Caitlin Moran went into her maiden World Cup not knowing, or worrying about, what position she would play for the Jillaroos.
But now the versatile Upper Hunter-bred, Wallsend-based, North Newcastle utility will steer the Australian women’s team around the final from halfback.
Moran, who turned 21 while in camp last month, will continue as national pivot against New Zealand in Brisbane on Saturday.
“It doesn’t worry me where I play,” Moran said.
“I’m just happy being part of it all. It’s a dream come true.”
It was a mixed bag for Moran’s North Newcastle teammates with Isabelle Kelly named in the centres on Friday while Bec Young missed the 17-player squad.
