NRL Women’s Premiership Set to Launch in 2018

An NRL Women’s Premiership is set to launch in 2018 with six teams in the competition likely to be based in New Zealand, Queensland, regional NSW and Sydney.

“It is going to create some tension, that is for sure,” Greenberg said of the competition for licences.

“I would imagine that almost every one of our NRL clubs would be interested in how they obtain a franchise in year one. That is a good thing as it will add some competition.

“We met with all of our NRL CEOs yesterday and there was huge support for this program and a real appetite for it.”
