Ready to make her mark with the Crows

SOUTH Burnett's Traevonnah Fisher is no stranger to coming up against Queensland's best rugby league players.

Come July she will compete at the state championships for the under-16 Central Crows for the third consecutive year.

"I am keen to play at the state championships,” she said.

"It is going to be different this year, there were bigger girls last year, and there are probably going to be bigger girls again.”

It is her second year in the U16 side and she is looking forward to being able to control the ball in her favourite position, five-eighth.

"Rugby league is something that I love to do,” she said.

"I like meeting new people and getting out there and experiencing from a different coaches point of view.”

Traevonnah plays for the South Burnett under-17 girls team in the Tooowoomba Rugby League from week to week and likes to bases her style off play off NRL stars such as Kalyn Ponga.

She too would like to play at that level one day with aspirations to take her rugby league further with the Brisbane Broncos.

She is one of two Wide Bay Bull players selected in the U16 side with Skye Girrard from Hervey Bay also in the team.

Traevonnah said she was grateful for the support of her family and friends.

"My aunty is really supportive of me, and her boyfriend, so they have been there supporting me from day one,” she said.

The state championships will be played on the Sunshine Coast from Thursday, July 4 - Sunday, July 7.
