Get to know: Caitlan Johnston

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.

We caught up with another prodigous local talent in Caitlan Johnston to get to know her a little better.

An Indigenous All Star and Prime Minister's XIII representative, Johnston was named as the Club's first NRLW signing and has also been part of the Jillaroos camp.

We just want to set the standards for the girls coming through the pathways and to lead from the front as an experienced player.
