    From the statement it was so they can invest more resources into the NSW Cup team and setup.

    Also a conspiracy that the funds used on RMC will be injected into the Balmain 18's and 16's sides.

    Fiji 'Silktails' to join NSWRL competition in 2020

    NSWRL has today announced an historic agreement with Fiji National Rugby League which will see Fiji field a team in a NSWRL competition next season in a move to significantly assist the development and growth of the game and provide a pathway for the country’s aspiring Rugby League players.

    The agreement was unveiled before the Prime Minister’s XIII match against Fiji at ANZ Stadium in Suva tonight, which was attended by Australian Prime Minister, the Hon. Scott Morrison, Fijian Prime Minister Frank Bainimarama, NSWRL Chairman Dr George Peponis OAM, NSWRL General Manager – Football, Barrie-Jon Mather and Fijian-born Rugby League legend Petero Civoniceva.

    The team will be known as the Kaiviti Silktails (Kaiviti means someone from Fiji while the Silktails are a bird native to the country) and will play in the Ron Massey Cup next season with a view to eventually playing in the state’s premier competition, Canterbury Cup NSW.

    The deal has been made possible by the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) which has supported Fiji’s application and will provide a funding deal for the next four years and has also backed a move to play NRL pre-season trial matches in the Pacific for the next three years.

    “This is an historic and exciting day for both the NSWRL and Fiji National Rugby League,” Dr Peponis said.

    “Fiji has provided our game with plenty of exciting players over the decades and it’s a wonderful initiative to now have a direct pathway to help them pursue a Rugby League career.

    “I’d like to thank the DFAT for all their support and I can’t wait to see the Kaiviti Silktails in action in 2020.”

    Civoniceva, a proud Fijian who also represented Australia and Queensland and has been a driving force behind the bid, said: “It’s been about six years in the making but something of this nature was always going to take time.

    “We’ve been very fortunate to have a good support network of people behind this push.

    --------------------------

    I've heard the team will be made of purely of Fiji locals and play out of Suva, as opposed to being Sydney based.

    So your saying that teams will go over there and play or are they picked from Fiji and will be a Sydney based team here , but with the Fiji name ?

    The team will be based in Nadi in Fiji.

    Might be a few NSW Cup players happy to drop down a grade next season just quietly...

    With Wests not continuing in RMC it was likely that excess NSW Cup players would have to play with either of East Campbelltown or Ryde Eastwood in SS, however, one of those options may be removed as East Campbelltown have been discussing a feeder arrangement with Mounties.
