Female referees to make rugby league history


//

Women are about to strike their biggest blow in over a century of rugby league with Kasey Badger and Belinda Sleeman poised to be offered full-time refereeing contracts by the NRL.

The pair have been steadily working their way through the refereeing ranks as part-timers in recent years - while holding down regular jobs.

But the NRL has been so impressed with their progress that it is now set to reward them with fulltime contracts.

It brings the pair closer to their ultimate goal - refereeing a top grade NRL match.

Both have served as touch judges in the NRL and refereed matches in the lower grades.

But the fulltime deals will bring them a step closer to making history by having the whistle in an NRL game.

Sleeman controlled a trial match between Brisbane and Wynnum earlier this year and got good reports.

Badger is back in action after a horror off season which saw her  undergo three surgeries to have a rib removed.
