Ali Brigginshaw - Australian Rugby League Player - Jillaroos


Ali Brigginshaw is captain of the Brisbane Broncos NRLW Premiership team and a Queensland and Australian international rugby league player. Ali played League as a junior before playing Touch Football when she turned 12 as girls were not permitted to play rugby league, going on to represent Queensland and Australia.

 At 18 Ali started playing league again for the Souths Logan Magpies. In 2015 she broke her leg and took up Muay Thai and boxing as a way to get her fitness and strength back and went on to become champion in the Australian Golden Gloves Novice A category.

Ali has recently led her Broncos team to an historic NRL Women's Premiership title win and has been named captain of the Jillaroos for the Auckland Test against New Zealand in October this year.

A true leader on and off the field, Ali is also an Ambassador of the Beyond the Broncos program which aims to improve school attendance rates and year 12 attainment rates for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander students throughout Queensland and northern New South Wales. Ali travels to high schools with some ex-Broncos NRL players to deliver workshops and inspire students achieve their goals.

Katrin Garfoot, gold medalist in the Women’s Individual Time Trial (Road) at the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in 2018, has been an elite member of the Australian Women’s Cycling Team and has represented Australia at a number of World Championship and international events.

Katrin’s professional bio and achievements are incredibly impressive given that she only took up cycling as a recreational mountain biker in 2008. Before taking up competitive cycling for the first time in late 2011, Katrin had completed three university degrees in three different countries, including her post graduate diploma in secondary education. After two successful seasons of racing in Australia, Katrin represented Australia in World Championships, Commonwealth Games and the Rio Olympic Games. By her fourth year as a professional cyclist, Katrin had achieved two Bronze and one Silver Medal at World Championships. Katrin was crowned Australian Female Road Cyclist of the Year for three years in a row: 2015, 2016 and 2017.

In May 2018, Katrin announced her retirement from competitive cycling and is committed to making a contribution to Sport and H/PE outcomes in a meaningful way post competition.
