I am getting old and forgetful.
RMC and SS are run by the NSWRL. So NRL clubs can do a deal with any of them.
Looks like Cabramatta will not be in RMC/SS. Their board had proposed that the Leagues club be taken over by Cabravale RSL but only 25% of Cabramatta members voted in favour, so they wont be getting the $1 million per year from Cabravale for rugby league.
I knew about the vote but is the decision not to run RMC/SS a recent thing ?
Does that mean no women's too ?
My assumption was that without the RSL money they have nothing for semi pro football. Their website is full of posts about Junior footy being back in 2021 but nothing about anything else and their list of coaches ends at Under 21's.
I would have thought that cabra leagues club would make enough money to pay for RMC and SS teams.
Cabra Leagues profit in 2017 was only $46k but at the same time they borrowed $3.5 million for improvements to the club. It has gone downhill from there with losses of more than $0.5 million in each of 2018 and 2019 so last year Cabra Leagues club sought expressions from other clubs to "merge" with them ie bail them out. But the members voted against it. They have not put their 2020 annual report on the website but Covid will have created a lot of red ink, so they be putting every cent towards clearing the bank debt so they can survive.
I heard Cabramatta were in Massey, Shield and Womens, That was 20th November. Frank Pritchard to coach Massey
Confirmed teams for 2021 Ron Massey Cup
Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles
Cabramatta Two Blues
Glebe Dirty Reds
Hills District Bulls
Ryde Eastwood Hawks
Western Suburbs Magpies
And I'm hearing Fiji will be based in Sydney
Any news on SS ?
I’m thinking shield will be very similar without the stand alone Massey teams I’m guessing.
So much for the President's Cup idea. A shame it lasted only a season :/
What comp is U23s ?
I think Flegg is U21's
U23s is probably a comp in the Penrith district.
I know there is an u23s in the combined comp in Sydney
Correct - Penrith district if sufficient number of teams, otherwise St Marys will play in the Sydney Conferences.
Heard Tony Williams is Windsor's marquee player
You're right. I forgot they went up a year due to the COVID cancellation. SG Ball is 19's, Matt's 17's
Separate names with a comma.
