Fast five with Kody House

Kody House may be a familiar face to footy fans with her representative history, but there's still plenty to find out about the Brothers Ipswich gun.

The competition has been called off for this year, so players are all looking to next season and preparing themselves for when they can next play.

Some of the players who will feature in the next BHP Premiership season have taken part in 'fast five' questions challenge to help fans get to know them better.

Fast five with Kody House

Football family – does anyone else in your family play? Who and with which team?

My dad played for a very long time before he passed away 10 years ago. I actually started playing football after he passed away, so he never got to see me follow in his footsteps. He played football for Central Queensland Capras in what is now known as the Intrust Super Cup. He also played back in the 1980s in the Brisbane Premiership for Brisbane Valleys as a second rower / lock. He also played locally in the Gladstone Rugby League competition as well.

Favourite footy memory?

Playing for the Australian Jillaroos for the first time at the Auckland 9s in 2017. I scored on my debut and it was my first real taste at representative football and travelling internationally. I was so proud to be able to represent my country and it is one of my proudest moments in my life. Mal Meninga also presented us with our jerseys.

Fashion – what’s the most worn item in your wardrobe?

I have a most-worn outfit. I can’t go past my white Converse, comfy tee, black fedora and a maxi skirt! Ultimate comfort level in this Brisbane weather.

Fitness tips – any favourite exercises or tips for staying motivated?

Consistency, hard work and effort is key. Getting myself into a routine helps me keep on top of my fitness and stay motivated. Normally, I go to a gym that has a great community and I love going there every day to catch up with my friends and push ourselves hard to be the best that we can be. But not being able to go to the gym for the time being means I have to get creative. Having a workout buddy (especially in this isolation) can help keep you focused and motivated. I’m lucky to have a supportive partner who trains with me and motivates me to always be better. It makes training fun, yet still competitive.

Find out more – is there anything you are studying up on, reading, watching now that you are spending more time at home?

At the moment, I am keeping busy by...

Reading: Outlander - I’ve watched all the TV series and am now onto the second book of the series.

Watching: Tiger King - if  you haven’t watched this on Netflix yet, do yourself a favour and do it!

Studying: my university degree. I’m currently in my third year of a four-year clinical exercise physiology degree. It’s keeping me super busy in these crazy times as I still have to watch lectures and complete practicals online, whilst still trying to get assignments done. Currently, I’m working on an assignment to do with rugby sevens sports nutrition – the topic is super relevant for rugby league and I’m absolutely loving it.
