It was a huge day for the Maitland Blacks women on and off the field at Marcellin Park on Saturday.
The injury-hit Blacks women’s rugby team were valiant going down by 22 points against Merewether Carlton and then joined the celebrations of the annual Maitland Blacks Ladies’ Day.
Rucks and mauls were swapped for manicures and massages enjoyed while sipping on champagne.
One of the most popular events on the sporting social calendar the event again lived up to its healthy reputation.
And what Ladies Day at the Blacks would be complete without the sack race at half-time of the first grade game.
Maitland’s first grade team capped off the day with a thrilling 40-36 win against Merewether Carlton.
