The game is changing with the NSWRL's innovative Recreational Rugby League programs – and following a bumper first season last year,  the 2018-19 season will be bigger and better than ever.

The socially-oriented tournaments provide a fun and hassle-free opportunity for players to participate in a fast-paced and friendly footy format. These include M8s, 9s and League Tag competitions, typically held outside of the more competitive Junior League season.

A number of competitions have been booked in to take place. Stay tuned as details of future competitions will be listed here.

Simply email to register your interest as an individual or as a team.

All are FREE programs with no player clearances or coaches required. Non-Junior League players are welcome and insurance is provided. Players are welcome to attend any week of the program and there is no registration cut-off.


M8s: A socially-oriented competition for younger age groups. An eight-a-side format with each team playing two (20-minute) games per week on a modified field.

Friday Night 9s: A socially-oriented competition for open age groups, played on Friday nights. It's a great way to stay fit during the off-season and for new open-age players to be introduced to the game.
