Batley Bulldogs Girls clinch historic victory down under

BATLEY BULLDOGS Girls defeated Beenleigh State High School 14-8 to claim their first victory on their Australian tour.

Tries from Evie Kilburn, Codie Slack and Charlotte Graham helped the Bulldogs Girls clinch a memorable win.

But sadly the tourists couldn’t end their trip with a second victory, in front of Channel 7 cameras.

With a lot of media attention surrounding the girls they fell short, losing 16-4 in the return fixture with Merrimac State High School, rounding off their fourth and final game of an historic tour.

In girls’ other game this week they narrowly lost out 22-12 to the district select side, Sunshine Coast Falcons.

Kilburn, Graham and Casey Rhodes were try scorers for Batley.

But as well as playing rugby the girls had the chance to relax when they visited Steve Irwin’s world-famous Australia Zoo

Batley Bulldogs’ men’s first team coach, John Kear, said: “The girls have made everyone associated with our club proud.

“It’s not easy to win a rugby match in the southern hemisphere so I would like to congratulate them on their victory in Australia.”
