Eighteen girls aged between 10-16 recently participated in a Development Day at Callendar Park hosted by Innisfail Brothers Junior Rugby League in collaboration with NRL and QRL.
The morning was run by Alby Anderson (Game Development Officer), Atul Chowdhary and William Kennedy from NRL Development, along with David Gampe from QRL.
Girls were put through their paces with a range of fun activities, warm up stretches and training drills to build on improving fundamental rugby league skills such as catch, pass, carry and tackle.
After the intensive session, participants ensured they re-hydrated and enjoyed fresh fruit for morning tea.
The team are looking to run another Girls Development Day in Innisfail in November.
Any girls interested in playing rugby league in 2020 can contact their local junior league club for further information.
