Women are needed in the club this year for an exciting new sport, a League tag team comp.

The women’s league tag is similar to Oztag, with many of the same play rules as Rugby League.

This new sport gives local women a chance to give a new sport a go, and be a part of something fun, fast paced and exciting.

Junior grades are also still open for players across all grades from six years old to 17 years.

Mallabula Panthers committee member Kellie Thompson told News Of The Area, “We are excited for another successful season for the Panthers, and would love to have some new faces join us.”

“We are a family and community-minded club with great facilities and the best sponsors.”

“We look after our players, and always have fun,” she said.

The Mallabula Panthers are based at the Mallabula sporting complex and will play mainly Saturday afternoons.

The competition starts the weekend of 1 April.

The team is coached by retired NRL Canberra Raiders player, Terry Martin.

Interested players can contact Bryan on 0409452887.

News Of The Area are now covering the Tilligerry Peninsula, and are looking forward to following the Mallabula Panthers this season, and sharing their season highlights with the community.
