Australian rugby sevens superstar Ellia Green knows how to sniff out a try – and a global rap mogul.

The 2016 Olympic gold medalist shared the hilarious tale of how she talked – and stalked – her way into 50 Cent’s Dubai hotel suite on Stan Sport’s Rugby Heaven on Tuesday night.

Green, who will spearhead Australia’s Olympic title defence in Tokyo this year, was in the UAE preparing for the Dubai Sevens in 2015 when she got wind that the US hip hop legend was staying in the same hotel.

After Green’s initial Instagram proposition for the rapper to claim some sevens tickets in the lobby went unanswered, the flying winger stepped up her game, heist movie style.

“Long story short, I ended up asking the ladies at reception for Curtis Jackson (50 Cent’s real name),” Green told the intrigued Rugby Heaven panel.

“I was like ‘he’s my mate, Curtis, he’s in tower B, I need to give him these tickets to the Dubai Sevens, I need to deliver them to the door.’

“So she’s like ‘oh, Mr Curtis Jackson, yeah sure, he’s in room 400 and something in tower B.’ That’s literally as easy as it was because a lot of the workers didn’t know the scale of how famous he was, when I said Curtis Jackson.

“So I basically just went to the lift and I was very smooth, I’ve watched a lot of movies about how to get up to people’s levels without a key.

“I saw a really well dressed man in a suit and said ‘oh, I must have left my key in the room again,’ and he was like ‘oh, don’t worry, I’ll swipe.’ It was as simple as that.”

After a little more hotel maneuvering, Green was close to her target.

And she had an entourage of her own, featuring two of her teammates.

“I had a camera woman which was Chloe Dalton and I had back up security on call which was ‘Huawei,’ Amy Turner,” Green explained.

“She was waiting on the phone for when I got in the room to prove that that room was dialing, because they knew what room he was in.”

And now, for the moment of truth.

“I knocked on the door and my heart was beating fast because I was about to bust out 21 Questions,” Green said, before revealing a slightly unsavoury plot twist.

“Basically I got there and you don’t want to know what I found on the floor. Let’s just say it was a rubber of some kind.”

But overall, no regrets for the keen beat boxer and rapper.

“It’s a very proud achievement.”
