CORRIMAL continued their undefeated season with a 36-0 win over previously unbeaten Canberra premiers, Queanbyan, on Sunday.

It ensures they’ll head off on their tour of Canada as Country Rugby League’s best women’s side.

They’ll feature on the global stage when they make the trip to Vancouver next month to take on the Canadian women's Test side in what will be a vital warm-up game for the Ravens ahead of November’s World Cup.

The players have self-funded what is a groundbreaking tour for the game and have had to make all the arrangements themselves.

It’s a bold vision for the game and the players could really use a push along with funding for the trip to help cover all the travel, insurance and general costs that go with such a tour.

The girls have set up a Go Fund Me campaign to help ease the burden. Kick-off encourages all Illawarra league-lovers to click on the above link and make a contribution. Every bit helps.
