Blue-blooded Boyle happy to be a Queensland Red

Boyle still dabbles in rugby league too, but the Wallaroos forward has cemented herself as one of the best young talents in the 15-player code, blitzing it since her return from rotator cuff surgery that saw her miss the 2018 season.

Proud brother Morgan will head to the game and Millie joked on Thursday she hoped the NSW Origin hopeful would be wearing his maroon Sea Eagles jersey in support.

“Growing up in NSW, it’s obviously hard but I am just really enjoying rugby at the moment with this group of girls,” the 20-year-old said.

“We’re all pretty calm, pretty collected, but ready to take NSW on this weekend.”

More than 50,000 fans watched Adelaide win the AFLW title last weekend and Boyle said the stage was set for rugby to make its mark again after last year’s decider.

“It shows how much women’s sport is growing and rugby’s right there as well,” she said.

“We just want to put our best foot forward for rugby and hopefully we are doing that.”

The same Queensland line-up beat the Brumbies in a play-off last weekend to qualify for another crack at the title.

“Discipline is the number one priority this weekend. If we keep the ball, keep our cool and not be too eager … it’s on us,” Boyle said.
