Biography

Natasha Haines brings a wealth of on-field experience to the Wallaroos after representing Western Australia in Sevens and 15s as well as Victoria in touch football. Haines - Patient Transport Officer with St John Ambulance - is a product of the Gold Talent ID program and made her debut in Australian colours in Hong Kong during the 2013-2014 IRB Seven's World Series. Haines is the second member of her extended family to play rugby for Australia. Haines' cousin James Grant is a former Wallaby and Balmain Tigers player. Fun fact: Natasha was a winning challenger in 2008 on the television show Gladiators.

Captaining the Western Force team at the 2017 Buildcorp Women’s Nationals, Haines led her youthful squad by example. The WA side went agonisingly close to toppling the eventual champions Sydney, trailing just 3-0 until the final 10 minutes of the match, when a last-gasp Sydney try extended their lead.

2017

Haines was selected to represent Australia at the International Women's Rugby Series in New Zealand.
