    I'd rather the players be taught by full-time coaches rather than some wannabe who would have made first grade if his knee didn't blow out just before he was picked in the 90's

    It's crazy to me that I can watch College football live but for the under 20's I have to sit through 7 other game's highlights just to watch the tries from the Eels' games

    that’s because they know hardly anybody cares about under 20s. By the way Blacktown v St Greg (Commonwealth Bank Cup) is apparently being streamed at the moment.

    Strange when the NYC outrated the Aleague and most other sports, it was killed off as some clubs felt that the U20s expected to move straight into the NrL and the demands from managers were getting silly.

    I enjoy the thought of the youngsters producing a star and seeing which kids are moved up to NSW cup apon the road to NRL.
    I'd rather go to a NSW cup game where I can chill and not listen too 15k people screaming also. It's a relaxing type of game rather then intense.

    We had to start a womens comp or fall behind even further with all these other sports that are woke and getting favorable feminist coverage out of it and government financial assistance.
    A good womens comp adds a lot more than junior competitions.

    Yes a good women’s comp, not an embarrassing token 4 team Comp that no one honestly gives a flog about.

    Plenty of females give a flog about it!!

    They needed to started a NRL women’s comp in some format to encourage junior development.

    Plenty of junior female tackle comps now starting with good numbers.

    The female side of the game is enjoying a massive increase in game participation.

    Not the NRLs fault that Parra etc were dragging too much knuckle to put in an application. Damn mouth breathers.

    The NRL should get some of these girls into toastmasters and make the broadcasting partner use them for commentary rather than the spoilt white chicks they insist on using.

    I have no problem with a women’s comp but it shouldn’t have taken the death of the national 20’s comp to do it.
