Calling cheerleaders

While her boyfriend is wowing crowds on the field, Amelia Redgard will be hoping she can create a little excitement on the sidelines.

The Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles’ Queensland Cup rugby league side is on the lookout for cheerleaders, and Amelia, 21, is set to head up the squad.

The girlfriend of Sea Eagles backrower Jon Grieve, Amelia said she was hoping to put together a group of 20 cheerleaders, with the aim of adding a bit of glitz and glamour to the Stockland Park experience.

“I just hope we can bring a little excitement to the games,” she said.

“We just want to get some support behind the club.”

The girls will perform at Sea Eagles’ home games and help out with promotional opportunities.

Despite the groundswell of negative publicity surrounding rugby league at the moment, Amelia said she had no hesitation in getting involved with the Sea Eagles.

“Everyone I’ve met through rugby league has just been relaxed and really respectful,” she said.

“I’ve only had positive experiences.”

Auditions, open to girls over 18, will be held at 10am on Saturday at Stockland Park.
