Player Bio

Born in Canberra in August 1999, the 24-year-old comes over from Australia to join the Warriors for the 2024 Betfred Women’s Super League season.

Phonsaya has 12-years of Rugby League playing experience, having also played Rugby Union. At U16 she represented ACT School Girls and at U18 the Canberra Raiders Tarsha Gale Cup as well as having played in the NSWRL Monaro Colts.

In 2021, she was awarded the Women’s representative Player of the Year in Canberra which motivated her to seek opportunities elsewhere. From there, she made the move from Canberra to Brisbane in 2021 to participate in the BMD Premiership, where she signed for Wynnum Manly Seagulls and played for two years.

Phonsaya, who is of Asian (Laos) heritage, represented Asian United XIII against the Philippines last year.

Most recently, the Second Row signed for Western Clydesdales, also in the BMD Premiership where she played alongside new recruit Rease Casey as well as Jillaroo World Cup winners Ali Brigginshaw and Kezie Apps, before making the move to Wigan for the rest of the 2024 season.
