Last time, before the Perth Origin game, there was a Womens WA vs NT game.
I'd guess there'll be a WA vs *someone* game: mens, womens, or u18s or something similar.

Unfortunately I'm not a club president, or in fact involved in any way in the local game, these days so I have no inside info this time. Just presuming.

The NRL decided this as well:

The Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) has confirmed new representative fixtures – Under-19s male and female State of Origin, on Thursday, June 23, at Leichhardt Oval.

Both matches will be broadcast on the Nine Network and Fox Sports, while each under-19s team will also be permitted to select two NRL or NRLW contracted “marquee” under-20s players for the match.

Players who would be eligible by age as under-19s or four under-20 marquee spots would include Roosters duo Sam Walker and Joseph Suaalii, Parramatta centre Will Penisini, Warriors fullback Reece Walsh, Broncos halfback Ezra Mam or Dragons fullback Tyrell Sloan.

Yeah I knew it about this one but because it wasn't a game day curtain raiser I didn't include it. Not sure on the need for it myself as don't we already have an U/20's Interstate game ? Or have had one in the past ?

Only U19 now games now. I do find that adding potentially two U20's for each side is a gimmick. Let the best U19 play.

Was actually a good game and the crowd that got there early enjoyed it. An amazing experience for those kids as well, one they'll never forget I'm sure. Was nice to give kids from outside NSW and Qlnd an opportunity to play on a big stage. Maybe only thing I would have changed is have it as Pirates WA U18's v a CAS U18's then the crowd would have really got into it.
