St George District Rugby League Football Club held the 2023 Tarsha Gale Cup Induction night in the Museum at St George Leagues Club. Patiently waiting for everyone to arrive, a short clip was being played focusing on the History of the club & club culture. It was a great night with over 100 attendees (players and families), who were beaming with excitement and awe. Once all attendees had arrived, they were greeted with a video listing all the players who had made the Tarsha Gale Cup Squad and Pathways Squad for 2023.
Michelle Anderson Head Co-Ordinator for the Women’s Pathway started the night off with a very heart-warming opening speech. Michelle named and introduced all coaching and training staff allocated to the Tarsha Gale Cup Squad for 2023.
“Culture and family are very important to success”
The program now has a direct link to the St George Illawarra NRLW. Michelle also spoke about Tarsha Gale and her career as a female rugby pioneer.
Huw Ellis, who was named as Head Coach of the squad, spoke about the focus on the team’s commitment, drive, and values as part of this the players were given the opportunity to add their own personal values. Michelle and Huw presented the squad with their training gear, for the upcoming season.
The night ended with a highlights video from their trial matches. The club wishes the players all the best for the 2023 season and looks forward to seeing them develop throughout the course of their training program.
