The Canberra Raiders celebrated the NRL's Women in League Round last Sunday afternoon against the Penrith Panthers.

The game-wide initiative was dedicated to recognising the genuine and ongoing essential role that women play in Rugby League, from female players, members, supporters, mums, partners, volunteers, cheer squad members and administrators - to directors, office staff, fitness trainers, referees and officials.
