The Country Cup competition is offered to High Schools in Country NSW regions to provide a truly state wide competition that is more appropriate to their needs and the need of the Rugby League in our localcommunities. The Country Rugby League is well aware of the importance of having High Schools playing Rugby League and introducing new players to this great game.
Round 1 of the Country Cup saw teams from Northern Illawarra Schools come together, with U'13 winners Illawarra Sports High and the ever consistent Holy Spirit College winning both the U'15 and Open divisions.
