Dragons NRLW coach Daniel Lacey pulled in a heavy hitter as his side looks to bounce from a tough first-up loss to Brisbane, with women’s league legend Tarsha Gale addressing the squad this week
The former Bulli Eagle and inaugural NSW skipper shared some valuable wisdom with the Dragons girls ahead of their clash with the Warriors on Saturday.
“I was very fortunate to be invited by Daniel Lacey to come and talk to the girls and share a little bit about the history of women’s rugby league and a little bit about my journey,” Gale said.
“I was the little sister [of two brothers] so I had to learn the skills of rugby league if I wanted to be included. It was so lucky there was a competition down in Wollongong, the coach saw me playing touch and said come on down and I never looked back from there.
“The fact that a couple of these girls have come through the Tarsha Gale Cup is something I’m really proud of and it shows those pathways are really working.”
