More women needed in some Warwick touch teams

THE Warwick Touch Association has just started its first season for 2017 and already has more than 400 registered players.

Wednesday is touch footy night and games are being played each week at the touch fields in Jackie Howe Drive, as well as at Collegians and Suburbs junior rugby league grounds, and the Warwick Cowboys and Warwick Water Rats field.

Games are being played in five grades. This is only the second season where numbers have demanded a fifth grade.

Justin Nolan is the new president of the association and said there were still openings for more women to play in the mixed competitions.

"We need three of the six players on the field at all times to be women and some teams are looking to attract more women players. In some teams, the three women aren't getting a break.”

Most teams have between 10 and 12 players.

The finals for the first season will start at the end of May and the second season will start after the mid-year school holidays and go to December.

Games are not played in school holidays or on the Wednesdays of State of Origin. Women keen to join a team now can call the president for more information or ask at the office at the touch fields tonight.

WHAT: Warwick Touch Association

WHERE: Touch fields and footy fields on each side of the Condamine River.
