Two Cobar women’s League Tag players will be vying for places with the Western Rams squad this weekend after being selected in the Group 11 side on Sunday.
Lisa Travis and Zoë Harland were two of seven Cobar players from the Cobar Roosterettes League Tag side who were invited to make the trip to Parkes on Sunday to trial for the Group 11 team.
Group 11 side selector Col Fuller said Travis and Harland had both been stand-out players and their excellent leadership skills on the field would be of great value to the Group 11 side and its younger players.
He said the Cobar girls talked well on the field directing play and combined excellently in Centre (Travis) and Link (Harland).
Both highlighted their skills in their attacking and defensive lines and were definitely stand out players on the field on Sunday.
Travis and Harland will now line up with what is mostly a CYMS and Parkes side.
The team will come together for the first time at a training session this Friday night in Dubbo and then head to Gilgandra on Saturday to play games against Group 10 and the Castlereagh Cup Representative Squad.
From there a Western Rams squad will be chosen following the games for the AAMI Country Championships tournament.
While the Cobar club recently announced it will be leaving Group 11 this season, Travis and Harland (and their team mates) who were already registered with Group 11, are still eligible to play in the competition and compete for a place in the Western Rams squad.
The squad is fed by players from all western division sides including Barwon, where the Cobar club is expected to move this season.
