WIDNES RUFC girls hit the opposition for six at the North West of England trials.
Half a dozen under 16s players from the Heath Road club came through a three hour session to earn places in the regional squad.
They are full-back Lizzie Webster, winger Stacey King, centre Kate Davies, stand-off
Mandy Edge, hooker Emma Banks and prop Gemma Harris.
The North West's first game of the season is against the Midlands at Lichfield on Sunday, November 22.
Widnes Ladies manager Tom Bebbington said: 'All the Widnes girls who attended the trial were a credit to the club and the town.
'Competition for places was intense with players from Waterloo, Liverpool St Helens, Maryport, Oldham, Sedgeley Park, Port Sunlight and Kirby Lonsdale all attending.
'Girls and ladies rugby union is the fastest developing game in the country.'
Players aged 12 and above are welcome to attend girls and women's training at Widnes RUFC every Tuesday and Thursday from 6pm-8pm. For further information, telephone Tom on 420 8494.
