Tarsha Gale Cup - Grand Final
Penrith Panthers v Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs
Leichardt Oval, Saturday 6th May @ 12:45pm
The Panthers will compete in the Grand Final of the inaugural Tarsha Gale Cup when they take on Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs at Leichardt Oval on Saturday.
The Panthers finished the regular season in fifth, sealing their spot in the decider the hard way following a hat trick of sudden-death wins, capped off by a closely fought 32-28 victory over the Steelers last Saturday. Emily Perring and Cassie Ormsby led the way, crossing over for two tries apiece.
They will meet the Bulldogs in the final following their victory over the Sharks by the same scoreline.
Revenge will be on the cards for the Panthers after they suffered a humbling 40-10 defeat at the hands of this weekend’s opponents back in Round Four. The Bulldogs ran in eight tries to two in a dominant display.
The Tarsha Gale Cup is a female under 18s nine-a-side competition conducted as part of the NSWRL Junior Representative program, played in conjunction with Harold Matthews and SG Ball fixtures.
Named after former Australian and NSW captain Tarsha Gale, the tournament continues the NSWRL push towards an elite female league.
