Former Bear Set to Captain Australia For Last Time

Steph Hancock will co-captain the Jillaroos in the Rugby League World Cup.

Former Browns Plains Bear Steph Hancock has had a stellar Rugby League career but before she hangs up the jersey she’ll lace on the boots for one more challenge. The Rugby League World Cup. 

Steph previously played for the Mighty Browns Plains Bears in the women’s league back in 2011. 

Although she comes from humble origins, her skills have taken her to the pinnacle of Rugby League and back again. 

The Jillaroos will kick off their World Cup campaign against Cook Islands on Thursday November 16 in Sydney.

They will also meet Canada and England before finals commence in late November.
