RUGBY LEAGUE –

Toukley Hawks RLFC is poised to kickstart an exciting new wave of opportunities for women’s footy locally, with the club announcing that it will enter a team in the 2021 Newcastle Hunter Women’s Tackle Competition.

Club Coach, Troy Agar, said that this was huge news for the Hawks and for the wider Central Coast, with the Hawks ecstatic to be bringing more women’s tackle games to the region.

“The women’s game is growing at a fast pace and we are passionate about providing a pathway for our girls to be able to make their way to a professional level.

“The success of the Central Coast Roosters provides that pathway for our girls and we are happy to be able to foster and develop talent here at Toukley,” Agar said.

The Hawks are also expanding their offering for girls, with the club looking to also field girls tackle teams in age groups in 2021.
