Behind every strong man is an even stronger woman

On July 21st, when the Sydney Roosters ran out onto the pitch for their game against the Newcastle Knights, each player was wearing a very special jersey. 
On that night, where the Steggles logo usually proudly sits, each Roosters jersey featured the name of the woman who has played the most significant role in that player’s life.
Some players choose to honour their mother, some their grandmother, and others their wife or partner. 
To recognise and reward the crucial roles these women have played, and continue to play, in shaping the lives of these young athletes, join us in celebrating the true legends of the game: the women in league.
