Jillaroos star bites back at comments about her age

Australian Jillaroos star Ali Brigginshaw has declared she will go again at the Women’s World Cup in France 2025 after helping her country win a third consecutive title.

Co-captain Brigginshaw has been involved in every one of those three title wins over the last nine years, with the 32-year-old scrum-half showing no signs of slowing down after another fine display in the 54-4 win over the Kiwi Ferns at Old Trafford.

After picking up the Player of the Match award in the World Cup Final for the second time, having also claimed the award back in the 2017 final, Brigginshaw had a message to those who doubted her.

“I forgot what age I am,” she said. “All the people that said I was too old, I’m still here and I am going for France.

“That was unbelievable from all the girls that performance. We had a defence focus and I have never been part of a group that can defend like that, it was something special.

“We never rest in defence and you saw that today, we are kicking ourselves about that try we conceded but that’s the mentality we have.

“We had a great focus today and I am so proud of the girls.”
