Woodbridge Cup star Taylor Keppie has shone bright throughout the 2019 Western Women's Rugby League under 15s season and on Saturday she proved her class again.
The young Woodies half was brilliant in her side's thumping grand final victory over the Wiradjuri Goannas, scoring two tries and kicking four goals in the 46-22 victory at Wellington.
Keppie performed on another level to the rest of the players on show at Kennard Park, as she'd done all season, so it didn't shock anyone when the Woodbridge gun accepted both player of the grand final and player of the year awards at the post-game presentation.
Coach Garry Hewen believes Keppie and a handful of his premiership-winning outfit are more than capable of kicking on and making a good fist of women's rugby league.
"Taylor, the player of the final, she'd love to go on with her footy. There's two or three I think that certainly can it's just up to them and their parents," Hewen said.
"In all I reckon the competition was brilliant. It's good for the girls. if they're prepared to put in the work then they'll get the rewards."
That reward came on Saturday, with Libby Peschka and Lily Holmes also scoring doubles alongside the effort of Keppie in the impressive decider win.
Vipers and Goannas will do battle in the under 18s grand final as one of the lead-up games to Saturday's NRL clash at Bathurst after both won through their semi-final contests with relative ease.
The Vipers beat Mudgee 52-16 in their semi-final, while Goannas knocked off Woodbridge.
