Wallaroos and ACT Brumbies prop Peta Cox didn't play rugby until she was 18, not because she didn't want to, but because she couldn't.
In a sign of just how far women's rugby has come in the past few years, more than 100 schoolgirls were put through their paces in Canberra this week.
The ACT Brumbies and Rugby Australia held clinics at the AIS, with officials looking to unearth the next batch of Super W players.
Brumbies prop Peta Cox was on hand in the capital and the 25-year-old said she wished the clinics had been around a decade ago.
"I had nothing like this when I was younger, I didn't start playing rugby until I finished school, if I had these opportunities I imagine my skill level now would be a lot higher than it is," Cox said.
