RLC seeks new women’s teams

The Co-operative Rugby League Conference is seeking applications from Women’s teams for the 2011 season.

The competition follows the successful format of the men’s RLC with games being played in geographical pools before two-tier play-offs determine the winners of the Championship and the Plate competitions. Kicking off in May, the Grand Finals take place in August.

Organised centrally by the Rugby Football League, the league is administrated through the full time staff at Community Game Services with teams receiving a free allocation of training equipment.

Match Officials are appointed and paid for centrally for all games and clubs travelling long distances may also qualify for support with the costs of transport.

Since its inception in 2008, the Women’s RLC has been extremely competitive, with new names added to the trophies each season.

“We’ve enjoyed each of the seasons” confirms Debbie Drake, a player with Coventry Bears who lifted the RLC Plate in 2010

“The RLC is the perfect competition for us, giving us the opportunity to play games locally before going on to test ourselves against teams from around the country. Our team have gone from strength to strength over the years and already at this point of the year the team are excited about the 2011 season.”

Teams interested in entering the Womens RLC should contact Donna Sladdin at Community Game Services by email on donna.sladdin@rfl.uk.com or by telephone 01484 481 043.
