Dewsbury Rams will host a festival of girls rugby league next Saturday (November 26) to coincide with their plans to start a women’s team.
The main event will see Yorkshire Girls West Under-16s take on Batley Bulldogs Girls, while there will also be an Under-12s round robin tournament involving Dewsbury Moor, Batley, Fryston and Illingworth.
Dewsbury Moor players Charlotte Graham, Georgia Roach, Maddison Laverick, Jessica Day and Lacie Bruines have been selected in the Yorkshire Girls West side, alongside Shaw Cross Sharks players Amila Hudson, Erin Webb, Olivia Sharpe, Megan Griffith and Cody Randell and Dewsbury Celtic’s Abbie Newsome.
Players from teams in Calderdale and Bradford, including Illingworth, West Bowling and Queensbury, have also been selected to play against the all conquering and unbeaten Batley Bulldogs Under-16s.
The Under-16s game kicks off at 10.30am and admission is £3 for adults, with children admitted free, and proceeds will go towards the running costs of the day.
The Rams will also be promoting the development of a women’s section at the event.
The Rams also invite any females interested in joining to taster sessions, which will be held at the club on Saturday December 10 and Saturday January 14 between 10.30am to noon.

Dewsbury Moor Under-12s ended their season in style with victories over Batley and Fryston.
Moor recorded a 62-6 derby victory over Batley under the floodlights at Ossett Trinity in their penultimate match.
The opening 10 minutes were closely fought with good attack and defence from both teams before Ruby Enright opened the scoring with a try that she converted.
Mia Diskin and Gabrielle Akaidere added further tries, which Enright improved, as Moor led 18-0 at half-time.
Tiegan Ramsdan and Diskin added early second half tries, while Enright crossed twice and added three more goals for a 40-0 lead.
Olivia Kirby replied with a try for Batley, converted by Courtney Gooch, but Moor responded with further tries from Mya Enright, Ruby Enright, Diskin and a spectacular length of the field effort by Akaidere. Enright added three more goals to complete the win.
There was great support from Nancy Hirst, along with Summer Rothey, Daneka Massey, Paige Lister, Amy Hirst, Lydia Day, Ella Hemmingway, Mary Marsden, Nieve Audsley, Emma Crowe, Molly Hinchcliffe and Millie Lyons as the team were awarded players of the match.
Moor ended the season with a 48-14 victory over a Fryston, who scored two quick tries.
Moor hit back when Hirst, Ramsden and Diskin combined for Ruby Enright to score a try, which she goaled.
Further tries from Diskin, Ruby Enright (two), Hirst, Akaidere and Ramsden (two), all converted by Enright, sealed victory.
