Before their game against the Redcliffe Dolphins kicked off last Sunday, the Mendi Blackhawks hosted a Women In League function at Brothers Leagues Club, Townsville.

The day celebrated Women in League and was a way to say thank you to all the wonderful women in rugby league in the area.

All proceeds from the day went to the McGrath Foundation, with Tracy Bevan attending as special guest. Other attendees at the event included local politicians and players from the Blackhawks and North Queensland Toyota Cowboys.

After the function, a "pink" marquee was set up to watch the Under 15 girls from Kirwan, Thuringowa and Bowen State High Schools play.

The day finished with the Intrust Super Cup game between the Blackhawks and Dolphins, with the home team taking the win 26-16.

The Blackhawks would like to thank everyone who attended and made the day it a great success!
