Great training turnout as Bulldogs encourage more girls to try league

By Kirra Livingstone

FORMER Brisbane Broncos player Jack Reed led a come and try training session for the U13, U14, U15 and U17 girls on February 15.
The aim of the session, was to attract more girls, specifically U13 and U14, to play rugby league for the Beerwah Bulldogs.
Beerwah Bulldogs junior vice president, Dale Richter, said it was a great turn out despite the poor weather, which had resulted in the postponement of an earlier training run.
“We had around 30 girls attend the training session, we had at least one new 17-year-old come along as well as a 13-year-old,” he said.
“It’s great to have events like this to boost the popularity of girls in rugby league, especially in Beerwah.”
Registrations are open for junior girls teams until the first few weeks of the season.
The junior season kicks off on March 22.
