York Valkyrie are some people’s tip to win the women’s Super League in 2023.
York finished top of the league last year but have been unable to win a major final yet.
In 2021 they lost the Challenge Cup Final to St Helens before losing the Grand Final to the third place Leeds Rhinos last year.
Underlining their credentials in 2023, they defeated Leeds in a Grand Final rematch in Round One on Easter Sunday in front of a record crowd.
York have continued to show they are the team to beat in 2023 with a win by an insane margin against Hull KR in the Challenge Cup today.
They won 122-0 against the Robins to really show that they could very well claim the silverware in the two major finals with Wembley Stadium calling the Women’s Finalists.
We shouldn’t be too critical of Hull KR who are a developing side and for some time as the sport emerges from its infancy we will see scorelines like this as players develop and the league gest more competitive.
York themselves have proven how teams can develop over time.
