Women called to pull on the boots

WESTS Panthers are on the lookout for new women’s league talent.

Team manager Emily Moller wants league-loving women to head to the Western Suburbs League Club on Tuesday to find out more about the new Bundaberg competition.

“The sport is really starting to take off in Bundaberg and more and more women are starting to come on board,” she said.

Moller said a lack of experience should not stop interested parties from strapping on a pair of boots and giving the game a try.

“Let’s face it, most people who have entered the competition are new to the game,” she said.

“All it really takes is a desire to want to learn and a bit of persistence.”

The 2011 season will be the first time teams battle for points after an inaugural pilot tournament last year.

Moller said rugby league should be a game for the whole family, not only men.

“There are lots of women who have sons or partners that play, but they’ve never given it a go,” she said.

“We want them to put on a pair of boots and see how much fun it can be.”

The Wests sign-on day will be held at Western Suburbs Leagues Club 6pm Tuesday.
