We are proud to be associated with a prestigious Real Estate Agency like Cunninghams and look forward to growing together on the Northern Beaches.”

Cunninghams Managing Director, John Cunningham welcomed the partnership. “Collaboration and team work gets you over the try line on the rugby field and the team at Cunninghams think the same way when it comes to our team and Business so we are proud to support Warringah Rats Women’s Rugby to help ensure that these talented rugby players kick all their goals in 2016,” he said.

The Ratettes have a proud history and successful track record having won the Sydney premiership nine times in it’s 20 year history.  Over the years the squad has produced some of the best female players in the sport and boast considerable talent amongst their ranks currently including Australian 7s stars Chloe Dalton and Ellia Green as well as Wallaroos Tui Ormsby, Danielle Meskell, Cobie-Jane Morgan and NSW Representatives Sarah Laman, Katrina Barker and Emily Robinson to name but a few.
