2023 Under 16 Schoolgirls Squad Announcement

NRL WA would like to congratulate the following players who have made the final extended squad for the Under 16s Schoolgirl team, who will compete at the U16 Australian National Championships.

The championships will take place at Port Macquarie, from Friday 22nd September to Friday 29th September.

The coaches and selectors had to make some very tough decisions and although this will be the final list of 24, only 20 players will be touring this year. With the ongoing competitions and injuries still very prominent, the squad is encompassing those scenarios.


Wednesday 2nd August – 5.45pm – 7.30pm – Hartfield Park, Forrestfield (Kalamunda Bulldogs RLC)
Monday 7th August – 6.00pm – 7.30pm –Treeby Sports Complex (Fremantle Roosters RLC)

Over the coming days, we will finalize training sessions moving forward, with timings and venues to hopefully suit club commitments of our players.
