NRL’s proposed rookie draft will change face of rugby league and save $64 million

RUGBY league’s proposed rookie draft is headed for the trash can as part of the NRL’s strategic masterplan, which aims to save the code a staggering $64 million.

The Sunday Mail has obtained leaked details of the blueprint being devised by NRL strategy boss Shane Richardson, who has spent the past seven months crafting the document that will map out the code’s future.

Early this month, recruitment chiefs from the NRL’s 16 clubs were summoned to a meeting in Sydney to be briefed on key elements of Richardson’s NRL manifesto.

That's it?

Its still not clear how development will be funded. There is no incentive for the clubs to fund it under this model. Its basically open slather for your top 6 players under 19, and no ability to sign anyone else you develop.

All that will happen is the clubs like the Roosters that already outbid everyone for the best top squads will buy the top 6 juniors as well. At least a draft would have prevented that.

There is definitely big holes in it. Im glad the Roosters will benefit from it. They are so hard done by.

Why would the Raiders continue to fund junior league based on what has been proposed so far?

From 2018, NRL squads will be increased from 25 contracted full-timers to 30. To cater for the additional squad members, the NRL has discussed a $500,000 salary-cap increase for 2018.
The minimum wage, currently $80,000, could swell in excess of $100,000 under the code’s next Collective Bargaining Agreement



Wait a minute how can the minimum wage be in excess of $500,000 when you're adding 5 more players to the squad and only increasing the Salary cap by 500k.

Also means everyone would have a complete pay freeze.

Time to buy old Richo a calculator.

I think they mean 500k for 4x minimum wage players. The cap will go up far more then that with the new deal.

Agreed.

This already happens tbh. It's the reason behind the roosters good returns from their "junior" system.

A draft would have been ideal, this "idea" is just straight up rubbish and horribly confused. It will suck big time.

"Leaked details"

Not "leaked entire and conclusive plan"

So the answer is no, that's not "it", but merely just part of it

WTF did I just read? The disjointed ramblings of a mad man?

Seems like whole chunks of detail is missing, but if that is the plan can I put it to you...junior RL is boned.

To me the best would be if each club got a catchment of roughly equal strength and a grant to support and develop it. The NRL would provide central governance and shared services but the operational side and supporting the junior clubs in the catchment sits with the clubs. Clubs would get bonuses to the senior cap based on measures like growth in playing numbers, school visits etc

The top 6 would be per age group from 16 until 20 and comes out of the catchment. They can only be traded out or transferred out for a fee. Other players in junior sides would be paid fixed expenses and match payments.

Seems another piece of the blueprint has leaked out. Basically country kids wont be able to move to join an NRL club or move to the city until they finish high school. Again it seems to hurt the regional clubs who are already the most disadvantaged.

And handing kids over to other codes.

This will be another huge leg up for the Broncos.

Tackle 2 – NSW Cup gets an unwanted make-over


The vision for the NSW Cup is an expanded competition involving teams from Fiji, New Zealand and regional areas. These outposts will be accommodated at the expense of a like-for-like number of Sydney teams, meaning city-based NRL sides will have to merge their excess players into unaffiliated feeder clubs each weekend.

If they go ahead with this idea then the administration should remove themselves

The idea of a reserve side is to benefit your team. You set in place systems for the players to develop into your structures , so when they are added to your FG squad they have the best chance of a smooth transition .

Canberra should affiliate themselves with Goulburn if they dont have a stand alone reserve team and run that team for NSW cup.

I have always given the benefit of the doubt to Smith and his goons , but they are destroying the game , Its a dangerous game he is playing for the TV rights , calling Fox's bluff has balls but if it fails then its a backward step for the code

Richardson can just go and take Greenberg with him.

Clubs to tackle NRL on development issues after pathways summit

The NRL is about to engage in another battle with its clubs as they meet with the NSW Rugby League from Wednesday to thrash out concerns over the abolition of the National Youth Competition.

Fairfax Media revealed a year ago that the under-20s competition was headed for the scrapheap at the completion of the current broadcast deal. As part of its pitch to clubs, the governing body has told them the move will save them $16 million collectively in costs. The NRL's head of strategy Shane Richardson is working on a "whole of game" manifesto that will include the development pathways for youngsters.

Is there actually a blueprint or are they making it up as they go along?
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

Yes, the lack of anything blue and in print suggests this. Just a series of news article showing whatever the thoughts of the latest executive they've bought on board is thinking.

They clearly don't, but the flip flopping on junior development shows they're clearly insane, or running some sort of misinformation campaign.

It was reported that it was presented to the clubs and they were not big fans. Maybe it's been delayed as a result.

Apparently they also ran a very successful stakeholder engagement and consultation throughout the process of building it.

NRL blueprint for the future

The NRL on Tuesday outlined a proposed blueprint to take the game forward over the next decade.

The plan, drawn up by the Head of Game Strategy and Development, Shane Richardson, is designed to improve player welfare and pathways, upgrade and strengthen the second tier and assist in protecting elite players from burnout.

The strategy will reduce costs for clubs, further grow the game outside the current reach and provide a new level of awareness regarding player welfare as they progress through the elite pathways.

Mr Richardson said Rugby League has an opportunity to extend its reach beyond its current footholds to country Australia, Affiliated States, New Zealand, Pacifica and ultimately internationally.

He said the strategy takes a "whole of game" approach to the challenges of the future.

The key recommendations include:

- Increasing the size of NRL squads to 36 players – including six rookies

- Restricting players from making their NRL debuts until the year they turn 19. No player to be signed with an agent until he is 17 - and contracts for these players should be for a maximum three-year term

- Restructuring the National Youth Competition into a state-based under-20 competition

- Introducing rookie contracts for the start of the 2018 season with each club allowed to sign three rookies each year on two-year contracts

- Revamping and upgrading the State League into a Platinum League to spread the footprint of the competition into all the areas that play Rugby League

- Easing player welfare by considering additional leave, creating a formal International window over an eight-year period and reducing the number of five-day turnarounds

Mr Richardson said the phasing out of the NYC and payments for under-18 players - along with a new business model for the second tier - would result in a $20 million saving for the NRL clubs.

There would be a significant increase in expenditure in the pathways and in particular the second tier by the NRL.

"We are looking to improve and extend the pathways not detract from them," Mr Richardson said.

Mr Richardson said a committee representing the State bodies would help determine the teams which take part in the Platinum League.

He said the models being shown during consultation for 11 teams in NSW competition were only examples to demonstrate how far the game could reach if the new League was established. But no determination had been made on the final makeup of the League.

"We want to give everyone the opportunity to play in the NRL – whether they come from the country, New Zealand, the Affiliated States, Pacifica or anywhere else in the world of Rugby League," Mr Richardson said.

"This strategy is not intended to squeeze anyone out of the game - it is designed to include more participants than ever before."

Mr Richardson rubbished suggestions that there had not been sufficient consultation on the blueprint.

He said meetings had been held with all stakeholders and that consultation was on-going.

"Further consultation with the RLPA and other interested parties will be held before any final decisions are made," he said.

"This is an exciting time for the game…we have an opportunity with the new broadcast rights deal to stretch our vision and allow the game to break out from some of the restraints of the past.

"Most importantly, we have started a discussion about the way forward and that has to be a positive start for the game."
