Lions to support women's rugby

Woy Woy Rugby Club has seen a surge in female participation for the 2018 season.

"It's no secret the growth segment in Rugby Union is the women's game with our girls having won Olympic Gold in Rio and just recently in Sydney," said club president Mr Stuart McGoldrick.

"On the back of this success, rugby clubs around the country are seeing a groundswell in female participation.

"At Woy Woy Rugby Club, pre-season has a distinctly different gender make up this year with the women joining the men at training.

"It's great to see women's rugby taking off in our club, especially as so many of the girls are new to the game," he said.

The club's appetite to field a women's side was initiated during an away trip to Hornsby in 2017 where a women's game was played.

"The camaraderie, mutual respect and shared love of rugby among both the male and female players made the choice to pursue women's rugby an easy one," Mr McGoldrick said.

Club conditioning coach Mr Luke Ingold is equally impressed.

"The girls are already showing great progress.

"Most of them are fitter than male players," he said.

Anyone interested in playing with the Woy Woy Lions women's or men's teams can express interest on the Facebook page or simply show up for training at 6pm on Mondays and Thursdays at Brisbane Water Secondary College Umina campus.

No previous rugby experience is necessary.
