Teresa a star at rugby and netball

TERESA Williams just loves her rugby league.

She knows the idea of playing in defence is not to let anyone get past you – the same applies in indoor netball or so it seems.

But Williams, who has played a couple of rugby league games for the Hervey Bay Seagulls in charity games, is also well aware that she cannot tackle anyone coming her way – unlike in her beloved rugby league.

However, she does have a couple of weapons in her armoury when she’s playing as goal defence for the Knights Girls in the Hervey Bay PCYC social indoor competition.

“That’s where my bottom and hips come in handy,” Williams, who has played netball since she was 10, laughed.

“I grew these hips for this game.

“Besides, the idea of playing in my position is to stop players having a shot and I’ll use anything to do that.”

Williams said she loved hitting the court to play each week.

“It’s not about winning,” said Williams, who admitted she’d love to have a run with the Hervey Bay Seagulls women’s team this year – if she got fit.

“Sure everyone loves to win and I am one of them but this competition is all about having fun.

“We don’t care about the end result as long as we’ve had a good time.”

But has Williams ever contemplated making a return to playing competition netball again?

“There is no chance whatsoever of me doing that,” she giggled.

“I simply won’t ever wear a skirt.”
