Kylie Byrne

Director and RUPA Accredited Agent

From Hamilton – New Zealand,  Kylie often jokes she was born with rugby in her blood. She grew up surrounded by the game, and when not playing in an all boys team – spent her time watching whenever she could. Fast forward quite some years, she is now an Australian citizen living in Brisbane with her co-director husband and 9 year old (just as rugby obsessed son). Kylie’s passion for rugby is undeniable – and so too is her desire to support any player who’s plan it is to pursue a professional rugby career. She has a genuine care of each individual and enjoys using her wide range of talents and experience to encourage her charges not just achieve their professional dreams, but to enjoy the journey, plan for their future and create a legacy well beyond their playing days.
