'I'm really proud' - Davis-Welsh

For South Sydney Rabbitohs and NSW outside back Nakia Davis-Welsh, last Friday's victory in the inaugural Harvey Norman Women's State of Origin series was one that she is still coming to terms with.

A regular fullback or centre in her South Sydney side in the Harvey Norman NSW Women's Premiership, the 22-year-old took time to adjust on the wing, but managed to score a crucial try to help her side claim a tight 16-10 victory.

"It was extremely tough. At first, it was really nerve-wracking but once I had the ball in my hand it was unreal," she said.

"I'm really proud. I can't believe that we've won the first ever Women's State of Origin."

With over 7000 in attendance at North Sydney Oval, the fleet-footed winger was in awe of the support from the stands, and with so many new fans looking to take photos and get autographs from their new idols, Davis-Welsh is learning that stardom is no easy feat.

"It was overwhelming especially the crowd. Hearing the NSW chant was the most incredible feeling ever," she said.

"I just can't believe it.

"The hand is getting so sore from writing out all the autographs!" she laughed.
