RUGBY LEAGUE: The 2017 Adrian Vowles Cup held in Charleville over the weekend was another huge success with nine under-14 teams, six under-16 teams and two girls teams all vying for the chance to take home the prestigious Adrian Vowles Cup.

For Maranoa Magic girls Reeghyn Beardmore, Brittney Smith, Coby Tzvetkoff, Taylor Mcdougall, Layla Fraser and Bella Widgell-Williams, they knew that the Charleville girls were going to be tough, especially playing at their home grounds.

But this didn't deter them from showing the boys that girls can play hard tough games of rugby league as well.

The level of skill displayed by the girls with every run of the ball to every tackle, was not missed by the crowd who came to watch the girls play.

In the end the Magic's experience prevailed, seeing them take out the first game 24-0, then back this up to take out the second game 24-0.

From this carnival, the Maranoa Magic are hoping more girls will have a go at rugby league, even if they haven't played before.

To support women and girls in rugby league, the Magic will hold a rugby league development camp on March 27-29 in Mitchell. The camp will be open to all girls over the age of 13 to complete their league safe, referees and mini mod coaches courses.
