As a part of the 2013 campaign, over 44 clubs and four schools were hand-picked by the NRL Game Development Staff from across Queensland to play at halftime of the Broncos home games in HART Sport mini-league. Of the 44 clubs rewarded this year for their efforts, 16 clubs were from rural Queensland and the remaining clubs were local Brisbane Clubs or Broncos Affiliated Junior Clubs.

There were many memorable Mini League moments in 2013, here’s some to share:

Round 10 – Women in League Round: Broncos extended an invitation to two local schoolgirl’s teams to play at half time. With the inspiration of the crowd and the raw talent of Girls Rugby League on show, it certainly kept the Broncos crowd on their toes during halftime.

Round 22 – Premier sponsor of the Brisbane Broncos, Arrow Energy showed their generosity and support of Junior League in rural Queensland by making it possible for clubs from Chinchilla JRLFC, Miles JRLFC and Moranbah JRLFC to participate at half-time. Arrow made it possible for these kids with some driving over 12 hours to be part of the action.

Round 23 – Close the Gap Round – Deadly Choices and the Brisbane Broncos joined forces to give a special opportunity to four clubs from highly indigenous populated areas across Queensland to participate at Half time of the Broncos v Eels game. Clubs from Cherbourg, Wondai, North Ipswich and Redbank Plains turned up the heat at halftime.

Round 26 – this round was focused on supporting and rewarding the Junior League Club affected by the floods earlier this year. Teams from Bundaberg and Laidley made the trip to Suncorp Stadium and were mesmerised by the opportunity to play on Suncorp Stadium in front of a overwhelmed Broncos crowd.

We congratulate and thank all Junior Rugby League Clubs involved in this year’s HART Sport Halftime Mini League. To find out how your local Junior Rugby League club can have the same opportunity in 2014, please contact Sarah Walker on 0411 159 463 or swalker@nrl.com.au

For the first time, women’s Touch Football will be played during an NRL Finals Series with the champion Eastern Suburbs Sydney Roosters taking centre-stage tomorrow during the NRL Telstra Premiership Finals Series double-header at Allianz Stadium.

The reigning Vawdon Cup champions will play an exhibition match against the Manly Sea Eagles, just a month after the NRL and Touch Football Australia announced an historic sporting partnership representing the biggest boost to participation and game development in the history of either sport.

“Tomorrow’s match is a great demonstration of why the new partnership between the NRL and Touch Football Australia works so well,” NRL General Manager General Manager League Integration & Game Development, Mr Andrew Hill.

“Rugby League is moving into our finals series and the Touch Football season has just started.

“People can now get involved in our sport all year round.

“The women’s match between the Roosters and the Sea Eagles couldn’t be a more fitting curtain-raiser leading into the second match of Saturday between the Roosters and Sea Eagles.”

The local NSW women’s touch competition hosts 77 teams from across Sydney and surrounding areas, competing for the Vawdon Cup.

The game will commence at 6:06pm.

The success of the 2013 X-Blades National Youth Championships on the Sunshine Coast this week has highlighted the importance of the new partnership between Rugby League and Touch Football Australia.

Rubgy League legend Petero Civoniceva, NRL General Manager General Manager League Integration & Game Development, Mr Andrew Hill, Touch Football Australia Chief Executive, Mr Colm Maguire, and World Cup-winning Jillaroo and NSW Touch Football Champion Emma Tonegato will come together today at the Championships.

The event, held at Stockland Park on the Sunshine Coast, will see 36 teams, including four from New Zealand, competing in the 18s Boys and Girls divisions and will conclude on Saturday, 14 September.

As well as her World Cup success with the Jillaroos, Tonegato was part of the NSW Touch Football Women’s 20s 3-0 victory over Queensland in the 2012 State of Origin Series.

“Players like Emma are the perfect example of the opportunities available for young players across both games,” Hill said.

“Emma is just one example. Several players at this championships play at the elite level of both sports, including NSW twins from Wagga Wagga Adam and Matthew Clune, who also play SG Ball with the Steelers, and Jeremy King, Benji Marshall’s younger brother.”

McGuire added: “The recent partnership established between the NRL and TFA will provide players at an elite level more options as well as extending opportunities for newcomers to the games all year round.

“Our aim is to create Australia’s largest sporting community and the hard work is well and truly underway.”

Civoniceva, who coached Tonegato in one of the Jillaroos’ final sessions before leaving for the UK earlier this year, will be at the Championships tomorrow to spend time with players and coaches.

McGuire, Hill, Civoniceva and Tonegato will be available to the media at 11:15am on Friday, 13 September, at the Chairman’s Lounge at Stockland Park Stadium.

As your season comes to a close, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for choosing to play Rugby League this year.

I hope that no matter the result, you have enjoyed playing and that whether it be your first or one of many seasons playing, you’ve had the time of your life.

Since joining earlier this year I’ve had the pleasure of representing the game at different events and irrespective of the nature of the event, what continues to shine through is the enjoyment people get from Rugby League.

As we quickly move towards the business end of the Telstra NRL Premiership with 8 teams qualifying for their chance ‘to be the greatest’, I want to wish every team and their fans the best of luck. Whether you get a chance to attend a game or are watching from home, I hope that you enjoy what I know will be another thrilling Final Series and Grand Final.

The Rugby League action continues after this with the World Cup kicking off in late October in England where 14 teams will be hoping to wrestle the trophy from the Kiwis as current champions. I hope you join me in setting your clock to catch this wonderful exhibition of the best Rugby League talent has to offer on display.

As we look to 2014, there are plenty of exciting initiatives and plans we have to make Rugby League even better and I hope to continue to have your support as a player and a fan.

Within this email is a message from Tim Sheens, the Holden Kangaroos Coach. Tim’s message echoes the thoughts of everyone inside the NRL and I hope that you get a chance to enjoy his message to you.

Tim Sheens Video Message: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pKT8PYHLwMQ

In signing off, a huge thanks again for playing, all the best for the rest of 2013 and I hope to see you running around the footy field again next year.

Regards,

Dave Smith
Chief Executive Officer
