Goannas - Women


Please see below nomination form for any players who are interested in being a member of the NT Goanna’s 15-a-side Development Representative Team who will tour to Singapore to play 2 matches against Singapore in early May 2017. Please note that as this is a development team, it is more about developing players who can commit to all trainings and the team, rather than a team with just the best players.

This program is to set up a team to prepare for the 2018 Women’s 15-a-side National Championships in which the NT Goannas will compete.

Players who are new to Rugby this season are encouraged to nominate as they will be trained ready for the tour. 

Minimum requirements for selection are that players are registered with a club and are at least 18 years of age.

Trainings are Mondays 6.30pm-8.00pm at Rugby Park starting next Monday, and the team will play at the ANZAC Day clash on Saturday 22nd April against itself to prepare for the tour.
