What attracted to you working for RLWC2021?
For me, it’s very important to work somewhere that shares my personal values and RLWC2021 fits perfectly within that. As a woman, inclusion and equality are of fundamental importance to me and I’m thrilled to be working on delivering the most inclusive rugby league event ever.
What is your favourite sporting memory?
The Women’s Cricket World Cup Final in 2017! The tournament itself was fascinating to follow and the sheer scale of it placed women's cricket into the national and international spotlight; something that had never been done before.
It was truly impressive to be at a sell-out game for Women’s Cricket at Lord’s, and to see it filled with so many women, children and people of so many races and nationalities. The symbolism of tournament and specifically the final was huge, giving plenty of people an appetite to contribute to the growth of women’s sport in all areas.
And of course, the atmosphere after England won was unforgettable!
