NRL start another feather in Breayley's cap

BRITTANY Breayley never thought she would be pulling on a Brisbane Broncos jersey.

The Brothers Ipswich captain's rugby league journey began at Mackay State High School, when the then 17-year-old noticed a flier on the physical education staff noticeboard.

A decade on, and Breayley is a World Cup winner and two-time Queensland Rugby League Women's representative player of the year.

And now an NRL player.

"Back then I only ever dreamed of playing for Queensland, so to then play for Australia was a huge honour, "Breayley said. "Now the opportunity to pull on an NRL jersey is quite exciting."

The 27-year-old said she took pride in every jersey she played for, and the Broncos' maroon and gold would be no different.

"Australia and Queensland are huge honours. (Brothers) for me is very important, because grassroots footy is where we started," she said.

"Now this opportunity to pull on an NRL jersey, I'm not sure of the feeling I'll get, but it's an exciting time and something I'll cherish.

"I can't wait to get on the field and train with the girls."
