ANGELA Powers presented the aims of the Her Rugby League Association at the latest Saints Business Networking Player of the Month event – sponsored by Oval Broking Insurance Ltd.
The Sky Sports presenter told delegates that the objectives of the new body were simple – to promote the game of rugby league by highlighting one of its greatest assets – its women.
It is believed that on matchday up to 40 per cent of the crowd is made up of women and children and behind the scenes, especially at community level, clubs rely on an army of women to sell, manage, organise and promote the sport.
Dave Hutchinson, Head of Sales and Marketing at Saints said: “Angela delivered a really insightful presentation on Her RLA and its plans for the future. The attendees were fascinated with the progress the Association has made in such a short space of time.
“The event was once again populated by business and people from a wide range of organisations and it is clear they continue to see it as an excellent way of enhancing their development. If your business wants to get involved and share its success and best practice at the event then don’t hesitiate to get in touch.”
Sia Soliola was awarded the Player of the Month award for May after his superb performances both on and off the field.
The next event will be at the end of June and if you want to be involved you can contact Dave on [email protected] or call 01744 455061.
