Ghosts put hand up for ladies tackle competition
RUGBY LEAGUE: Group 2 Rugby League asked for expressions of interest in the second year of a ladies nine-a-side tackle competition starting in November and the Grafton Ghosts ladies team are looking likely to partake.
In just their second year as a ladies league side, coach Darrin Heron said the Ghosts girls were "very keen” for their inaugural year of the small-sided game.
"I think the Grafton Ghosts will have a side this year,” Heron said.
"Some of the girls are really interested in doing it, not all of them are but I think it's looking likely.”
"Elle (Moss) and Melkeely (Heron) are definitely keen I know that much.”
Heron said the game would be good at further developing his side in the quiet months for footy.
"It's a bit more like rugby sevens, it's a short and skilful game,” he said.
"The competition will be good to keep them fit in the off-season, most of them play oz-tag over summer anyway but this will keep them sharp.”
"It should be a good contest, all the girls have to do is learn the basics because they know the rest from league tag.”
