Former Katrina Fanning Shield player Yasmin Meakes will take part in the NRLW grand final this Sunday afternoon.

The Sydney Roosters centre played in the inaugural Katrina Fanning Shield competition in 2017 for the Queanbeyan Blues, with the side going on to win the competition.

Meakes starred in the 2017 grand final, winning the Cath Welch Medal for Player of the Match.

Since then Meakes made the switch to rugby union, becoming an Australian Rugby Sevens representative in 2018 before switching back to league this year and joining the NRLW competition.

The Roosters take on the Brisbane Broncos in the Grand Final, with another Canberra Raiders connection in the Broncos team.

Millie Boyle is a prop in the Broncos grand final starting side. Her dad is David Boyle, who was Raider #125.

David played for the Canberra Raiders from 1991-1998, where he notched up 117 matches.

Both Meakes and Boyle will be hoping their side can claim grand final victory.

The two sides met last round, with the Broncos winning that game 24-16. But the Roosters will be fired up and hoping to turn that result around this weekend.

The NRLW Grand Final kicks off at 4:05pm this Sunday 25th October at ANZ Stadium, Sydney.
