For Maddie Studdon, hers has been a rugby league journey which began as a four-year-old, before progressing to the highest levels of the women’s game.

Throughout it all, there has been highs, lows, bumps in the road, before ultimate success, with Studdon becoming one of the first women to sign a professional rugby league contract at the Sharks in 2016.

The captain of the Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership Sharks in the recent Grand Final, the team coming ever-so-close to claiming the title, Studdon has represented NSW, played for the Jillaroos and been one of the pioneers for the women’s game as it continues to go from strength to strength as it moves into a semi-professional era.

In recognising the NRL’s Women in League Round, courtesy of Aramex, Sharks media profiles one of the standard bearers, catching up with Studdon in her workplace, away from game day or the training paddock, as she details her journey, as well as her hopes and ambitions for women’s rugby league into the future.
