McGrath-West is back on deck for 2023 after bursting onto the scene for the Dragons in her debut NRLW season a year ago.

A workhorse middle forward, McGrath-West hails from Harden in the South West Slopes region of New South Wales and did not become involved in rugby league until five years ago.

Still just 22, she spent her Tarsha Gale Cup days with the Raiders before making the move up to Sydney to play in the Harvey Norman Women’s Premiership for the Bears and eventually earn an NRLW contract with the Red V.

She was also a part of the Bulldogs' side that reached the Harvey Norman Women's Premiership Grand Final this past season.
