CHAMPION boxer, netball premiership winner and a rugby league player earmarked for a bright future - it is fair to say that Kate Fallon is one talented sporting all-rounder.
After a netball season that saw her play representative games for Bathurst and the Western Region Academy of Sport as well as being part of the Collegians Mystified side which won the A grade grand final, Fallon has switched focus.
The three-time Australian Amateur Boxing League national champion is training for upcoming bouts, but it is rugby league where the most exciting things are taking place.
She is currently training with a NSW talent squad for under 15 and under 16 players.
"I go down every couple of weeks and train with some really awesome coaches, they have really good credentials. They help us with our skills, so we can standout in our weekend comp," 15-year-old Fallon said.
"It's hard to get ID'd where we live, out here in Bathurst, but I was lucky enough that Jess [Skinner] helped get me in the talent squad.
"I'm so lucky to have all these opportunities, I know a lot of people would love to have them and it's great to be able to be part of this talent squad and go to these training sessions."
Fallon started playing rugby league as a four-year-old for the La Perouse Panthers when she lived in Sydney. She continued until she was 10.
But last year, with her mother Anna also involved in the sport, Fallon once again laced up her boots.

She is now playing for the Panorama Platypi in the Western Women's Rugby League competition, while earlier this month she reunited with some of her former La Perouse team-mates at the NSW Koori Knockout.
The centre turned second-rower and lock was part of the Panthers' under 16s side which won their division of the tournament.
Fallon was picked as player of the grand final, the Panthers beating Redfern 34-0.
"It was the first female under 16s comp at the Koori Knockout ever and we were very lucky to take it out with only one try being scored against us," Fallon said.
"It was good to be able to play with people I grew up with and played with when I was younger - from where my roots came from."
Though not yet old enough to be eligible for the under 18s Tarsha Gale Cup - a New South Wales Rugby League nine-a-side competition - Fallon has attracted interest from some of the member clubs. The prospect of doing that has her keen to further develop her league skills.
"Definitely I'd love to pursue this. I have a massive passion for rugby league and the community around it is amazing," she said.
