What’s your warm up song?

What are you watching on TV / streaming right now?

Peep show

Vegemite: do you keep in the fridge or pantry? Please explain

Favourite other sport?


Do you have any tattoos? Tell us about them.

I have four tattoos. My first one I got with my mum and sister, we all have a small ladybird on our ankles for good luck as my mum and her sister always wore them on necklaces growing up.

I have a sun on my ribs in memory of my friend Georgia Ray Hunter- she was our ray of sunshine.

I have the Olympic Rings on my wrist, and I have my playing number and my best friend Georgie Parker's playing number because we got it together after winning Comm games and going on a holiday in Spain. 

To play me in a movie of my life I’d want …

Jennifer Lawrence because she seems a bit clumsy and so am I!

Who was your role model growing up?

Cathy Freeman and captain of the Hockeyroos Katrina Powell

Where do you see yourself in 10 years’ time?

Going to my 5th Comm games at the age of 34! Or if I am finished with hockey. Hopefully a feature writer or sports journalist.

Who are the Hockeyroos on the road to Rio?
Next week, the Hockeyroos depart for New Zealand and the Hawke's Bay Cup. Up against six of the teams they're due to meet in Rio, it's a serious pre Olympics test. We profile some of the players en route to New Zealand for Rio.
