IF it weren't for a sunny afternoon on the WIN Stadium hill five years ago, Jillaroo Keeley Davis may have ended up becoming a Matilda, or maybe a Rugby 7s star.
Instead, watching the likes of Kezie Apps and Sammy Bremner run around against the Kiwi-Ferns in the first women's Test played in Wollongong saw the then 14-year-old set her sights on something else.
"I was 14 at the time so I was pretty young, I was sitting on the hill," Davis said.
"Kezie and Sam Bremner are the only two players from the Jillaroos I really remember, but I can clearly remember [Kiwi Ferns star] Teuila Fotu-Moala absolutely whacking Sam - sorry Sammy.
"I remember thinking 'oh my God, I don't ever want to play against those Kiwi girls ever."
Five years on she's done just that, making her Test debut at the end of last season against the Kiwi Ferns, and Fotu-Moala, who'll be a teammate at the Dragons for the upcoming NRLW season.
It's something she can trace back to that day in November 2014, showing just how important it is for young girls to watch Test football up close.
"I knew there was club level rugby league but I was not aware there was an international level of rugby league," the Corrimal Cougars product said.
"That was my first time even hearing about the Jillaroos. It was great to find that out and see it as an option because at the time I was still playing soccer and [rugby] sevens.
"I didn't know there were those opportunities but that day was where I found out what rugby league was all about."
She'll be looking to do the same for the next generation of girls when Test match footy returns to WIN Stadium on October 25. It will be part of a historic double-header that will also see the Kangaroos take on the Kiwis in Wollongong for the first time ever.
Davis enjoyed a whirlwind rise through the NRLW with the Dragons to Test selection last year, her debut coming less than six months after her 18th birthday
Having endured an injury-riddled 2019 that hampered her NSW Origin selection chances, Davis said knowing there is a 'home' Test on the horizon only adds to her desire to reclaim her Jillaroos jumper.
"I didn't really take it all in until after I got injured this year and had more time to stop and think about it," Davis said.
"It all happened so quickly, it still feels so surreal that it even happened. It was such a quick [NRLW] season and then to go straight into the PM's XIII and every thing that happened.
"After missing out on Origin at the start of the year I really worked out my goals and playing [a Test] in front of all my friends and family at WIN would be amazing. It's definitely something I've striving for."
Kangaroos star, and fellow Corrimal alum, Tyson Frizell shares similar memories of the WIN Stadium hill and says playing a Test in the gong would be a career highlight.
"If I had the choice to pick anywhere in the world to play a Test it would honestly be here in Wollongong," Frizell said.
"To play for my country at a stadium where I grew up and where I came and watched a lot of footy as a kid, to have the family down here would be a dream come true.
"You play in a lot of places but for myself it's always like coming back home. It makes it extra bit special and to get the opportunity to play here for Australia would definitely be a moment I'd never forget."
