Jersey Flegg Cup

The Jersey Flegg Cup is back in 2018 after a 10-year absence, with the NSWRL reviving the historic competition following the cessation of the NRL-run under-20s National Youth Competition. 

The competition is named after Harry “Jersey” Flegg, who played for the Eastern Suburbs in 1908 and 1909, and was a prominent administrator of the game up until 1960. 

It began as an under-19s age group until the NRL was formed in 1998, and was originally held as part of the NSWRL’s junior representative season that was played over nine-to-12 weeks early in the season.

For the 2018 season, the Jersey Flegg Cup will consist of 12 NSWRL clubs: 11 existing NSW-based sides as well as New Zealand's Warriors. This includes 10 NRL franchises as well as two feeder teams, Mounties and the North Sydney Bears, to act as feeders for the Canberra Raiders and South Sydney Rabbitohs respectively.

Jersey Flegg Cup games will be played over two 35-minute halves, in line with the NSWRL's under-18s SG Ball Cup. It will run for 21 rounds over a 25-week period which includes two breaks of two weeks each in May and July 2018.
