Rugby League

Jodie Cunningham

I started with the Development Team at the RFL back in January of this year as the National Women & Girls development manager, since moving over from the RLWC2021 I’ve really enjoyed getting hands on in event delivery and introducing some an exciting new competition to the Women’s game with the Women’s Nines which saw York City Knights victorious in the inaugural event.

I have already had lots of opportunities to meet some really influential people in the women’s sport space and utilise their expertise and research to drive the women & girls strategy forward to create an even more welcoming environment in Rugby League for the female players across our game. All this whilst being supported fully by everyone at the RFL in my playing career with St Helens and England in what is a hugely important year for the England Women.
