Hannah Southwell

Hannah Southwell was appointed to the RLPA Board as a casual vacancy in July 2021.

Hannah became the first-ever female player to join the RLPA Board of Directors.

The Sydney Roosters NRLW star has represented New South Wales and Australia previously, and in 2020 won the prestigious Players’ Champion honour. 

“I’m proud to join the RLPA’s Board and be able to represent my fellow players at this level,” she said about her appointment.

“Establishing a collective agreement for NRLW players is one goal I would love to help achieve through my position with the RLPA.

“However, I also look forward to having a voice on a wide range of matters across the game and continuing my own professional development along the way.”

Hannah is also a member of the inaugural Women’s Player Advisory Group in 2021.
