Wallaroos hooker Tania Naden is another late bloomer in the squad after making her international debut against Wales in 2022 following a strong Super W season. The 32-year-old only started playing rugby union seven years ago when the wife of Canberra Raiders star Josh Papalii, Sepa, encouraged her to join her rugby team. After impressing, Naden has been part of the Brumbies system since its inception (2018) and is a Canberra local through and through after being born in the nation’s capital. Away from rugby, Naden is a project manager at RPS in Canberra.
