Honoured to wear Maroon
Women’s Representative Player of the Year – Brittany Breayley
The Women’s Interstate clash this year was another tough close game and unfortunately for Queensland, their undefeated streak of holding the Nellie Doherty Cup came to end.
With only four points separating the two states, it was another bruising encounter in which a tenacious Brittany Breayley was voted by her peers as Queensland’s player’s player.
At the recent QRL Awards night, Breayley was also announced as the QRL’s Women’s Representative Player of the Year.
“I was so grateful that the Queensland Women’s team was invited to take part in such a special occasion and I was very surprised to receive such a huge award,” Breayley said.
Even after her third year in the Maroon jersey, Breayley cherishes every moment she gets to run out on the field representing her state.
“I know my position is not a given in this squad, so I always play each game like it’s my last.
“I never expected to be rewarded like this for my on-field efforts.”
