NSW takes on Queensland in a Women?s Rugby League interstate challenge match at Henson Park this Saturday. The Queenslanders won both interstate matches in 2004, but the NSW girls have vowed to end the Maroons? dominance.
The NSW team coach Ray Windle (who also coaches the Balmain SG Ball team) is very impressed with the commitment of the NSW squad and their thorough application to training and game preparation. Windle points out that there are several outstanding athletes in the NSW team, and that early arrivals at Henson Park on Saturday will see a very high standard of Rugby League football on show.
Caryl Jarrett, Sue Curtis and Katrina Fanning are all NSW touch football and Oztag representative players, while 16 years-old Jade Ferguson is exceptionally fast and has great evasive ability.
