The duel international was 16 when she played in her first match.
Trenamancan’t wait to experience the nation’s strongest female competition.
“I am more stoked than anything,” Trenaman said.
“I’m sure when I wake up in the morning I’ll probably be pretty nervous.”

The opportunity comes less than a week after Trenaman took part in the Governor-General XI’s team against South Africa.
After being partSunday’s victory, the 15-year-old said the chance to play for NSW capped off what had already been a massive week.
However, she isn’t focusing on her individual performance and is just looking to contribute for the team and hopefully come away with the win.
Breakers coach Joanne Broadbent has beenimpressed by the skills of the 15-year-old leg spinner.
“Rachel is a real team player, she is incredibly committed and competitive,” Broadbent said.
“She is very good at reading the game when batting and assessing the situation calmly in the field.
“These strengths make her a force to be reckoned with and are really going to come to the fore this weekend, especially when we play in Melbourne, as we haven’t had the opportunity to play at Casey Fields yet and we know that the Victorian sides favour spin.”
Trenaman is one of three teenagers to be drafted into the team.
Hannah Trethewy, 17,and Mikayla Hinkley, 18, have also been included in theteam to tackleVictorian Spirit and the ACT Meteors this weekend.

The trio have large boots to fill butBroadbent believes they are move than capable of stepping up to the challenge.
