How did you find Rugby League?

I was late to the game so I didn't start playing until I was 22 years old. I moved to Canberra with my partner who was playing for the raiders. I wanted to make friends in a new community and the best way to do that was through sport.

I played for the Sydney Roosters for two seasons and the NSW Blues team for three years.

Newcastle, NSW.

What are you most looking forward to this season?

The challenge of playing in a new team with a good culture. I'm really looking forward to getting out there in the new colours. 

What are your goals for the 2022 season?

Winning in my hometown would be really special.

Hot chips (they're still my favourite food) with chicken salt.

Grease or High School Musical.

Winning the 2021 Premiership with the Roosters girls.

Best Piece of Advice?

"Win every moment, every little moment."

Greatest off-field moment?

Finishing my university degree [Bachelor of Secondary Education and Bachelor of Physical Health Education] and being a Teacher is really rewarding. I love my job.
