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.
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.
The Jersey Flegg Cup consist of 13 NSWRL clubs: 11 existing NSW-based sides, as well as the Canberra Raiders and Victorian Thunderbolts.
