League girls' grand final win sparks mad celebration

MAD Monday celebrations were underway for the victorious Gladstone Raidettes women's rugby league team on Monday.

The grand final-winning ladies were out in their best team-colour costumes, visiting establishments around town to toast their success.

Second-rower Amanda Jones said the girls were enjoying themselves after a tough win.

"Since 10am this morning we've been going, and we didn't finish up until 5.30am Sunday morning after the grand final," laughed Ms Jones.

The ladies went back to the clubhouse immediately after the game to kick-off celebrations and the triumphant team had kept the party rolling through the weekend.
