THE Bega Chicks are confident they can hatch a plan to take out this year’s Group 16 ladies league tag premiership.
The Chicks started training on February 19, and if the initial response was any indication, the ladies are looking to go one better than their 4-nil defeated at the hands of Cooma in the 2012 grand final.
Fifteen ladies attended the first training session, compared to last year’s three, an indication that ladies league tag is becoming more popular.
The Chicks will boast plenty of depth in 2013, with six new players joining the team.
Boasting some of the best players in the competition, the Chicks definitely have the goods to do the job, and coach Andrew Badullovich will no doubt few tricks up his sleeve.
With the likes of try scoring machine Kezie Apps, who was named the Group 16 ladies league tag top scorer in 2012, and captain and Australian representative Trudi Badullovich, the Chicks has plenty of fire-power and speed to burn.
The Badullovichs worked hard to form the Chick’s team last season, and were pleased to have made the grand final in their debut year.
“We’re ecstatic with the amount of players at training, and overwhelmed with the amount of new starters in the team,” Andrew said.
“The girls are excited about their second season in the competition, and are looking to raise the bar and take it to the next level by winning this year’s premiership.
“The players are committed to work hard, and Kezie has already been working on her kicking game. Those who remember last season will know that this ‘chick’ has the football on a string and it very exciting to watch.”
The Chicks train from 6pm to 7pm on Tuesday and Thursday nights at the Bega primary school fields.
If there are any girls over the age of 15 that are interested in joining the side, please feel free to venture to training, or contact Andrew Badullovich on 0414 389 478.
