Michael Weyman and his wife Alison recently welcomed their first child – a daughter named Lila. Michael began his career with the Canberra Raiders in 2003, and signed with the St George Illawarra Dragons in 2009. Michael is the brother of Tim Weyman, who plays for the Cronulla Sharks, and their father Ack Weyman was a legend of the game in their home town of Moruya.

Alison (nee Sanders) met Michael when they were both in high school, attending Carroll College in Broulee. They married in 2010, the wedding ceremony being performed by their former school chaplain, and then honeymooned in Fiji.

Arana Taumata and his partner Annika welcomed their daughter Maya a few weeks ago. Arana was born in New Zealand, and came to Australia to play football when he was still a teenager, first playing with the Canterbury Bulldogs in 2008. Arana has been through a period of personal turmoil, but with the help of his current club, the Penrith Panthers, the support of his family, and of course the inspiration provided by his baby daughter, he is trying to get his life back on track.
