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 breakout star from the Queensland Rugby League Women's Premiership, Tahlulah Tillett, to get to know her a little better.
Having represented Australia in touch football and travelled down to Newcastle alongside a bunch of her North Queensland Gold Stars teammates, 'Tilly' is ready to take the NRLW by storm.
