35. ALI BRIGGINSHAW – The Puma Fearless Series
Jillaroos and Brisbane Broncos captain Ali Brigginshaw wants the women’s game to become professional.
Growing up as the only girl in the boys’ team, Ali was told she had no future in the sport so she never imagined she could turn rugby league into a career.
Ali joins Sam Squiers to discuss fighting for the growth of the women’s game, why it’s important for young boys to look up to female athletes and how a photo of her kissing her girlfriend on the sidelines ended up in the paper.
