Emilee Cherry lifted to her game to another level after Tim Walsh took over as Head Coach in September 2013. The perfectly balanced centre counts rugby league legend Darren Lockyer - also from Roma - as her sporting hero. When Cherry took to the field at the Rio 2016 Olympics, she was the first athlete from Roma to compete at the Games since 1948.

The 23-year-old scored the most tries in the series (33), scored the most points (195) and was the stand-out player during the 2013-14 IRB World Series season and was duly named the 2014 World Sevens Player of the Year.

Cherry scored a crucial first-half double in the semi-final victory over Canada at the Rio Olympics in August 2016.
