Team playing for: FAHS Girls XV

Representative teams: I have played in the Manawatu Girls Rep team for three years. I also play club rugby for the FOBO club in Feilding

National teams:

Favourite position: I like to play flanker as you get right in amongst the action. I also play in the back line which is fun as you get to make try saving tackles and are able to use ball in hand well.

When and why you started playing rugby: I started playing rugby when I was 12. I was in my last year at primary school and thought I'd give rugby a go because it meant I was able to try and smash the boys and to show boys that girls actually can play rugby.

Most memorable rugby moment: Hmmm ... winning the Secondary Schools Hurricanes for the third consecutive year, and also winning the Hurricanes title for Manawatu Reps

Your rugby icon: Any great rugby star as they all have so much talent and we are able to learn alot

Most respected opponent:

What you still want to achieve with rugby: I want to continue to play rugby for as long as i can and maybe make a high representative team.

Other Info: Thanks to Rugby Girl for everything they have done for Girls Rugby.
