In the inaugural women’s representative competition, the North Coast Bulldogs had a hard-fought win against the Greater Northern Tigers.
After scoring early in the match, the Bulldogs had a tough task for the majority of the first half with a number of big hits and some uncharacteristic dropped balls.
At halftime, the Bulldogs were in front 10-0.
The second half was more free flowing and featured a close to line try for Bellingen’s Tina McRae.
In a game with a high penalty count, the Bulldogs ran away winners 22-0.
The Magpies had two representatives in the Bulldogs team, Tina McRae and Rachel Devine, who were both instrumental in the team's win. Well done to all the players involved.
