The Vodafone Warriors will be represented in the halves in both internationals at Hunter Stadium in Newcastle tonight.

While halfback Shaun Johnson is the sole player lining up for the Kiwis in the Anzac Test against the Kangaroos, the club also has Georgia Hale at standoff for the Kiwis Ferns in the curtain-raiser against the Jillaroos (7.35pm kick-off NZT).

Now working for the Vodafone Warriors as an NRL ambassador, Hale made her Test debut in the corresponding international at Suncorp Stadium last year. The Kiwi Ferns lost 14-22 before the Kiwis went on to stun the Kangaroos 26-12 for their first Anzac Test win since 1998.

She first represented the Kiwi Ferns at the NRL Auckland Nines at Eden Park in 2015 and again this year. The New Zealanders beat the Jillaroos in both campaigns, Hale named the player of the series this year.

Vodafone Warriors TV caught up with her to talk about balancing her international sporting aspirations with her role at the club.
