Tamika Upton first started playing rugby league as a child in Blackwater.

Upton played touch football before beginning her career as a rugby league player. During the 2017 Trans Tasman Series, she played for the Australian national team, the Emus.

Additionally, she co-captained the Queensland Cowboys in the 2017 NRL Touch Competition.

Later in 2018, Tamika joined the Yeppoon Seagulls’ women’s side only to sign with the Brisbane Broncos NRL Women’s Premiership team in July 2019.

However, the fullback played for the Broncos at the NRL Nines in 2020.

There, she made it into the Team of the Tournament and moved on to join the Central Queensland Capras in the QRL Women’s Premiership.

Recently, Upton with Newcastle has been named the NRLW Dally M Medal winner for 2023.

She prepares to face the Titans in the season finale on Sunday in hopes of capping an explosive campaign with a championship.

Who Are Tracy and Cameron Upton?

Tamika Upton was born in Rockhampton, Australia, to her parents: her father, Cameron, and her mother, Tracy Upton.

The Indigenous Australian descent grew up in Queensland alongside her two siblings, brother Koby and sister Lorri Upton.

Without her parents, Tracy and Cameron Upton, Tamika Upton’s road to becoming a professional rugby league player would not have been feasible.

There isn’t much known about Tamika’s parents or siblings, but one can only imagine how proud they must have been of their daughter’s accomplishments.

As parents, they have unquestionably been her biggest supporters, inspiring her and supporting her through the highs and lows of her career.

The three-time NRLW premiership winner recently talked about her family while receiving her 2023 NRLW Dally M Medal.

“My family, I know they’re supporting me back home and it’s pretty tough living away but I need to send a shoutout to the Southwell family because having a home away from home is pretty special.”

Tamika’s parents are seen attending her daughter’s play whenever possible.

We are just so happy that she’s enjoying it, which obviously you can tell in the way she played that she is,” said Tracy.
