It was an absolute pleasure Gillian. Your daughter is a talent and an absolute delight!

New winter training facility is a game changer for Abbey Willcox

Dave, does that include Lauren and Mahalia? Who am I missing? ????

Sharni Williams recommits to sevens ahead of Tokyo Olympics

That’s right, James. Given the 7s women do not have any games at the moment, it is a great opportunity to get some game time, meet some incredible women and potentially learn some new skills.

I am loving seeing them play in the NRLW too. All three killed it last weekend!

Thank both for your support. I’ve been doing as much coverage of women’s sport this year as possible, but they do tend to have less engagement. I also wonder whether because this is a ‘feel good’ story, it may get less comments? When I write opinion pieces on more divisive topics, they are the ones that tend to go viral.

Absolute superstars!

They sure can! Rugby league is just borrowing them for a little while.

Oh my goodness, Stu, YOU WERE THERE? Did you get tickets randomly in the ballet? Oh what a wonderful memory and glad it is still such a fond sporting memory for you.

Thanks Paul! I hope she gets a chance to show us what she can do – she had such a brilliant WBBL last year and hopefully that good form continues.

Insidious content? Wow.

Melissa King hopes to leave a legacy through the FIBA Women's World Cup

Landcruiser, I’m confused? It would be good to understand why you think this is a political article?

Melissa King has just been appointed CEO of the LOC for the FIBA Women’s Basketball World Cup and I was interested in hearing her vision for the event.

My pleasure, James! I also had the chance to speak to Jemima Montag last week and she is another incredible athlete.

I can’t wait to (fingers crossed) cheer them both on at Tokyo!

An Australian record and getting engaged all part of a big year for Jessica Hull

Thanks Josh!

What I found really interesting was that at Rio, mixed gender became compulsory in the open sailing category. In most mixed teams, the male looks after the physical side of it and the female looks after tactics. Lisa and Josh actually do it the other way round which I found very inspiring.

Thanks for sharing that TIgertown.
Jemima also shared some of her family history with me in the conversation we had too. Her grandparents on her dad’s side were both holocaust survivors and met years after surviving Auschwitz. Her connection to her family is really strong.

One step at a time towards Jemima Montag's Tokyo dream

Interested enough to click on the article though which I find fascinating.

Why have the ICC postponed the Women’s Cricket World Cup 2021?

Thanks for your support, Alex! Stephanie was very inspiring and I’m glad that I was given a chance to cover the sport you love!

Stephanie Sang's kids inspire return to elite table tennis

Because the women’s game is in a position of growth – you would hope that all countries would work together for the betterment of cricket and so the quality and standard improves and so more players have the chance to be professional.

Women's IPL a squandered opportunity

How is it the same?

So glad your daughter enjoyed it as much as I did, Terry! She is the future!!

Paul, I wondered about the financial point. I’m not across how much money India puts into the women’s game, but I would be interested to understand how much they will play players to compete in this WIPL.

Couldn’t agree more, Rob!

Thanks for taking the time to read!

Surf Life Saving Australia celebrates 40 years of women

Jacko, it’s clear you have no understanding of the women’s game or why it was structured the way it was.

Addin Fonua-Blake's 'punishment' doesn't go far enough

And good to know that people are able to say whatever they like in ‘the heat of the moment’ and then apologise and it makes it all ok.

It’s a man’s game?

The WNRL wants a word.

Since when did asking for people to be treated with respect become ‘precious’.
