Nine Jillaroos have today been named in the NSW side to take on Queensland in the Women’s Interstate Challenge on Saturday, 23 July.
The team will aim to put an end to Queensland’s stranglehold of the Nellie Doherty Cup. Queensland had won the trophy 16 consecutive times until 2014, before retaining it with a 4-all draw last year.
The 2016 Women’s Interstate Challenge will take place at 3pm Saturday at CBUS Super Stadium as part of a triple-header, also including the Holden Cup and NRL clashes between the Gold Coast Titans and Parramatta Eels. It will be livestreamed on NRL.com before being broadcast on Fox Sports on Sunday.
