Junior Reps and Development

The SG Ball, Tarsha Gale and Harold Matthews Cups form the pathway for junior male and female talent.

The NSWRL's long-held junior representatives competitions allow for the best young talent to compete at a high level. Under-18s boys (SG Ball), under-18s girls (Tarsha Gale) and under-16s boys (Harold Matthews) line up for recognised clubs, many of which also feature at NRL and Intrust Super Premiership NSW level. The competition is held over a shortened 13-week season, beginning in February and culminating at NSWRL Junior Reps Grand Final Day in May.
