There were 150 women at Runaway Bay on Thursday morning taking part in skills, anaerobic drills and small sided games as coaches from the four clubs looked on.

Within this number weren't just the athletes who had played the sport before but around 50 never played rugby league before the day and many more were taking their skills from rugby 7s or union and putting them into league.

The day had a lot of interest with 450 women registering but things like travel saw the numbers go down and others had to drop out after they were called into National Championship teams as sides had injuries.

With the success of the day, both Elite Female Pathways Manager Jamie Feeney and Senior Manager Elite Women's Program Tiffany Slater have said that 2019 could see more Talent ID days.

"Maybe two in each state (Queensland and NSW) might be where we need to go next year," Feeney said.

There is also the opportunity for clubs to them as well and Feeney supports this idea and has vowed to work with clubs to help with the elite pathway programs.

"Everything we are doing this year we would like to expand and grow, that includes the ID day," Slater said.

"The support has been encouraging and the interest we got for this one, definitely want to expand on it," she added.

Even if players from Thursday aren't selected for one of the four NRL Women's Premiership clubs, they have the chance to continue in league with local competitions in their state.

"For us, it's about bringing as many people into the rugby league family as possible and expanding the numbers involved," Slater said.

"Female participation is the fastest growing part of the game and we want to encourage that and keep it going," she added.
