And, of course, back in 1993, Sophie scored a try at Wembley in a CC Final curtain-raiser. She was the first female RL player to play at Wembley.

Putting my pedant hat on, She was one of the first 26. If she was the first, that would have made scoring the try a lot easier! :laugh:

Borrowing your pedant hat, she was the first, as all the other players in the two teams were boys. The BBC even showed her try.
