Women and Girls

Female participation remains the fastest growing participation category in the game, and we believe it is more crucial than ever to continue to build a platform to further the role of female athletes, fans and administrators within our game.

2018 represents a significant year for women's rugby league, with the emergence of a Premiership competition, together with increased pathways and opportunities for women in league.

Another major initiative introduced in 2018 is the identification of 40 elite female rugby league players based in Australia, who will represent the game as marquee NRL players in 2018.
