Just an update on NRL SA

- Roughly 600 registered players, 30% female and 20% of those players at South Adelaide RLC
- All clubs are struggling with Junior development
- Aim of the organisation is to have all have clubs "be fully developed" meanining that teams are fielded for all tiers and divisions. Adelaide Hills Tigers aims to achieve this within 2 years.
- - Until this objective is completed, there will be no further expansion of the NRL SA
- Only three development officers (DOs) in SA. WA and Victoria have about 30.
-- NRL wont send more DOs until the number of players and overal participation increases.

We have 2 DO in WA. If you have 3 you are doing well!

Only 2 with 4000+ registered players? My source told me that WA has at least 30.
I actually emailed them to check as I knew we only had 2 a few years ago.
Turns out we had 4 until this month when we just got a 5th!
The ARLC grassroots funding outside of NSW and Qlnd is disgraceful!

It's really disgusting how they gatekeep the game. SA and WA are craving Rugby League.

At the formation of the ARLC they decided to centralise a lot of things including DO's and then closed down the state bodies as independent organisations, except NSWRL and QRL, and took them all in house. I cant say that it improved anything!

It does sht me that the ARLC can find an extra $100mill a year for NRL clubs and players but cant find $2mill for each of the expansion states and NZRL.

Absolute madness - and it would not even cost that much to fund a solid franchise in the expansion states. Pump $15-20 million and have those teams play in the NSW cup for 5 years and by 2030's we'll have most states covered.

I support WA, SA and even Tasmania eventually having a team.

I don’t think Tasmania is big enough
