BRADFORD Bulls Women's captain Amy Hardcastle has played a starring role for Yorkshire in this week's two Origin clashes - scoring two tries for the White Rose.

Hardcastle captained Yorkshire in both clashes. Lancashire were victors in Game One on Sunday, but Hardcastle crossed for her side's second try of the game in the 15-8 defeat.

Batley's Fox's Biscuits Stadium hosted the second meeting on Wednesday, with the Bulls star scoring a late try to level proceedings and keep Yorkshire's hopes of Origin success alive.

The Origin Series ends with Game Three - this Sunday - at Weetwood (12pm kick-off).

Hardcastle will lead out her team-mates in Bradford's first Betfred Women's Super League against Leeds Rhinos on Sunday, March 29.
