The Penticton Harlequins women’s rugby team has talent.

That’s what their coach Mike Bevan believes.

“There is definitely some really promising girls out there,” said Bevan. “There is a few girls who have been playing for a few years. Compared to what I was used to in Edmonton and Lethbridge, the skill set and just the experience, we are really low on experience.”

Bevan is hoping they can add experienced players and welcomes women who can bring that. He sees the desire in his current group which he has already committed to for next season as long as they do the same.

“I think we have a lot of potential,” he said, adding he likes what Lakers senior women’s coach Ian Butters has done at Pen High.

Anyone interested in trying is welcome to attend practices Monday and Wednesday at 7 p.m. at McNicoll Park.
