After a warm welcome each player gave details of their background and how they stated playing the game. They then went on to discuss how they arrived at Castleford, how they found

training facilities and the match day atmosphere at the Jungle.

The enthusiasm and passion for the game came across in leaps and bounds and it was very evident that the team spirit was first class.

Further discussions were about personal goals, the women's game in general and the forthcoming women's world cup in 2021.

The issue of full time players was discussed and how the England team can compete with the Australian and New Zealand teams.

The Challenge Cup loss to Leeds was discussed in detail and lessons from the game were taken on board by all the squad.

The audience wished the players all the best for the rest of the season as they look to pick up some silverware.

Rhiannion, Shona, Meganne, Tara, Kelsey and Lacey were thanked and £141.50 raised on the night.
