Emma Tonegato OAM

BIO:

Originally from Wollongong, NSW, Emma grew up playing every sport she could (although mainly focusing on Touch Football) until I was 16 where I tried my hand at Rugby League. From there Emma moved up the representative ranks, eventually winning a World Cup with the Jillaroos. Whilst still at school, Enma was introduced to Rugby Sevens in which she found a another level of passion for the game. Sticking with Sevens, she was apart of the first squad of contracted players in 2014 and has since provided her with many opportunities, not the least including winning a Gold medal at the Rio 2016 Olympics.
