    Harold Matthews – Under 17
    SG Ball – Under – 19
    Jersey Flegg – Under 21

    Nothing on a Canterbury Cup side

    I would say that's more to do with the fact those three are classified as junior competitions. I doubt anybody knows for sure what's happening with CC in 2021.

    There are rumours that there will not be a CC comp. It will be Presidents Cup and Sydney Shield.
    But V'landys seems to indicate that there would be a CC comp or equivalent

    I have heard that North Sydney will not be fielding a team in Jersey Flegg (U21's).
    Looking for more information of teams that will be competing in both of the Jersey Flegg and Presidents Cup competitions in 2021.

    Well with Warriors leaving to the Q-Cup, the current crop of CC teams is down to 11.

    Wests, Saints, Parra, Mounties (Canterbury), Canberra, Norths (Roosters), Souths, Blacktown (Manly), Penrith, Newcastle & Newtown (Cronulla). Would they be able to entice Wyong back for a 12-team comp?

    Last publicity was that canberra will not have a NSW Cup team, instead relying on inter club scrimmages and send players to the local canberra Cup comp, if they are not still in the bubble.

    Wyong wont be playing NSW Cup. They pulled all their teams out for 2020 but at the last minute entered the Newcastle comp on the basis that players in all clubs were not paid, so they have no money for NSW Cup.

    The interesting caveat is the Flegg being raised to Under 21s, with regards to participation numbers. I thought it was necessated by NSWRL that each team had to have representation in the state cup? Knowing NSWRL, we won't know until March and they'll milk the covid restrictions for all its worth.

    Having watched the Dragons feed players into a local comp, then later to the Metro Cup instead of Reserve Grade / NSW Cup, all I can say is that’s it’s a shocking idea. The jump in talent from playing in the local comp or RMC/Presidents Cup to 1st Grade is huge. The players dominate the lower comp, then get dominated in 1st Grade when called up.

    Would Canberra not be better trying to partner with one of the bigger local teams like Queanbeyan Whites or Gunghalin Bulls to field a NSW Cup team? Similar to what they had done in the past with Mounties?

    I recall that 4 of the 17 that played for St George in the NRL Quarter final in 2008 played Jim Beam Cup for Shellharbour during that season.

    Canberra tried to link with Wentworthville for NSW Cup but it fell through

    Correct. There were issues with JBC players moving back down after playing 1st Grade, if I remember due to the player point system in place. For example, Wendell Sailor made his comeback with Shellharbour in a game against the WA Reds, but after playing 1st Grade he had to go play for Burleigh Bears when dropped instead because his point value was far too high.
