Monarch Blues Tag FAQs
What will our club get?
Your Junior League club will receive one set of tags per team, Monarch-branded match footballs and increased club membership.
What day are Monarch Blues Tag competitions played?
Days of play are dependent on the number of teams in each Junior League district. Conference competitions are offered across districts and at this stage Blues Tag for girls will be played on Sundays in Cronulla.
St George, Parramatta, Canterbury, Eastern Suburbs & Balmain will play on Sunday afternoons after 2pm. In Manly & North Sydney it will be played on Saturday afternoons from 1-3pm.
With an increase in number of clubs registering Monarch Blues Tag teams, the NSWRL is hopeful of offering localised competitions operating within existing Junior League districts.
