WE NEED YOU | Women's Rugby League History

There’s never been a time more exciting in the history of women’s Rugby League… and this year will be bigger and better than ever.

With the ongoing success of the Harvey Norman Tarsha Gale Cup and Women’s Premiership competitions, and our reigning champions the NSW Women’s side, the future is bright… and as part of this growth we’d like to shine a light on those pioneers of the female game from years past, too.

The NSWRL is assembling an official list of players past and present who have represented the state since 1999, similar to our list of men’s True Blues, but we are missing some vital elements and we are calling on the public to provide assistance.

The NSWRL has a list of most women’s teams that have pulled on the sky blue of this great state since 1999, but we are missing some key information… including the sides that ran out in Interstate Challenge matches in 2000, 2004 and 2007.

Know something we don’t? Can you help us fill in the blanks? Email us your information to help us fill in the vital pieces of NSW women’s Rugby League history.

The full list of female players to represent NSW from 1999, as the NSWRL has it currently, is as follows:
