Muswellbrook's Caitlin Moran to steer Jillaroos from halfback in Women's Rugby League World Cup final

FORMER Muswellbrook Public School student Caitlin Moran can etch her name in the history books on Saturday afternoon.

The talented youngster will line up for the Australian Jillaroos against New Zealand in the final of the 2017 Women’s Rugby League World Cup at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium.

The 21-year-old has been a standout for the national side during the preliminary rounds.

Australia thrashed the Cook Islands 58-4 and followed that up with big wins over England (38-0) and Canada (88-0).

The Jillaroos then accounted for Canada 58-6 in the semi-final to set up the showdown with the Kiwi Ferns.

Moran made her Australian debut in 2016 before playing in the Auckland Nines and Trans-Tasman Test this season.

“I was ‘stoked’ to be named for my first World Cup,” she said.

Saturday’s match kicks off at 3.45pm (AEST).
