Shannon Mato started her sporting days when she was 13, playing Rugby League for her school in Whangarei on the North Island of New Zealand. Her natural talent saw her playing Rugby League at representative level soon after, but it wasn’t until her move to Australia when she was 17, that she took up Rugby in a local Sevens competition. Mato quickly developed a passion for the game and for the competition in Australia.
Mato debuted for Queensland Women’s side for the 2018 Buildcorp Super W campaign and after an impressive season, has been named in the national fold to take on Japan in the upcoming Test series.
