Harvey Norman Women’s National Championship

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

The Harvey Norman Women’s National Championship will act 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 is being held on 31 May (registrations are now closed), allowing players from all sporting backgrounds, both inside and outside of rugby league, to test their skills and see if they have what it takes to play and perform at the elite level of rugby league.

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

Other teams competing include:

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

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

The National Championship will be live-streamed via the QRL website.
