Michaela Leonard’s Whirlwind 12 Month Rugby Journey

 

The 2018 University of Canberra 7’s side is peppered with athletes who have made their name as dual-sport champions.

 

But few can lay claim to having experienced success in not just two sports, but three!

 

Michaela Leonard is one such player, having made a name for herself in Basketball, as well as Rugby League and Rugby Union.

 

Opting to join the UC Women’s 7’s last season, the talented Leonard was soon on the radar of Super W heavyweight the ACT Brumbies.

 

Described as a ‘trailblazer’ for the women’s game, the UC star wasn’t just involved in Sevens action last yar.

 

Leonard also juggled responsibilities with the 13-a-side game, winning the 2017 title with the Queanbeyan Blues last season, scoring five tries along the way.

 

Add to that a stint with the Canberra Raiders and the impressive lock already has a sporting resume that many would envy.

 

That resume could be a few more lines longer before the year is out.
