Seagals seek new recruits

YEPPOON Seagulls Women's Rugby League team is on the lookout for some new recruits to fill the remaining spots to help spearhead its campaign in the 2018 Rockhampton Rugby League women's competition.

Seagulls spokesman Scott Minto said with the season fast approaching, the side has the makings of a strong outfit, however they needed to attract some more players to provide the numbers needed to cover the full season ahead.

"To date the club has around 15 players committed to play in the ladies competition, which is a fine beginning for the season,” Mr Minto said.

"To be competive throughout the season we really need 23 players to ensure the team's success.

"This is an exciting competition to be part of, you need no former experience, if you are keen I highly recommend giving it a go.”

Dubbed the 'Seagals' by the playing group, Mr Minto said they were sure to entertain the crowds that flocked through the gates to watch them play.

"The girls are set to get going when they play in their first trial match coming up on February 24 at Webb Oval against the Blackwater Crushettes,” he said.

"That gives us three weeks to train, sign up new members and get ready to launch into the season.”

Coached by the well-respected Margie Grant, the girls are enjoying their first pre-season together and the signs are positive.

For any women seeking to be part of this exciting women's rugby league team in 2018, please call Margie on 0438141618 to register your interest.
