Dairy farmer eyes NRLW Premiership glory


//

The start of the NRLW Premiership is just over two weeks away, and one of the stars of the women's game that is ready to make waves is Dragons second-rower, Kezie Apps.

Apps grew up on a dairy farm in Bega on the far south coast of NSW. Like many in the NRLW she began playing with the boys in her local team, the Bega Roosters.

"I signed up when I was eight years old. I remember rocking up to my first training session and I got a few different looks from the boys because I guess I was a girl and I was a lot taller than a lot of them as well, so I think they might have been a little intimidated," Apps said.

Her passion was kickstarted being the only girl of her siblings.

"I first picked up a rugby league ball at my house ," she said. "It would have been in the backyard with my two brothers and my dad just playing footy ."

From those humble beginnings, the rise of women's sport has seen women like her now able to do what they love in the NRLW.

"I never thought I'd be playing for the Dragons. I never thought I'd be playing in the NRL," Apps said.

"In my first game playing for the Dragons, I was so nervous. I didn't think I'd ever come this far in rugby league for women ."
