Raecene Mcgregor was born on October 23, 1997, to a New Zealand family in Sydney, Australia.

The 24-year-old young rugby player was raised by her parents, a brother, and a sister. Like every parent, Glenys and her husband Travis wanted the best for her children and family. It is one of many reasons they migrated to Australia from New Zealand.

While their stay in New Zealand, none of the kids could garner any success, and with no significant hits in the country, the family moved to Sydney, Australia, which ultimately transformed their fate. Raecene Mcgregor is giving her parents every ounce of happiness as she recently won the 2022 NRLW Dally M Medal.

Raecene was characterized as a Miracle Child by her mother, Glenys, when she was born about twenty-four years ago. After 12 miscarriages, Glenys pregnancy was a significant relief, arriving soon after she and her husband Travis had moved from New Zealand.

Their parents could not believe that even born prematurely, Rae, as they called for Raecene, was fighting hard to survive at her early stage. As born early, she required constant monitoring to guarantee her survival.

Similarly, her sister Page McGregor was received just a year and a half later, quite busy in her mother Glenys womb. Now 20 years later, both of her daughters represent New South Wales and play in competitive rugby leagues.

Raecene Mcgregor Career Background

She serves as a cloakroom attendant for a local Rugby League team in her spare time. Rae’s chosen profession has nothing to do with sports. She is currently enrolled in a carpenter apprenticeship. The Wests Tigers five-eighth admits that it has been difficult, not least because of the misogyny she has encountered on the job.

However, before becoming a full-time carpenter, Rae McGregor played for her national team New Zealand in the Rugby League World Cup in November 2017. While her sister is pursuing a Sevens career for Australia, she believes she was denied the opportunity to excel in Rugby League.

During the Covid 19 pandemic in 2020, she suffered a terrible blow to her career due to an injury. Rae was shelved at home, which gave her some time to spend with her mother and sister. She praised both of them, especially her mother, Glenys, for all the support and help they gave him.
