Round two of a trial tackle rugby league competition for females drew a big crowd and some exciting action at Lank Bain Sporting Complex in Wauchope on Saturday (November 18).

Featuring under 14s and 16s girls, and a women’s top grade team, the Port City Breakers team, dubbed the Beauties, performed admirably against tough opposition from Taree and Camden Haven.

Games are nine players per-side, featuring nine minute halves and all of the rules and regulations of a standard rugby league match.

Breakers juniors coach, Jay Corr, was proud of his team’s efforts despite losing two matches at the weekend.

“The first game the girls dropped the ball a lot, but we had an hour an a half before our next game so we worked on a lot in that time,”

 “We got beaten but our defence, the girls tackling technique and toughness, was great. They were really confident.”
