NRL League Tag moving to weeknights

As female rugby league begins to take off we are looking for ways to be able to sustain our growth. A target area for NRL Victoria has been NRL League Tag (NRLLT). Currently NRLLT is not only competing against other sports, it is also currently competing against the contact version of the game. To help alleviate this issue and to encourage more females, young and old, to play our sport NRLLT will be moving to weeknights in their own districts.

The feedback from previous League Tag open forums held at the beginning of 2019 has resulting in having Friday nights as our League Tag night across Melbourne. On top of the weekly competitions there will be 3 Gala events through the 2019 NRL Victoria Rugby League season for new comers to trial. Currently we are setting it up to have competitions based in the following locations:

-          WEST – Haines Drive Reserve, Werribee. (Werribee Bears Home Ground)

-          NORTH – AJ Davies Reserve, Keilor (North West Wolves Home Ground)

-          SOTH EAST – Greeves Reserve, Dandenong (South East Titans Home Ground) and Colchester Reserve, Boronia (Eastern Raptors Home Ground)

Current competition option may include dependant on the area:

-          Under 12’s Social Games

-          Under 14’s Girls

-          Under 14’s Boys

-          Under 17’s Girls

-          Under 17’s Boys

-          Women’s

-          Men’s
