The 2017 season saw the historic introduction of the Tarsha Gale Cup, an Under-18 girls junior representative competition.

Played in a nine-a-side format and alongside existing junior representative competitions (SG Ball and Harold Matthews), the Tarsha Gale Cup provided a competitive pathway for emerging female stars.  Nine teams competed and several players progressed to the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership throughout the year.

Cronulla Sharks’ Tayla Preston kicked off the competition in fine fashion with a try inside the first minute of the first game, going on to top the try-scorers’ list for the season with 17 four-pointers. Lily-Rose Bennett (Steelers), Page McGregor (Bulldogs) and Cassie Ormsby (Panthers) also featured prominently, with each side making the preliminary finals.

The Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs set the inaugural competition alight, claiming the minor premiership and losing just one match in the regular season. Going on to make the Grand Final, they came up against the in-form Panthers, with the Penrith side coming from fifth place to take a shock 26-18 victory in the decider.

Penrith’s Ashlee Harrison scored a double and was crowned Player of the Match, earning selection for Country in the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s City-Country Shield.
