Aussie Sevens star and Rugby League convert Emma Tonegato has gone viral after her halftime interview went pear-shaped during the Women’s State of Origin clash in Canberra.


The NSW Blues star casually dropped the f-bomb before instantly realising her mistake, dropping another swear word in her ‘oh s***’ response.

The video has been viewed hundreds of thousands of times on social media as fans loved Tonegato’s honest answer and positive vibes.

The Olympic gold medallist is fast becoming on of the top players in Women’s Rugby League and played a starring role in NSW’s victory in the second Origin clash.

The former Sevens flyer opened the scoring for NSW by latching onto a grubber kick before it went dead in goal.


The Origin victory to help the Blues reclaim the shield was another special moment for the St George Illawarra fullback, after a meteoric rise in her first NRLW season, leading her side to a grand final and winning the Dally M Medal as the game’s best player.

Tonegato will now have her sights on earning the No 1 jersey for the Jillaroos at this year’s World Cup.

The Australian Sevens star has gone all-in on rugby league after several years on the Sevens circuit with Australia.
