Sophie Clancy is no stranger to representative sports.

The Singleton talent will add another chapter to her incredible journey this weekend when representing NSW in the National Youth Sevens tournament held on the Sunshine Coast.

Earlier this year she donned the NSW Rams jumper in Melbourne when playing in the AFL's national under-16 side carnival.

At the same time she was also selected to represent Group 21 at the Greater Northern Rugby League junior championships alongside three of her Singleton Greyhounds teammates.

Yet she admits she's now most excited to tackle the nation's best rugby talents on the eve of yet another national tournament.

"When you take out the social aspect then its Rugby Union for me because it's just the sport I'm most passionate about," Clancy told the Singleton Argus this week.

"The tournament is really exciting because the furthest I have gone with Rugby Union is at country level in the 15-per side format.

"But this weekend I get to represent NSW so that's really exciting and the fact that it's in Queensland makes it even better."

After starring for the Hunter Wildfires at country level, Clancy was one of 50 girls selected to trial for the state side earlier this year.

The 50 nominees were then shortlisted to 30 (and then 24) before divided into the two 12-member squads which will represent NSW in this weekend's tournament.

NSW 1 will play off against ACT, Victoria and Tasmania in Pool A while Clancy's NSW 2 will take on Queensland 2, South Australia and the National Indigenous side.

FIXTURE (Saturday, November 30)

NSW 2 vs. National Indigenous - 10:40am

NSW 2 vs. South Australia - 1pm

NSW 2 vs. Queensland 2 - 3.20pm

However this will only mark the start of an eventful month for the energetic 16-year-old.

She will then represent the Central Coast Eagles under-18 side at the World Schools Sevens in Auckland on December 13.

"There I'll be versing a Dutch team, Tongan team and other sides so New Zealand is going to be very exciting as well," she concluded.

"I played for the NSW U16 Rams team so hopefully the kicking component from AFL comes into play not only in Rugby but Rugby Sevens this weekend."
