    Rugby League has laid another foundation in the delivery of the game’s strategic plan, today implementing its whole-of-game development structure under the NRL banner to create one of the largest game development units in Australian sport.

    NRL General Manager for League Integration and Game Development, Mr Andrew Hill, has said that the centralised development program will ensure that 1.6 million children each year take part in Rugby League activities by 2017.

    “The move to a national development model and a single development brand is an essential step for the game of Rugby League and is vitally important to our future,” Mr Hill said.

    “This is a very exciting time for all involved as we are able to move the wealth of knowledge and experience of our 400 development staff into one unit, which will also create a stronger presence across all areas of the game.

    “By centralising our operation, we will be able to continue to improve our first contact programs and participation initiatives while providing greater support for our staff working on the ground implementing the programs.”

    Under the new structure Game Development Regional Managers, will lead the delivery and implementation of game development programs within their designated geographical region, including Victoria, Western Australia, South Australia and the Northern Territory.

    In 2012, Rugby League-based programs have engaged 1,409,946 children with 598,191 children having played in a Rugby League game across clubs and schools with 430, 638 students playing in regular school competitions and formal gala days.

    Origin - disconnection of it between it and the national team
    Lower Grade - NSW Cup Winner vs Qld Cup Winner (for ARL Cup)
    Internationally - Kangaroos and Kiwis to play 5 tests a year(minimum) (if not a country that does earns the right to call itself no.1)
    Emu's to do pacific tour 2014(plus US, Canada and West Indies)
    Kiwi a's European tour in 2014.
    Visa versa 2015.
