Report

________________________________________________________

Report: Linda Holland was born in Cork before moving to Perth, Western Australia in 2009. She started playing American Football there and in 2013 when the Legends Football League came to Australia she jumped at the opportunity to play Professional American Football. Even though the League has garnered criticism for the tiny shorts and crop tops the players wear (at first they played in Lingerie but that was changed after sexism claims) Linda said it was an honour to represent her country, describing herself as “Irish by birth, Irish by grace of God”. [1] The Western Australia Angels reached the Final in 2013-14, losing 36-15 to NSW Surge.[8]
