Women watch and love Rugby League. However, the days of a woman 'merely' selling soup and pies have gone. There is a growing number who are making their presence felt. One such lady is Angela Powers. She is a Sky sports editor and was our guest last Tuesday.

Angela's introduction to the game will sound familiar to most of us – she went to a match with her family and was hooked! The match in question was the 1990 Challenge Cup Final between Warrington and Wigan. And Angela became a passionate fan of the lesser of two evils!! [She told how her uncle threw his glasses at the referee. Wembley Stadium kindly returned them a few days later – his name was in the case.]

Not only did Angela start supporting Warrington, but she also became a staunch advocate for Rugby League. After becoming employed by Radio Manchester, she pestered them until she succeeded to have more coverage of our great game.

Taking the bull by the horns, Angela sought out the Sky team when Warrington v St Helens was being televised. A few months later they offered her a job.

Rugby League, as we all know, is a family sport, but women are an untapped resource. They are normal people who somehow like watching hulked-up with cauliflower ears! "That's why I'm currently promoting the Women's Rugby League Association. If a woman can run Rugby League's World Cup [Sally Bolton], then they should no longer be ignored."

After an entertaining question and answer session, Mick Beevers thanked Angela for a most enjoyable and informative evening. And, being a hardened Wire lass, she did seem genuinely pleased with her 'honorary membership of HGSA' certificate presented by Dave Calverley.
