The New South Wales Rugby League in August announced the formation of a new under-18s female competition, the Tarsha Gale Cup, to run alongside existing Junior Representative competitions in 2017.

Named after former Australian and NSW captain Tarsha Gale, the game-leading tournament will develop the best of the best in the age group as NSWRL push towards an elite female league.

The NSWRL broke new ground in 2016 with new competitions providing more opportunities to female players – and a significant increase in resources provided to female pathway programs. For the first time in its history, the Sydney Metropolitan Women’s Competition has featured two divisions, while the Sydney Combined Competition has featured girls competitions in 13-15 years and 16-18 years for the first time.

Interested players can contact for more information on where and how to become involved. The below list will be updated as trial information for clubs is finalised.
