Hastings League will launch their first-ever Friday Night Women’s Tackle Competition, with over 80 girls set to compete in the four-team open-age competition.

Kicking-off on Friday, 1st June and running for ten rounds, the competition will feature teams from Beechwood, Comboyne, Lower Macleay and Kendal; with the Grand-Finals taking place on the 18th of August.

Competition Coordinator Belinda Andersen admitted she was excited to see the competition begin.

“There are a lot of girls coming to the sports that have never played before, so it will be really exciting for them to give it a go,” said Andersen.

CRL Women’s Participation Officer Kylie Hilder believes the time is right for a female tackle competition to be introduced into the area.

“The success of the Hastings League CRL Women’s Nines proved there was a strong appetite for Women’s Rugby League in the area,” said Hilder.

“The response from teams participating in the Nines was fantastic and the time is definitely right to introduce this competition and it’s an exciting opportunity for the players involved.

“The creation of new competitions and opportunities allows more players to be part of the growing pathway for female players in the game.”
