Folau started her NRL journey playing her junior Rugby League in 2013 with the Macarthur Saints Under 10s boys, as there was no female-only team.
She played till the age of 13. Folau has always been a big fan of the physicality and adrenaline rush the NRL would bring.
In 2016, NSWRL held their first-ever female-only team competition. Folau excelled in the competition and made herself a significant presence throughout the junior women's league.
At 16 years old, Folau made her representative debut playing for SA Ram's and then represented her home country of Tonga the same year.
After an exceptional performance, Falou was scouted to play for West Tigers in the newly introduced (Lisa Fiaola U16 cup).
Since her scouting, Folau has cemented her spot in the West Tigers women's squad and the NSW State of Origin squad.
Moving on to 2023, Folau is now contracted to Wests Tigers inaugural NRLW squad.
