Hunter Women’s representative coach Gerry Mason has said he would “love to see” more selection squad fixtures for his star-studded squad in the coming seasons.

The Hunter outfit had a less than stellar NSW Country Championships earlier in the year after a 10-nil upset at the hands of Central Coast pipped their hopes early.

Later in the rep season, however, Hunter shone on the biggest stage. Played out as a curtain-raiser for the Wallaroos battle against Japan, Mason’s side ran out 22-5 victors over Southern Inland’s travelling team.

The clash at No.2 Sportsground in July showed the gathered crowd one thing – there’s quality all the way from the Wallaroos to the Hunter. Mason believes it’s high time a rep expansion takes that into account.
