The future of woman's RL


QLD now on top with field position. Look a more gelled side.
#12 Papalii and #8 Yarrow the standouts early for QLD.


Massive forward pass for NSW to hit back. Touchie must be blind.

Great sideline conversion though.

And interesting game. I only saw bits and pieces. I thought the ref was pretty ordinary and very pro QLD.
QLD were much better than the invitational side (Not a NSW rep team). They seemed to all be footballers.

To be honest I was a bit disappointed in the quality of the game esp from the nonQLD team. I was still very happy that something like this is going on. Lets hope it keeps going.

I do agree I think QLD will dominate the Australian team. I think Bulman was one of the other teams best. She just needs to learn to be a bit more relaxed in her passing

The Partisan

QLD 30 def NSW/ACT 6

Should see a strong representation from QLD named in the Australian side to tour Europe.
Is there information on the tour to Europe ?
I think Women's / Girls RL has a greater potential to spread the code than the Men's game.

Being in the top ten / twenty nations is an attractive carrot to dangle to government bodies.

Outside the Oceanic, Celtic, English and French squads I think the competition for places will be reasonably even in the early days and then it will be up to who invests more into the women's game.
