Default History of the Premiership Trophy

With Grand Final week opon us, I was curious to know if the winners of the NRL premiership get a replica of trophy to have in their trophy cabinet. For example does Canterbury have a Winfield cup with their 2004 Premiership at Canterbury leagues?. Did Melbourne have their trophy cabinet raided? For the salary cap scandal.

Or is it a case of just getting a badge on the trophy? And holding the trophy for one season before giving it back. I think having a trophy made every season would be better for the winning club to keep.

Thoughts?

Maybe they should. But they don't. Seems a bit late to start now. But maybe they could start and give the other clubs who have won retrospective trophies. There's only been 12 premiership winners in the NRL so it's not that many.

I was walking around AAMI Stadium a month or so ago and Im positive I saw the trophy in a cabinent in one of the supporter shops. And the cabinent at the Brisbane Red Hill Leagues Club is full of them.

Surely its not a replica, they wouldn't be that expensive to make would they?

The JJ Giltinan shield on the other hand.

What would be the point in winning the thing if you didn't get a replica to keep?

What happened to the Winfield Cup trophy? Did the Bulldogs keep it because they were last ones to win it before it became the Optus Cup?

So the Winfield Cup that Canberra dropped of there motorcade and broke, was handed to another team the next season (actually did Canberra win it again?).

Surely not.

The storm have two replicas on display in a cabinet down the players tunnel, 99 and 07.

I was certain I read something about the Bulldogs still having the final Winfield Cup trophy?

I presume the Knights kept the final Optus Cup also.

Only the base broke and it was fully repaired within days. I'm fairly certain that the trophy is passed on year to year.

. Let's go back before there was no Provan/Summons type statue and just the JJ Gilitan shield - teams didn't get to keep that either.

Nah mate, no replicas. When we had it, the trophey was in the entrance to the Leagues, and rotated between Kogarah and Wollongong.

But, as soon as Manly won it, it went straight to their Leagues Club *sigh*

In my personal opinion, there shouldn't be replicas. The players work hard to win it and have it on display. Once someone else wins it, the prestige that goes with having it in your club should apply to them, no-one else.
