Jersey Flegg Cup

The Jersey Flegg Cup returned in 2019 with the NSWRL reviving the historic competition in 2018 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.
