Glen Innes and Yass to Host League Tag Championships

Updated: July 9, 2019

Country Rugby League will introduce a new format for the 2019 League Tag Representative Championships, with the tournament set to be held over two weekends in Under-16’s and Opens divisions this month.

On Saturday, 20th July at Meade Park, Glen Innes, the Central Coast, North Coast, Northern Rivers and Greater Northern regions will compete, while Walker Park in Yass will host Greater Southern, Monaro, Riverina and Western regions.

The Final will be held on Saturday, 27th July, with the winners of the Northern and Southern Pools from each respective division set to battle it out.

CRL Women’s Participation Officer Kylie Hilder is looking forward to the Championships and believes incorporating two age groups is yet another positive step for the Women’s game.

“Having an Under-16’s as well as an Open division this year will showcase the regional talent coming from NSW and allow those younger girls to follow a representative pathway and keep playing League Tag,” Hilder said.

“League Tag numbers are strong throughout regional NSW and having the most talented players go up against neighbouring regions will make for an exciting tournament.”
