Teenager Maya Stewart opened her Super W try-scoring account over the weekend in her sides 15-12 win over interstate rivals Queensland.
In just her second match with NSW, the 18-year-old finished off a fantastic piece of play.
The win was a rematch of the 2018 Grand Final and will likely see the Waratahs take the minor premiers title plus the advantage of a home final.
"It was really good having the crowd behind us, it really lifts the girls and the energy is great," Stewart said.
From Nelson Bay in the Hunter Region of New South Wales, the young star only started playing union last year despite being from a rugby family.
As a child, she excelled in a range of sports from athletics to netball and touch to nippers and it wasn't any different in rugby.
After 10 months in the sport, she went on to represent her country in the World School U/18 Sevens after playing in the Aon University 7s competition for the University of New England.
The winger was named in the Waratahs training squad shortly after being announced in the University Sevens Dream Team.
NSW have a mixed bag of players in their squad this season with a handful of players having made their Super W debut in the opening two games but there is also experience amongst their ranks.
"It's good to have those experienced players helping the young ones, like me," she said.
"I only debuted last week so it was great to have them talking to me, making me feel safe, secure and comfortable."
The Waratahs take the trip across to Western Australia on the weekend as they face RugbyWA Women at 6:30pm AEDT.
