In this podcast, Russell Todd chats with Julia Lee, who is not only a member of the ‘Disability and Women’s Sports’ project scoping team, but since the late 1980s has been a pioneer for women’s involvement in rugby league.

Julia talks about her passion for rugby league and about the barriers she faced as a female referee in the men’s game. Julia also explains how her experiences made her determined to ensure women in the future had far more opportunities and support should they wish to be involved in the game.
