Hohepa took part at the 2010 World Cup, but missed the 2014 edition after giving birth, stating that the difference between the 2010 and 2017 campaign's couldn't be more different.

"We've got so many resources thrown at us this time around," Hohepa told Te Karere.

"Our management have been given every opportunity to make sure we're in the best shape possible."

The Black Ferns depart for Ireland later today, with their first match coming against Wales on August 10.
