ALL Saints Liverpool Junior Rugby League Club, one of the oldest and proudest in the city, is tackling a new field in 2013 with a women's team.
"If we can get the team up and running, it would be the first time a women's team will represent our club," All Saints Liverpool president Roy Perre said.
Girls can play rugby league until they are 12 in boys' teams.
But when 13, they must play in a competition with their own gender.
The Sydney Metro Women's Rugby League runs the competition.
Perre said they need 15 girls'/women's players to to pull on the footy boots and club jerseys to make it all happen.
"From my point of view I would love to see the team formed," Perre said.
Perre, of Prestons, also wants to seen club return to his halcyon days.
Since 1972 many players have represented and trained at the club's home ground, Hillier Oval.
After a tough 2012, where All Saints only had three junior teams and an A grade side in the senior competitions, things have turned around.
"During the off-season the committee recruited strongly and we expect to have nine junior age sides and three A-grade teams this season," he said.
"We delivered flyers to hundreds and hundreds of homes, advertised and also canvassed the local schools."
Perre said they will have junior age teams in the under-6s, 7s, 8s, 10s, 12s, 13s, 14s, 15, and 16 age groups.
All Saints play in the Western Suburbs Junior Rugby League and the competitions begin on Saturday, April 6. Training for the women is Tuesday and Thursday, Hillier Oval, 6.30pm.
