First female NRL referee is ready to realise her dream

The NRL’s first female referee, Belinda Sharpe, has spoken with the media ahead of her trailblazing debut.

After six year experience refereeing Queensland Cup, Women’s Origin, and running the sidelines as a touch judge in the NRL, Sharpe is finally getting the opportunity to realise her dream of officiating an NRL match out in the middle.

She’ll be in the cauldron of Thursday night football in the Broncos-Bulldogs match.
