Killarney prop in losing All Stars league team

RUGBY LEAGUE: Stephanie Hancock was co-captain of the World All Stars in Friday's women's game in Newcastle.

The experienced prop from Killarney was unfortunately on a losing side as the Indigenous All Stars won 14-4.

Hancock admitted to media outlets after the game that her team was clearly outplayed by a highly motivated Indigenous side.

Halfback Simone Smith from the Indigenous All Stars was player of the match and like Hancock is keen to play for the Jillaroos in the World Cup later this year in Australia.

Hancock's regular front row partner in the Australian team, Heather Ballinger, who went to school at Scots PGC College in Warwick, is currently injured but will be available for selection in the Australian team to play New Zealand in May in Canberra on the same program as the men's Test.
