The meaning behind #CasGirlsCan

Posted: Thursday 23rd January 2020 - 3:49 PM

When the players returned from their winter break, one of the main things discussed in the inaugural team meeting was the ambition for 2020 and beyond. 

And while hopes of major on-field success are undoubtedly still on the radar, the main goal for the Tigresses will be to inspire the next generation.

Speaking about the move, Anfield said: "Obviously you've got to look at silverware but, we're going to have a big push this year on inspiring the next generation of the girls in Castleford. That's going to be our main focus. 

"One of the ways to do that is to win games and play entertaining rugby. That's something we've tried to do. We want to get as many girls as possible through the gates watching us. There is a need in the community to have some genuine female role models and I think our girls can fill that role." 

The Tigresses have been heavily involved with community clubs throughout the last couple of years and such activity is expected to increase. 

Most recently, Tara Stanley and Tamzin Renouf went down to train with the newly established Bronte Barbarians U12s girls team. There will be many more such visits as the Tigresses look to inspire more girls under the #CasGirlsCan banner! 

The team is now also taking part in Tesco's 'Bags of Help' scheme. Fans can help the team get funding for more community activities by voting for the Castleford Tigers Women in the Tesco's Airedale store. 

Make sure to keep an eye out on the next issue of Roar where we will have a full pre-season catch up with the head coach of Castleford Tigers Women.
