The Queensland Rugby League is pleased to outline its plans to strengthen female pathways for aspirational participants throughout the state.

On the back of a rise in participation numbers and other significant developments for women’s rugby league, clubs have been invited to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) to participate in a new open-aged female competition in 2020.

The competition will commence at the same time as all other statewide leagues, including the Intrust Super Cup.

It will be played over a period of between seven and 10 weeks and will include a finals series that is scheduled to conclude two weeks prior to the Holden Women’s State of Origin match, providing a key period for players to press their case for state selection.

This year alone, the QRL secured $400,000 in funding from the ARLC to drive women’s and girls’ competitions and programs throughout the state, with funding allocated to the following:
  • Queensland Country Representative program
  • Queensland Outback Junior Girls (Under 14/Under 16) program
  • Open Age Local competition support in Northern, Central and South East regions
  • Northern Region Senior Women’s Representative program
  • SEQ Junior Emerging Player Program
  • Statewide Women’s High Performance Program

That Fox channel often has indigenous games on - from all over the place.
