Warriors women inspiration to youth
how much fun they had.
“We were blown away when the Warriors said they would come. I got their response within a week and when we put the word out it was really well received.
“Women have a good tight bond and good strengths. Women have this feminine thing about us, that we can get things done, we can lead and create, it’s almost like a secret language between us, a sisterhood.”
Warriors player Annetta Nuuausala said at the end of the day, the most important thing was that the girls had fun.
“We’re just trying to pave that pathway for the girls and it has to start somewhere, so here we are. There’s a lot of talent coming through and I honestly can’t wait to see our younger generation come through.”
She loved being part of the first women’s NRL competition.
“It’s an awesome feeling, just to know that you’re making history. It will only start to build from here and I can’t wait to see what we have for upcoming years.
“We need to make sure there are more options for our girls because at the end of the day we do want to grow the game - women can do what men can do,” Nuuausala said.
