LEETON shire's talented crop of sports players continues to extend to the women's rugby union field.
The shire has three young women playing representative union currently at a state level.
Remi WIlton and Anna Korovata are playing for the ACT/NSW Brumbies, while Cecilia Smith is tearing up the field with the Queensland Reds.
Kaitlyn McKay was also chosen in the Brumbies squad, but was felled by injury late last year.
The Brumbies and Reds will go face-to-face this weekend in a do-or-die semi-final clash, which will see Wilton and Korovata taking on Smith.
Brumbies coach Adam Butt said he continued to be impressed with the two Leeton alumni.
He said the pair fitted in well with his Super W team and they had continued to go from strength-to-strength throughout the season.
"They are both great additions to the team," Butt said.
"They've put in a lot of hard work and they're very valuable to the team."
Korovata is a front rower for the Brumbies playing prop off the bench.
Butt said she had the ability to come into the game late and really make a difference and plenty of "go-forward" for the side.
Wilton is the side's starting halfback and a key player in the team every week.
Butt said her determination and skill was a crucial part of the side's success.
Smith plays in the centre for the Reds and is known for her speed and agility.
She is no stranger to representative sport, having represented Fetu Samoa, the women's national rugby league team, in the Commonwealth Championships.
Smith is hoping her time with the Reds may lead to national selection with the Wallaroos. Butt said his side would be on the look out for Smith in the match.
"Last time we played the Reds, Cessy scored two tries against us and that's how much they ended up winning by," he said. "The girls will definitely want to get one back over her.
"I think there's a bit of rivalry there."
Residents wanting to watch the sides go head-to-head on Saturday can head to the Wade Hotel from 2.30pm where the match will be screened.
