Charlie Rule, says her “older sisters” make her feel safe and give her the confidence to play her natural game on the field.

Prior to last weekend’s clash, Rule picked out two team-mates in particular who lead by example and show what it means to be a Sydney FC player.

The 19-year-old is a relative newcomer to the squad however has shown maturity with her performances on the field which have put her within inches of Matildas selection.

And she credits two girls for the protection they offer.

“Charlotte [Mclean] and Nat [Tobin] are the best combination to have behind me and next to me. They’ve always got you covered, but they’re also great leaders. They lead the team very well, and they make me feel safe with them next to me,” she said.

“They feel like older sisters to look up to which is cool and we just have a close bond.”

Charlie believes that the Sky Blues are without a doubt the best team in the land.

“We have the best defence, best midfield, and best forwards in the league,” she said.

“As a team, we’re so connected, and as individuals, we’re all very good. We just put our head down and want to do the best for each other.”

In their last away fixture, the Sky Blues had their finger on the pulse smashing Melbourne Victory 6-3, Rule believes the confidence is high heading into this weekend’s clash with Canberra.

“We’re all such a tight-knit group and have good friends here, and it’s just so much fun when we get to play together,” Charlie said. 

“Every game, we play like it’s our last and really combine as a group. I think that’s why we play so well because we’re such good mates.”

The team is building on each game, using their previous performances to see where they can improve. “We build on each game, and even being at our top, we can still learn from our mistakes,” Charlie said.
