Western Australia takes part in a ground-breaking tour of Malaysia and Singapore, the first Western Australian female representative side to venture into Asia. The WA State team wins all six games played in Malaysia and draws the single friendly in Singapore. The team is treated like royalty and matches were attended by thousands. Seven WA players travelling to Malaysia (Sharon Loveless, Julie Clayton, Jude Pettitt, Sandra Brentnall, Jill Syson, Teresa Kozak and Anna Senjuschenko) are later selected for the Australian Tour to Taiwan in 1978.
