Following Scott Sio‘s turn as the second Super Rugby player in the Q&A spotlight, we return to Super W this week to meet 17-year-old Zali Waihape-Andrews.

Check out what the young star had to say and the one thing she’s not allowed to have.

1. Favourite thing to do to unwind in Canberra and why?

A: My favourite thing to do to unwind in Canberra is to go anywhere where I can watch the sun go down and eat food, preferably ice cream because it’s relaxing and the sunset is always so pretty.

2. Must see places in Canberra for visitors?

A: Some of my favourite places that you must see in Canberra are Questacon, going up Mt Ainslie for the view and to Parliament House.

3. Favourite thing about Canberra and why?

A: My favourite thing about Canberra is the multicultural festival because I love to walk around to lots of other ‘countries’ to eat their food and watch the entertainment.

4. Go-to coffee order?

A: My parents say I’m not allowed to drink coffee!

5. Best memory of your time with the Brumbies?

A: One of my best memories from the Brumbies Super W is when Dunny (Rebecca Smyth) broke her nose and had the green whistle on the bus!

6. Funniest teammate?

A: The funniest teammate would be Ema Masi – she’s the hype of the team and her paired with Iris (Verebalavu) is the funniest thing.

7. Teammate who should be the next bachelorette?

A: The next bachelorette in our team should definitely be Ella Ryan.

8. Favourite hobby outside rugby?

A: My favourite hobbies outside rugby are listening to music, dancing, watching Netflix and eating.

9. If you could have a superpower, what would it be and why?

A: If I had a superpower, it would be to change the time because then I would be able to fix things in the past or fast forward to the future to see what it’s like.

10. First memory of the Brumbies?

My first memory of playing for the Brumbies team is when we were traveling to Wagga Wagga and half the team had to drive with no air con on the bus for the whole three hours in like 35 degree heat!

Next up on the agenda is Brumbies hooker Folau Fainga’a!
