The Cronulla Sharks have visited Marton Public School with the Women’s Rugby League World Cup Trophy and Cronulla Sharks Women’s Series and Australian Jillaroos forward Talesha Quinn.
Hosting the Women’s World Cup at Southern Cross Group Stadium in November, the Sharks will be visiting a number of schools across the Shire in the coming weeks, using these engagements to promote the female Rugby League pathway and inclusivity in sport.
Along with the ‘Adopt a Country’ program, schools will also be given the opportunity to participate in the World Cup Gala Girls Competition as well as the Stadium Experience.
These would not only involve the students participating in Rugby League and League Touch games, but provide them with the opportunity to take part in all of the fun of the Opening Ceremony and parades on the field, form guards of honour for the players to run through, as well as many other fun activations around the stadium that day.
Jillaroos forward Talesha Quinn was full of excitement as she spoke to the enthusiastic youngsters.
“It was great to come out and see all the kids smiling faces,” said Quinn.
“They’re all so excited and hopefully we can get them all down there to support us for the World Cup.”
Schools can register to be involved in the Women’s World Cup through either the all-girls gala days or game day experience by registering here.
