Hat-trick of award nominations for Aussie Women's Sevens team

by RUGBY.com.au staff

The efforts of the Qantas Australian Women's Sevens team have been recognised by respected health and fitness title Women's Health, with the team nominated in three categories in its I Support Women in Sport Awards.

In one of the hotly-contested categories the Women's Sevens team has been nominated alongside the Matildas (soccer), Diamonds (netball), Hockeyroos and Southern Stars (cricket) as the A-Team of the Year.

Australian Women's skipper Sharni Williams is one of five nominations as a Leadership Legend. The 26-year-old will be up against Madonna Blyth (hockey), Laura Geitz (netball), Meg Lanning (cricket) and Penny Taylor (basketball).

Women's Health has taken a glance into the future with a One To Watch category. 2015 World Rugby Women's Player of the Year nominee Charlotte Caslick has made the star-studded five-strong list that also features Brittany Broben (diving), Georgia Miller (ironwoman), Eleanor Patterson (high jump) and Molly Strano (cricket).

Now in its fifth year, the Women's Health I Support Women In Sport campaign "celebrates the achievements of our [Australian] athletes, from the women making a difference on a grass-roots level to those scoring world-class gold".
