"The NRL seems to think they are worth backing. Got nothing to do with feminism, it's got to do with showing some respect and support for Australian Representative Players."
of a national LEVEL <----
(+ Harvey Norman - a sponsor that believe in them and have donated/supplied significant funds)

put simply
Currently the 2 highest comps for women's league in Australia are the jillaroos/Ferns and NSW/QLD interstate Cup in Australia where this game is developed
sure NSW/QLD isn't international, but it is an offshoot of StateOfOr one of the most highly watched League fixtures anywhere on the planet which means it should be considered

here dann is the mann nailed it also
"People are also saying that the womens' game isn't big enough AT THE MINUTE and that may well be true, but wouldn't it help make it bigger if it was included in a video game?..... "

as ross said, if he could still stay in business RLL live would be issued to every kid that's buys a box of Weetbix to help the sport expand and get people playing RLL, you don't generate interest by the same thing again and again

why include the jillaroos? ------> ROI
because the Dollars BigAnt/Tru would have to spend to use there teams/kit/likenesses would generate significant hype around the game and return money on that investment via increased awareness of the game in NON League Area's (not guaranteed but a better chance than others)
it would show reach more people and would expose the game to people that don't already have a significant interest in it and would hopefully generate additional media coverage/sales

/rant off

What can I say? All very good points mate. Would be a good option to have in my view - if not for this edition, then for the next.

Doing the modelling etc for the girls wouldn't break the bank one wouldn't think, as the animations wouldn't really need to change.
