Featuring players from all across western Victoria, the 35-strong squad features eighteen players from last year’s GWV Rebels U18 Girls squad, including 8 Futures players from the 2018 season and 9 players new to the Rebels in 2019.
The U18 Girls competition initially launched in 2017 as a five-game season and has expanded to nine games in 2018 & 2019 with 3 futures curtain raisers as highlights in the first 6 rounds.
“We’ve selected a squad with a great balance of experience and talent”, said GWV Rebels Female Talent Coordinator Krista Woodroffe.
“Our girls have been training since mid-November under the guidance of our coaching panel and fitness staff, and we’re confident that we’ll field a competitive side in each of our nine U18 Girls games”.
The squad will be led by a six-person leadership group which will later be announced.
“All six of our leaders have been selected by a player vote, which is due to be announced Wednesday night at training.
The squad has come together under match play conditions in recent weeks as training numbers were trimmed to the final 35 players selected, with impressive on-field results.
“We’ve had some solid hit outs, with two intra-club trial games and a competitive game against the Geelong Falcons Futures and U18 squads over the weekend, so the girls are definitely looking forward to Round 1 this weekend”.
The GWV Rebels start their season this Saturday at RAMS Arena, against the Bendigo Pioneers starting at 11am.
