Q&A: Wallaroos veteran Ash Hewson talks Super W & the future of women’s rugby

Wallaroos veteran Ash Hewson has experienced just about everything possible in women’s rugby during her 10 year career, but even she admitted she never thought she’d get a chance to play in a domestic female competition.  Ahead of the opening round of the inaugural Super W competition, we caught up with Hewson to get the latest of her NSW side’s preparation and chat about the potential of women’s rugby in Australia.  How are you feeling ahead of the start of the inaugural Super W competition this weekend?  We’re all really excited at the moment, I honestly never thought this day would come. To be honest, ever since I started playing I’ve always known that the talent is there and that it would be a marketable product but obviously due to financial constraints and the inequality of sport at the time, it just never seemed like it would happen. The shift in sport, particularly women’s sport has certainly paved the way for this to be possible, so it’s amazing.
