Harvey Norman Women’s National Championship

In June this year (1 – 3 June) the National Championship took place, featuring more than 120 players from across the country, competing across six teams.

The Harvey Norman Women’s National Championship has acted as the lead-in competition prior to the NRL Holden Women’s Premiership teams finalising their playing roster, ahead of the Premiership in September.

Prior to the Championship, a Talent ID was held on 31 May, allowing players from all sporting backgrounds, both inside and outside of rugby league, to test their skills and see if they had what it takes to play and perform at the elite level of rugby league.

The Championship involved six teams, with an Australian Defence Force team competing for the first time in the history of the event.

Other teams competing included:

  • Queensland City
  • Queensland Country
  • New South Wales City
  • New South Wales Country
  • Combined Affiliate States
  • Australian Defence Force

The Championship was run in conjunction with the QRL's State Men's Championship, together with the QRL's Women's Emerging Carnival.
