Bulldogs savage opposition
ROCKHAMPTON'S next generation of female touch football players is putting in the hard yards for success this season.
The Bulldogs A-grade ladies team was back at Cyril Connell touch fields yesterday morning for an extra fitness session after its commanding 8-0 win over Buckaneers (2) on Wednesday night.
It is this new-found attitude that has guided Bulldogs to an unbeaten start to the summer season and sent an ominous warning to the premiership contenders.
Fresh from an upset win over defending champions Buckaneers (1) in the opening round, Bulldogs' Greta Perkins and Courtney Williams both scored hat-tricks to maintain their team's winning run.
The youthful Bulldogs contingent will be hoping the extra training has paid off when they join the Central Queensland under-20 ladies team at this weekend's Rustlers Cup at Noosa.
Players from CQ, South West Queensland and the Sunshine Coast are chasing Queensland Country Rustlers selection for next year's National Touch League at Coffs Harbour.
