Jillaroos squad named for Test

There have been three Cronulla Sharks Women's Series players selected in the Harvey Norman Jillaroos squad for the upcoming Test match against the Kiwi Ferns.

Ruan Sims, Corbin McGregor and Maddi Studdon will all return to the green and gold of the Australian side and will be looking to put their best foot forward on the double-header at GIO Stadium, Canberra.

With the Women's Rugby League World Cup taking place at the end of the year, all players will be looking to impress at any opportunity they're given.

Harvey Norman Jillaroos Coach Brad Donald has named a strong squad of 25 women, ahead of the ANZAC Test Match Double Header in Canberra on Friday 5 May against the Kiwi Ferns.
 
The squad will assemble in camp on the Gold Coast tomorrow to undergo preparations, before the final team is named on Sunday 30 April.
 
Nakia Davis-Welsh debuts as part of the squad, while former Jillaroos captains Steph Hancock and Ruan Sims have also been confirmed in the squad, with both returning from injuries.
 
“The Test Match next week looms as a significant occasion for our team,” Mr Donald said.
 
“Our women had a momentous win against the Ferns in Auckland at the start of this year as part of the Nines tournament.
