The Macleay Valley Under 17s rugby league team are gearing up for their final game of the season against the port Sharks in Wauchope this weekend.
It's been the first year of the North Coast Women's Rugby League 11s competition, and while the under 17s have done quite well, with only two losses to their name, coach Milly Blair says the growth of the game, and the player's skill is far impressive than focussing on wins and losses.
"The girls have been unbelievable, to see the growth of their skills over the last few weeks has been great," she said.
"The competition was developed to help grow women's tackle football on the Mid North Coast, and I think the first year has been very successful."
The competition was only short, with seven rounds total, but that didn't stop a record number of players signing up to participate.
The Macleay area especially had a heavy level of participation this season with Macleay Valley putting forward two teams in the 15's, one in 17's and an opens side.
"I'm hoping this isn't the last we see of women's tackle football on the Mid North Coast," Milly said.
"I would definitely like to see the competition back next year, especially in our Macleay Valley, we have a lot of talented young men playing the sport, but I think this year has shown us we also have a lot of talented young women."
NSW State of Origin representative and NSWRL women's participation officer Kylie Hilder is one of the pioneers behind the North Coast Women's Rugby League 11s competition after an initial expectation of a nines style tournament during discussions last year.
Group Three Rugby League clubs are currently looking at ways to incorporate a women's tackle competition into the season-proper next year.
