Four years ago rugby league coaches Glenn Swailes and Dean Gledhill started a girls section at East Leeds ARLFC. They began with just 8 girls at U13s. In this short time, they have managed to grow the female section from those 8 girls to over 60 female players this season, playing in 5 separate teams
Hunslet Warriors v East Leeds – this was a much anticipated fixture, as much for the Hunslet players as the coaching staff. With the local council closing all their pitches the Hunslet coaches worked tirelessly for 3 hours to get this fixture playable. Luckily they just managed to pull it off. Now for the game.
