priest scoring an unbeaten 39 in the Final.

When Rachel isn’t playing cricket, basketball, turbo touch, or working in her role as a sports centre Bookings Coordinator, she is coaching cricket, and has contemplated heading to university to study history and become a teacher.
