Megan and Jess met at the National Cricket Centre in Brisbane. Talking about their meeting, Megan said, “I saw a cute girl behind the desk and I was like ‘I’m going to woo her’. So, I started flirting with her and I kind of got a little back and I was like ‘Hang on here and the rest is history. She texted me after getting my number out of the CA system. Which I found rather funny at the time! I was so impressed by it because I was like, ‘No one really asks for a number anymore.”
