Rugby Football League Hall of Fame - Women

Inducted Name About
2022 Brenda DobekBrenda Dobek was a true pioneer, leading Great Britain to Ashes victory in Australia in 1996, winning a total of 20 caps, and giving outstanding service at club level to Wakefield Panthers, Townville and Featherstone Rovers, then coaching her country with distinction including in the 2008 World Cup. A skilful, athletic stand-off, she played until the age of 45, and was a consistent inspiration.
Lisa McIntoshLisa McIntosh was an international team-mate of Dobek's, although a club rival with Bradford and Dudley Hill, and meriting a similar description. Her trailblazing as one of the early leaders of Great Britain Women's Rugby League had additional racial and positional dimensions, she is thought to have been the first black woman to captain a British team when she was co-captain for the 1996 Ashes tour and then in sole charge for a trip to New Zealand two years later, and set new standards of athleticism for a forward in the Women's game. She retired at the age of 42, and like Dobek she also qualified for the elite coaching programme.
Sally MilburnSally Miburn was a champion for Cumbria in her 23-cap career in the Great Britain pack, earning international recognition through her performances for Barrow and Askam. She was named in the World 17 following her performances in the World Cup in New Zealand in 2003, having toured Australia twice in 1996 and 2002. She joins the Yorkshirewomen Dobek and McIntosh in the Women's Hall of Fame, following in the footsteps of fellow Cumbrians Dougie Clark, Martin Hodgson and Willie Horne who were elected to the Hall of Fame of 2005 in the cases of Clark and Hodgson, and 2014 in the case of her fellow Barrovian Horne.
