The 2013 World Cup wasn't just a big result for the Jillaroos, it was a pivotal moment for the women's game. 

Women's rugby league has exploded in popularity ever since with the NRL Auckland Nines, new pathways created and more regular exposure bringing the evolution of the game into the mainstream.

Do you mean the U14s and U16s? It hasn't started yet. Probably next year. OZ juniors play mixed gender teams up to U12s. Most of the girls probably move on to Touch until they're 17 then the Sydney Women's League

Canberra is also making progress in women's rugby league. They are developing both contact and non-contact high level treams linked to established senior clubs.

Considering how small the overall player pool is the standard of this game is incredible.

Just started watching this, thanks to Across The Tasman, and it is a blood'n'thunder encounter so far.

 

Ruan Sims looks like she's bulked up a bit, not that she wasn't a very physical player already.

The physicality of that game was incredible. It was a brilliant advert for the womens game.

This is the first time I've seen them play a full-length, 13-a-side test, but they just produce a great spectacle again and again, whether it is in Nines or regular RL.

Just finished watching - a cracking encounter from kickoff to hooter.

The skills and physicality at this stage of the women's game is amazing - can't wait to see Wales and France and England join in but as ever the southern have raced ahead. Well done to the ferns

Fisa and Apps (NZ & Aus respectively) put in eye-catching performances, but it's hard to find a player who didn't contribute something great to the test match.
