NRL women's comp goes from strength to strength
The inaugural NRL women's premiership is all set to launch in September.
One of the pioneering teams will be the NZ Warriors.
In terms of finding talent, scouts wouldn't need to go much further than the Auckland women's premiership grand final which turned out to be a titanic encounter between Manurewa and Richmond.
Veteran player for Manurewa Sarina Fiso returned to play for the final after having her third child, who she says, is now three months old.
"It was pretty tough to come in after having a baby your body is saying one thing and your head is saying a different thing. But it was great to get out with the girls."
But the focus now is for the players in the four NRL teams.
Some players have already been approached including Fiso who was last year named Woman Player of the Year.
"Yes a club has approached me over in Aussie, but I haven't made a decision yet. To all the girls taking part in the NRL competition all the best and good luck for that."
Players for the Women's New Zealand Warriors will be finalised today.
