THOUGHTS ON & EXPERIENCE PLAYING WITH KOKOMOS WOMENS IN QPICC 2016:
It’s an experience like no other. To see it start in 2015 with a bunch of women who had never played to last year’s event, I can say the experience was greater because we kept some (more experienced teams) on their feet.
THOUGHTS ON QLD PNG RUGBY LEAGUE ORGANISATION: I believe they are doing the best job they can with the amount of young teens, Men & Women involved here. Can honestly say I appreciate the opportunity they have created for all of us to continue playing.
