North Midlands Falcons are a women's rugby team made up of Portarlington and Cill Dara RFC and is a club where Culliton enjoyed great success. She was an integral part of their league and cup double back in 2018 and is a former winner of the Leinster Express sportstar of the month award which she picked up in April of 2018 on that back of that double success.

Also a keen Gaelic footballer, she lined out for St Conleth's and was a excellent defender.

This will be the Melbourne Rebels fourth season competing in the Super W league and everyone at the club is excited to get going again after a long lay off due to Covid-19.
