"It's a dream that's come off, so it's pretty sick," Evans said. 

"With the whole Queanbeyan squad there it was a pretty good moment," 

Evans said she kept celebrations fairly low key and spent the night getting back to people. 

"It's a bit of a reward for my family as well, getting me to where I want to be and supporting me along the way."

"And thanks to the Tathra Sea Eagles.

 Evans will now relocate to Sydney with the preseason starting on the 4th of November.
