    Default Saint's Ladies

    I see that Leeds are to start to make payments to their Ladies team - not salaried, but payments nevertheless.
    I thought Warrington may have been the first to do this, but credit to Leeds.
    I hope we can find a way to follow suit; I know times are tough financially for many people, but maybe a 25 supplement on season tickets?
    Our ladies have brought lots of success - and entertainment - to the club and I, for one, would hate to see our Ladies squad start to break up

    Its probably come at the right time as they look and play like professionals especially the Leeds, York and Saints teams, I think we get free ladies matches on our season tickets for me I,m willing to pay a fiver instead of a free entry. Our club image is looking great at the moment its not all about the first team.

    The whole club first team, ladies team and academy are fantastic in how they wear the badge with pride, the saints ladies in particular seem to sacrifice any spare team they have to play for us.

    It's good to see, but incredibly vague from Leeds. They will make some payments, but keen to stress it's not a salary. It's very odd and I'd be all over that if I were a tax inspector.

    Having said that, Saints need to keep pace with whatever this is. The women's game is a massive growth area and so is girl's rugby at junior level.

    Well it's a novel way to top up Lisone's salary by paying his Mrs in the women's team...

    In all seriousness though, seems like a good step forward. Hopefully others will be following suit, I can't imagine Saints, York or Wire will be too far behind. Clubs like Cas who have cut as much as possible while others go the opposite way are going to find it very difficult to catch back up.

    Thought the documetary "Women of Steel" last night was quite absorbing, respect to them for their committment and trying to juggle their everyday life at the same time.
