Round 22 is all about Women In League and this weekend will see the NRL say thank you and recognise the role women play in our great game.
Clubs and players across the league will recognise the role women play in a number of ways and on Saturday six of the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs players - Josh Jackson, Jeremy Marshall-King, Lachlan Lewis, Rhyse Martin, Danny Fualalo and Fa'manu Brown will wear pink Bodyscience compression shorts under their playing shorts against the Manly Sea Eagles.
Bodyscience are the club's official supplement and compression sponsor and have had a long association with the Bulldogs, Women In League round and the game.
"We're proud to partner with the Canterbury Bulldogs and support the Women In League round. This is always a very special week in the NRL calendar, acknowledging all the support from our women in league from grass roots right through to the professionals. We wouldn't be where we are now without them," said Nathan Picklum, Director BSC
Following the conclusion of the match against the Sea Eagles, the compression shorts will be signed and donated to local community program Linking Hearts to auction.
Linking Hearts provides safe and supported crisis and transitional accommodation, rapid rehousing and intensive support for clients with complex needs.
