Game-breaker Maddison Levi has dispelled fears of a mass exodus from Australia’s sevens program after jumping on the 2025 Women’s Rugby World Cup bandwagon.

Superstar skipper Charlotte Caslick this week revealed her plans to try to make the switch from the high-paced sevens format to the 15-a-side game after the Paris Olympics in a bid to play at next year’s World Cup in England.

Now, 22-year-old Levi “definitely” wants to follow suit.

“Anything to help the growth of rugby in Australia,” Levi told AAP.

“And to be a dual international is something that’s super enticing to not only Charlotte and I, but I think a lot of us from the team.

“So with the World Cup being next year as well, it’d be pretty cool to help out the Wallaroos girls and go over there and try for a cross code.”

“As Maddie said, a World Cup could be on our books,” the 20-year-old said.

“We’re not shutting that door, but at the moment the Olympics is our main thing.

“But hopefully after that we can cross over and give the Wallaroos a bit of help.”

Maddison Levi broke Australia’s try-scoring record in leading the women’s sevens team to this year’s world series title and would be a welcome addition to a Wallaroos outfit that lost all three Tests in the Pacific Four tournament against New Zealand, Canada and the USA.

But the powerhouse winger insists Rugby Australia will allow herself, Casslick and any others who want to pursue their World Cup dream to juggle both disciplines.

“The beauty of this program is the coaches and staff are able to work together and help each other out.

“So if some of us go over and play the World Cup, we’re definitely not closing the sevens journey door.

“So we’ll still play sevens next year and obviously being so young, we’ve still got a couple of Olympics in us so hopefully we can make it to LA (in 2028).”

Maddison Levi, the fastest Australian woman to score 100 tries in the World Series, has already proven her sporting versatility, having started her professional career in the AFLW with the Gold Coast Suns.
