Scone is developing a vibrant women's rugby nursery in town.
That's the opinion of Michelle Edwards, who's currently overseeing three Brumbies' outfits in readiness for the upcoming 2020 North West Regional Youth Competition.
The local club will take to the field in the under-14, under-16 and under-18 age groups.
"I'm really happy with the response we've got," Edwards said.
"But, we'll always accept more players if they're keen.
"This is our third season in the comp, however it's the first time we've had three full-sized teams.
"So, we've attracted great numbers this year, including girls from Muswellbrook, Blandford and Merriwa.
"We're not just looking after Scone," she added with a laugh.
"They're only playing sevens rugby - it's a good way to learn the game, especially for the newcomers.
"They love it already.
"And, so they should; it's great fun."
Although the draw is yet to be finalised, the Brumbies are expecting to kick off their respective campaigns on Friday, July 31.
"The excitement is growing," Edwards said.
"All the girls are training together as a group and - tonight - they began contact drills.
"Then they'll move into their respective sides on game day where they'll play two matches per night.
"I've been very impressed by the girls' level of enthusiasm.
"They're all willing to learn, which is a fantastic sign for the club."
Joining Edwards on the journey is ex-Australian Wallaroos and ACT Brumbies star Kate Brown.
"It's a bit of a coup having her on board," she said.
"Kate's so well-respected on the local [rugby] scene.
"She's helping me coach the girls - and will provide invaluable guidance."
