About

Up, Up Cronulla, sharks fan & former women's rugby/rugby league player: represented NSW in rugby league and Sydney in union. Now a journalism student at Macleay College. Totally useless info: related to Sharks halfback Chad Townsend - on my father's side (although I haven't met him as yet) and on my mother's side Harold Holt was my great-gran's cousin - no word of a lie. Dad was well known as a jockey - Keith Layt who once threatened to punch fellow hoop George Moore out in the jockeys room and mum is former fashion guru Sandra Layt. Me - just a slacker who loves my sport - playing it and now apparently writing about it. In a former life my PB in athletics was 50.80 seconds for the 400 metre sprint.
