Just watching the women's SL Grand Final on Sky Sports Mix. Standard is ok, but it's entertaining nonetheless and it's going to improve with far more exposure.

Thought I'd check out how our women's team is doing and we finished bottom of the 2nd tier, with 2 points deducted for not completing fixtures.

What's going on with it? The women's game seems to be thriving in West Yorkshire and North West, and even York have a SL team. Think it could do with far more exposure. I've coached some very talented girls in primary schools over the years (who were better than the boys of the same age). Would be great to see them play for the Black and Whites when they're older.

Just dont get the the clamour over womens rugby/football etc

Rugby league and all its history is now behind womens football in this country - is that right? Of course not - no problem with women playing football or rugby but for it to almost be grabbing equal or bigger headlines and support with little or no history is all wrong imo

Your point about history and women playing rugby has validity but not when it comes to women's football which has history reaching back into the 19th century. In the 1920's the FA banned women from using their grounds with the reason that football damaged women's bodies! This ban was not revoked until about 50 years ago.

Good to see in the NRL women joining the senior officiating ranks with currently 2 female refs joining the males for NRL match selection. They are also used as assistant referees.

No idea how female officiating is going in English Rugby League but have yet to see any female there as an assistant referee. Know of one female assistant referee in the Premier League.

This all depends on your view of History, I have a 1980 RLmag that are advertising for women players for Dockers.

Freddie Miller the first woman ref was from Hull supported wrong team though and has had a play about her, but do agree the top of the game have dragged there feet ever since.

I have no problem with women playing rugby so long as the tea is done and the house is clean
