We versed majority of the teams that participated as well in the gala day and making us the undefeated team in our pool and letting us go through into the grand final but unfortunately we lost to MSJ who were also undefeated in their pool as well. Overall we were the 2017 runners up.
Even with the rainy and cold weather we still pulled through as a team.Thank you to Mr Gough and Mr Conroy for attending the gala day with us and for giving us some advice on how we could improve on our skills and giving us support.

Women’s Rugby League World Cup
On Wednesday the 22nd Of November, myself and other students of Bethany College in grades 7 to 11, were given the opportunity to represent the school in a Gala Day where we participated in several games of League Touch Football and we were fortunate enough to watch 2 games of The Women’s Rugby League World Cup. The day started off with heavy rain but as we arrived at Woolooware Park in Cronulla the sky cleared up enough to play League Touch. Participating in this sport was a special honour to me and several other students as were new to the rules and this type of sport but being experienced in playing normal Touch Football really came in hand when playing. Once the games were finished we headed to the Sharkies Cronulla RLFC Stadium where we watched England vs Cook Islands and Australia vs Canada. Both games were extremely entertaining and thrilling. The Cook Islands beat England 22-16, but the more remarkable game was Australia vs Canada as they pulled off a thrashing score winning 88-0. The atmosphere of the stadium was incredible, there was delicious food to eat, staff handing out free signs to hold up during the game and it was just buzzing with positive and energetic vibes as these women from different parts of the world really played their hearts out. To conclude, on behalf of myself and the Bethany College girls that attended, we will like to thank the teachers that gave us this once in a lifetime opportunity as we will cherish the memories forever.
