Teenage girls urged to tackle experience

GIRLS aged 15 and 16 are invited to participate in a girls rugby league come-and-try day across the Warwick district.

The come-and-try session will introduce girls to the rules and skills of the game and let them have a rugby league experience in a fun, safe and enjoyable environment.

This year for the first time a Warwick and District under-16 girls representative team will be selected to play at the South West Mustangs trials in Chinchilla.

From the trials at Chinchilla, an under-16 girls South West Mustangs team will be selected to play at the state carnival in Cairns this year.

The first session is tomorrow at the Warwick Collegians JRL Club in Jackie Howe Drive.

There will be a session for the girls on Friday at Goondiwindi JRL and then on April 23 at Stanthorpe JRL.

Session times are from 4.30pm to 5.30pm for girls born in 1998 and 1999. The sessions are free.

Three women with a Warwick/Killarney connection were part of the winning Australian team in the last World Cup.
