The Melbourne Rebels women want to finish their inaugural Super W on a high, as they host NSW.

Though they'll be up against it when they face ladder leaders, coach Alana Thomas wants her players to recognise the growth they've had this season.

Melbourne is yet to win a game, but Thomas said there was much more to this team's journey than that.

Each week we’ve grown and developed as a side. We’re a young side, so we’re only going to continue to develop,” Thomas said.

“We’ve had some really big positives (in recent weeks), so we’ll be looking to continue to carry that forward.”

The Rebels women host the NSW women on Saturday April 7, kicking off at 3pm AEST, LIVE STREAMED on
