Ngalika Barker Signs for 2021

Where have you come from? Club, location?

Waratah cheetahs which is based in the Newcastle area.

What has brought you across to the Bears?

Its a New environment and a new challenge. All-round I want to improve my game and learn as much as possible and Being around girls who want the same thing I feel will benefit me a lot. Hopefully, I can better my game altogether in rugby league being here.

What are you looking forward to about being part of the Bears in 2021?

I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of new people, and hopefully playing some good footy with a great bunch of girls in a club that supports, looks after, and pushes us, and individually just see how I go.

What is your occupation? And do you think this job helps your rugby skills or careers in any way?

I am an “Aborginal Student Learning Support Officer” at two High Schools. This job has built my Confidence a lot!! and it has taught me about the importance of communication and how simple everything can be if it’s done properly. This is 100% in Rugby League. Having those skills in general have improved my footy.

What are you looking forward to outside of rugby league in 2021?

Seeing what career opportunities open up for me.
