Golden glow about Warringah’s Ratettes as Dalton, Green and Williams sign up

By MARK CASHMAN

The Warringah Ratettes will have a golden glow about them on Saturday when they take on Eastern Suburbs at Pittwater Rugby Park.

Three members of the gold medal winning Australia sevens side from Rio, Chloe Dalton and Elia Green will turn out for the Ratettes along with the well-credentialed Wallaroo and Rio skipper Sharnie Williams.

The game against the Beasties Ladies will kick off at 4.40pm, shortly after the finish of the men’s Shute Shield encounter.

Ironically the national women’s sevens team would have been in Tokyo this week attempting to defend their gold medal, but obviously the Covid-19 pandemic came into play.

Their appearance at Rat Park this weekend is nice outcome from that pandemic sandwich we are all working our through and obviously a great experience for some of the up and coming players in the Ratettes and the Beasts.
