10 questions with … Blue Mua Laloifi

What's your nickname?

I get 'Moo'. It's a go-to for most of the girls. I don't know why you couldn't just add the 'A' for 'Mua'. It's short as it is.

Whose number did you wear on your back as a kid?

I loved Michael Jordan and LeBron James, I'm a big basketball fan. We didn't know a lot of footy players, just because we're from New Zealand. I wear No.8 now because we had numbers that we could pick. Apparently, good numbers in the footy world are the single-digit numbers. So, No.8 was the only single-digit number there and I took it. But it's also Kobe Bryant's number as well and I'm a fan of his. 

What hobbies did you pick up during isolation/lockdown?

I started doing TikToks. I was terrible, but I did them. I wanted to start cooking, but the fire alarm would start going off, so I quickly turned away from that. But I did plenty of dancing and stuff like that.

What's your most-used phone app, excluding social media?

I would say Candy Crush. I think because I was bored throughout isolation, so that became a favourite app of mine to really get my mind off things for a couple of hours during the day. 

Which teammate would go far in MasterChef?

It might be Lucy McEvoy. I feel like she's a low-key good cook. She's from the country, so she's very hands-on with everything. I think she'd probably be a good cook.

If you could be any AFLW player for a day, who would you be and why?

I think Katie Loynes. She's always getting treatment. She's always on the massage table, she does less gym than everyone, she does less running, but then she still manages to smash it on game day. I would take that. You would get massages for as long as you want and do less work. 

Worst teammate on social media?

I wouldn't say she's the worst, but I think Kerryn Harrington. She doesn't post anything, really. But I feel like all of the girls produce some pretty quality content. The worst thing is they probably think it's me. I just post random stuff. 

Which songs are on your pre-game playlist?

Have you heard 'Clown' by Emeli Sande? It's a really slow song. I like to listen to 'My Heart Will Go On' by Celine Dion as well. I just like to listen to slow jams. I'm not really someone that gets pumped up by hard techno stuff. 

Who is the coach's pet and why?

I would say Kerryn Harrington. She never gets in trouble for anything. I feel like if I were to do what she does, I'd be running laps. I love her to death, but she'd get away with anything. Another one that's a newcomer is Mimi Hill. She's come in and she always does what the coach says. 

What's one thing most people wouldn't know about you?

It's probably my love for plants. I don't know anything about them, but I love a good garden. If you've got a nice backyard, I'll always comment on it.
