Women's rugby tackling the Central West

Women's rugby tackling the Central West

[jwplayer mediaid=”13312″]

If you missed last week’s segment here it is again.

Although the rugby field has been dominated by men for over a century, the females are now starting to take over the fields in the Central West with the local female competition continuing to grow.

With four teams playing in the local competition this year and a summer rugby 7s competition set to begin in the new year, female rugby is increasing in participation at a fast rate.

As the Australian Women’s 7s side continues to dominate the international stage, and with the side expected to place at the Rio Olympics in 2016, participation in Australia and more specifically in the Central West is set to boom.

Female rugby is also receiving plenty of support from our Wallabies side, with Wallabies hooker Tatafu Polota Nau backing female rugby to continue it’s growth throughout the Central West.
