While Tupuola is looking forward to running out for her team on Saturday night, she is even more excited for her team to show Australia what they can do.

"I'm also excited to see the girls run out and finally showcase what we've been training for the past few weeks," she said.

"To have our first game against Queensland will be a good hit out.

"Just to see the girls come through and see them expose themselves to the world it will be good for the other girls to see what it is like," Tupuola said.

The two teams faced each other last year in the Women's National XVs Championship on the Gold Coast, where the Brumbies scored the only try of the afternoon in a close 5-3 win against Queensland.

It was an important win for the ACT as the win helped them secure a place in the grand final, unfortunately, in the final Sydney came out on top with a 34-0 victory. 

However, Tupuola wasn't always a rugby player, she spent eight years playing netball but rugby was always part of her family. 

She remembers one day at school where the rugby captain ran up to her.

"They are like you should play rugby," Tupuola said. 

"I was like that is crazy, there is too much contact, no way."

She ended up going to one of the training sessions and the coach believed she would make it as a player but Tupuola wasn't so sure.

"Me being a netball player I was like stop being silly," she said.

She started to give Tupupola opportunities with Brumbies and that's how her career started but she has no regrets about moving from netball to rugby.

"I was too aggressive for netball in the first place so there are no regrets," she said.

She never thought she could make it to Women's Rugby World Cup with Australia but she told herself 'you never know until you give it a go' and it paid off.

Tupuola was named in the 28-player squad for the 2017 Women's Rugby World Cup in Ireland where Australia would finish sixth overall.

With the introduction of the Super W, the Brumbies have set goals to be part of that Final in April but they want to take small steps to get there and improve. 

For Tupuola she also has personal goals and wants to help the next generation of young players.

"Women's rugby development is taking a big step and also the younger generation coming through, I do want to set a goal to show them there is a career," she said.

"This is a pathway you can take so I want to influence others."
