NRL Social: Celebrating International Women's Day

International Women's Day is here and the men and women of the NRL are helping recognise the important occasion.

The NRL has taken leaps and bounds when it comes to the women's game, with 2018 marking two historic occasions with the arrival of women's State of Origin and the NRLW competition.

Some of the players took to social media to acknowledge the game and all the incredible women that are involved in it.
