New Zealand born Botille Vette-Welsh made her debut for the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s team last year and has been electric at fullback for the Harvey Norman Women’s premiership Wests Tigers team in 2020 - her form conducive to a spot in the NSW team.
The 24-year-old represented NSW City in the 2019 Women’s National Championships at fullback, recording two try assists and scoring two tries in three games.
That performance helped her gain a spot in the NSW side, where she played 41 minutes off the bench at hooker and made 26 tackles through the middle.
In 2019, she earned another representative honour as she made her debut for the Australian Jillaroos against the Kiwi Ferns, coming off the bench and playing 32 minutes as a utility.
Vette-Welsh captained the Tigers into the Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership semi-finals, scoring their lone try in the 16-4 loss to the North Sydney Bears
The skipper was also voted by her teammates as the Players’ Player of the Year for the second consecutive season.
She played for the Sydney Roosters in the inaugural 2018 NRLW, then in the proceeding season she switched to the St George Illawarra Dragons then jumped back again to the Roosters in 2020, where she played two games.
We are sure to see more of this exciting talent in the 2021 season and the seasons beyond.
