Hireme sinks War­riors

The Southland Times - - Sport -

The War­riors’ hopes of mak­ing the NRLW Grand Fi­nal are in a per­ilous state thanks to ar­guably New Zealand’s most fa­mous fe­male league player, Honey Hireme.

The Dragons beat the War­riors 22-10 Syd­ney on Satur­day, with Hireme, of­ten known as Honey Bill Wil­liams, helped se­cure the win and the irony of it wasn’t missed.

De­spite be­ing a dual in­ter­na­tional for New Zealand in league and rugby, she was picked up by the Dragons for the in­au­gu­ral year of this com­pe­ti­tion and the 37-year-old showed she’s still a player with plenty of class.
