This week on Roosters Radio we sit down with Roosters NRLW captain Corban Baxter.
Corban shares her story including her first introduction to Rugby League, her many on-field achievements and her busy life off-field including raising a family, her work at the NRL and coaching.
We talk about the upcoming NRLW season with the inclusion of three new teams; how the teams have dealt with COVID and who are the players to look out for in the Roosters' lineup.
We also look back at the disappointing loss to the Penrith Panthers and look ahead to our match on Friday night against the Brisbane Broncos.

The Roosters' NRLW captain highlighted her excitement for the expanded NRLW season set to start in Grand Final week and the opportunities it will provide young Rugby Leauge players.
"It's just great to have more opportunities for the girls to be able to show what they can do on the big stage," she said.
"So, you know, my goal is for the women's competition to be a full competition, just like the men where we can train and play full time. So it's a step in the right direction. And yeah, more games for us in the meantime as well.
"So if we're playing well at that higher level, that's perfect for us. And that's ideally what I want to be doing.
"It's really exciting."
