Jillaroos take on Canada today in women’s Rugby League World Cup
CAITLIN Moran and Nakia Davis-Welsh have been rotated out of the Jillaroos team to take on Canada this afternoon in the final pool game at the women’s Rugby League World Cup. Maddie Studdon will get a chance to impress in the No 7 jersey with Moran not named in coach Brad Donald’s 17 for the game at Endeavour Field, in Sydney’s south. Moran and Davis-Welsh are two of four Indigenous players in Australia’s World Cup squad – the others being Rebecca Young and Lavina O’Mealey. Moran all but locked down the halfback spot after starring in the Jillaroos’ 38-0 demolition of England last Sunday. In just her second game at No 7, Moran and halves partner Ali Brigginshaw combined to pilot the reigning world champions to a convincing win over England at Endeavour Field.
