WRLA Chair Steve Manning,
“I can’t wait for our season to kick off next week and a lot of work has been done because of logistical circumstances to make a two division league structure consisting of six teams per division.
“We expect them to be competitive divisions and have asked the clubs to buy into it and endeavour to make the games week to week fixtures pending the weather which hit us and other competing sports hard last year which saw a season extension during the crossover to summer.
“We expect all the games to be competitive as clubs in their respective divisions chase the ultimate prize as well as cup and plate glory as we look to increase player participation and retention in the sport.
“We thank our title league sponsors Xamax who also support both our cups and origin game which this year featured a 92nd minute golden try to seal the victory.
“Finally I would like to encourage all rugby league supporters to come along to the games to see the women’s skills on board and the dedication that they have to our sport. For those curious and wanting to give the game a go I would say if you’re not sure there is only one way to find out.
