Maranoa Magic & South West Women & Girls Rugby League was established in November 2011 to provide girls aged between 12 to 18 years the opportunity to play rugby league. In the past, once a girl was over 12 years of age, they were unable to continue playing rugby league unless they travelled to places like Toowoomba or Brisbane if they wished to play.
