Shaun Johnson will be pink from head to toe again when he and the Vodafone Warriors support the NRL's Women in League cause.


The seventh annual Harvey Norman Women in League Round is officially observed this weekend, paying tribute to the tens of thousands of women involved in rugby league at all levels.


However, as the Vodafone Warriors are away to Penrith on Saturday night (7.30pm kick-off local time; 9.30pm NZT) they'll mark the Women in League initiative in their following home match against Newcastle at Mount Smart Stadium on Sunday, May 26 (4.00pm kick-off; match day sponsor: dtr).


ASICS has produced one-off pairs of pink Lethal Tigreor boots for its ambassadors to wear during Women in League games.


Johnson, Greg Inglis, Terry Campese, Benji Marshall, Johnathan Thurston, Josh Reynolds, Tim Mannah and Tim Grant will head a long list of leading NRL players who will wear the boots.


ASICS and its ambassadors are proud to show support towards the initiative which celebrates the role women play in rugby league. Its also a chance for the game to say thank you to the many women who help build the foundations of the sport.

All members, fans and the general public are invited to the event (8.00pm start) when they'll be able to mix and mingle with the players. During the evening, weekly winners of the players' player of the day award will be presented with their SKYCITY gift packs.
