Members of the Harvey Norman Queensland Women’s coaching staff gathered for the first time this past weekend to help lay the foundation for a ground-breaking year ahead and beyond.
Elite female representative players will take part in a stand-alone State of Origin match in June and there’s plenty of work to be done by aspiring Harvey Norman Queensland Women’s representatives in the lead-up to that match.
The coaching staff were joined at the informal gathering on Saturday at Nudgee College by a number of players who able to attend and hear from the new staff.
The players also took part in a 1200m running test with the goal of measuring and maintaining their ongoing fitness with their clubs.
The female game is undergoing a transformation this year with the formation of an NRL competition, with final details of this new opportunity still yet to be finalised.
Players enjoyed a barbecue lunch after their session and a looking forward to attending their next event.
A number of these players will next assemble at Runaway Bay this week with the Australian Jillaroos, with coach Brad Donald set to select his team to take on the world at the upcoming Commonwealth Championship.
