Get to know: Tamsin Barber

With 18 days to go for the 2022 NRLW season, we caught up with our squad members to get to know them a little better. 

We sat down with ex-rugby union player and winger Tamsin Barber to discuss her journey from the UK into rugby league and her love for a good Christmas film. 

From Epsom, England, Barber grew up playing rugby 7's at school before joining the Bath Rugby Ladies in October 2015.

In 2017, Tamsin played for Richmond Rugby Union before moving to Sydney to play first grade for Easts Rugby Club in 2020.

The outside-back is ready to make her mark on the NRLW competition.
