Can Kylie Hilder Take The NSW Women’s Origin Team All The Way?

Kylie Hilder is the Head Coach of the NSW women’s State of Origin team, the Sky Blues. She’s played internationally in both rugby league and touch football and is now using that experience to coach the women’s game in a prime-time TV slot.

Kylie joins Cate and Hayley to talk about what it will take for NSW to take home the shield for Women’s Origin 2023, how a coach makes the tough choice to bench a player and how it's delivered to them, PLUS the secret she believes parents need to follow to support their aspiring athletes.
