Pre Season Recruitment

Happy New season to you all.  Many of you have returned to work, but there are a number of lucky others who are still enjoying a break.

There has been some significant recent activity I wanted to let you know about, including the production of a Television Commercial (TVC) to promote junior recruitment. The TV commercial is a call to action to the ‘playrugbyleague’ website. I have attached a copy of the TVC for your information.

The TVC will be broadcast from this Sunday in Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne (8 weeks) and regional NSW and Queensland (3 weeks starting in early February) on free to air TV. We are also planning to include coverage in the NT and WA.  It will feature nationally on Foxtel and Fox Sports for 8 weeks.

The ‘playrugbyleagyue’ website has been ‘re skinned’, and all Leagues and clubs reminded of the importance of having their club details up to date.

In addition to the TVC, a promotional flyer is being developed for distribution, predominantly, during Community Carnival. These will be available to Regional Managers and their teams over the next few weeks. A copy will be forwarded to you for your information when it is finalised.

Trent Sutton, the NRL Fan Engagement Manager, has also produced a very professional ‘Little League’ booklet that will be distributed to all players 6 to 12 years as a part of the registration process.

We’re looking forward to having you all back in action and making a difference for the game.
