The 21 year old has just been chosen in the squad for the first ever Country Rugby League Ladies Tackle Championships.
“26 girls have been picked for the squad and there’s 17 jerseys,” Taylah told News Of The Area.
“So whoever turns up to training and shows they’re determined, will be the ones who walk on the field on the day.”
Taylah has called Tea Gardens home for the past 13 years having moved here with her family from Kurri Kurri.
“I’ve been playing footie tag for three years with the Lady Hawks,” Taylah said.
“I’d only ever done the 9’s tackle comp for six weeks, so I couldn’t believe it when I tried out for the Country Squad and made it.”
At the recent Lady Hawks Presentation Night, Taylah picked up a trio of awards, ‘Best in attack’, Coaches award’ and ‘Players player’.
“The Club is so community minded and friendly, I wouldn’t have made it into the footie squad without these girls and the Hawks Club.”
