A blow dealt to grassroots sports in WA

A big blow has been dealt to WA sports & the local clubs & players, as the body that runs sport in Australia, has decided to pull out of WA. This decision could hurt the State’s chances of finding future stars with similar calibre to that of Nat Fyfe or Sam Kerr.
