Ahead of the nib Newcastle Knights introduction to the NRL Telstra Women's Premiership, we sat down with the squad members who are creating history in the red and blue.
In the first of our player profiles, we caught up with local talent, Bobbi Law, ahead of the rescheduled 2021 season to get to know her a little better.
From having only started playing rugby league back in 2019 to representing the Indigenous All Stars and earning an NRLW contract, Law was one of the first players signed to her hometown Club.
Name: Bobbi Law.
Position/s: Centre and five-eight.
Junior Club: Only started playing in 2019, so the first Club I played for was CRL Newcastle.
You're journey in the game, where have you played before?
My journey started in 2019 for CRL Newcastle and was selected in the NRLW Sydney Roosters and Prime Ministers XIII sides that same year. In 2020, I was selected for the Indigenous All Stars team and was selected again for the Roosters, but unfortunately, I did my ACL that year.
How excited are you to be a part of the first-ever NRLW side for the Newcastle Knights?
Very excited! To be selected for the Club your family has always supported is something special. But also being a role model for other young girls in the Hunter, and hopefully inspiring them to play or try rugby league is pretty amazing.
What is your hopes and expectations for the season ahead?
To come together as a team and build a strong culture. Be the team that everyone wants to play for and play some good footy.
Law Abiding Citizen.
