Seems like plans are well advanced to have a statewide and specific Aboriginal League competition, from as early as this year. It is planned that there will be 14 clubs and that each will be tied to an NRL club as a "feeder". (I presume it isn't practical to be a feeder to Auckland and one of Townsville/Brisbane/Melbourne) I wonder if this is fair dinkum and if the carve up of feeder clubs has happened? There's a rich vein of talent up Morree way - I'd be hoping Manly could stitch something up that way. PJ what are you hearing on the grapevine?
