Roosters Radio Ep 143: Sam Bremner & John Strange

In this week's episode of Roosters Radio, we are joined by NRLW star Sammy Bremner and NRLW coach John Strange.

Sammy talks about how she first started Rugby League, her recent return to the game after having her second child and what it means to wear the Red, White and Blue!

Strangey shares with us his passion for coaching, his aim for the NRLW and what we need to do this weekend to come away with the two points ahead of the huge top of the table, undefeated clash with the Knights on Sunday. 

We also review our win last Friday as we returned home and preview this Sunday's huge, must-win clash with South Sydney. 

Bremner touched on her start in Rugby League, which reignited after she was unable to play past the age of twelve. 

“As a young girl there was no real pathway and my mum wasn’t a real fan of me playing with the boys when I was twelve,” Bremner explained.

Bremner's Classy Run Ices the Cake

“So I played netball my whole life and did every other sport, and when I was eighteen I wanted to play so bad, and I heard there was a competition down in Wollongong.

“I literally messaged every girl that I thought would have half a chance of catching a footy and just asked if she wanted to play Rugby League with me, and that was thirteen years ago now.

“That team went on to represent Helensburgh, we won four premierships in a row and the journey just started from there.”
