5 minutes with: Recently retired NRL women’s star Allana Ferguson

“To get to the point now where girls know we do play rugby league and it’s out there and our games have gotten a little bit of air time and the game’s growing – that in itself is such a huge accomplishment and such a dream come true.”  Allana Ferguson is a woman on a mission. As a self-confessed ‘footy head’ this passionate 25-year-old is determined to change the National Rugby League’s landscape for the better. Unfortunately since I first spoke to Ferguson in 2017, her role in the game has switched permanently from playmaker to TV presenter after she…

A cheat’s guide to anti-ageing: Everything you need to know from a skincare expert

Ageing. Ugh. Who really wants to contemplate the pitfalls of getting older… Not me! But rather than pretend like it’s not happening I’m attempting to face up to facts, hello fines lines EVERYWHERE, and get on the front foot in slowing this whole process down. While the subject is not necessarily high on the order of conversation, anti-ageing certainly is on the mind of most as some of us search for preventions of the seemingly inevitable. For me, it all starts with my face following the appearance of a few fines as I edge further into my mid to late 20s. Thankfully though…

The 36-year-old’s passion and pride for her various media roles, most notably as co-host of The NRL Footy Show, was evident from the moment I started picking her brain on all things career at Rebel’s new Chadstone store launch in 2016. With a significant social media following and presence on our TV screens the Sydney-sider was in Melbourne to host the new Rebel store opening. Now a mum of one to baby daughter…
