REDLANDS Rugby League Club is looking for players for their U13, U15 and U18 teams.

Club spokeswoman Nina Lofipo said the more girls at the club, the better.

The club held a “come and try" day on Saturday, February 4, which was attended by former State of Origin player and test coach Adrian Vowles.

Lofipo said Vowles was head coach of the Queensland Women's Rugby League team, former assistant coach for the Australian Jillaroos captained the North Queensland Cowboys in the NRL.

She said NRL development team members and coaches ran skills and drills for the girls.

“They had a great group of girls, all ages, participate Saturday who will definitely take away with them skills and techniques they can use in the upcoming season,’’ Lofipo said.

“Girls rugby league is taking off around the country and having days like the one held at Redlands gives girls in the area the opportunity to get involved.’’

Lofipo said Redlands had their first U14 girls side in the south east Queensland competition last year.

They were lead by coach Andrew “Brownie’’ Brown and were runners-up in the grand final.

“Redland's goal for girls league this year is to get as many girls registered as possible, enabling them to enter a team in each age division,’’ she said.

“Many of the girls who attended Saturday's session had never played rugby league before.

“They all walked away excited and ready to sign up. If you think rugby league is something you would like to have a go at, Redlands Rugby League Club are waiting for you.’’
