Reintroducing Jersey Flegg

The Jersey Flegg Cup is back in 2018 after a 10-year absence, with the NSWRL reviving the historic competition following the cessation of the NRL-run under-20s National Youth Competition.

The competition is named after Harry “Jersey” Flegg, who played for the Eastern Suburbs in 1908 and 1909, and was a prominent administrator of the game up until 1960.

Ten of the 12 clubs will enter a team under their NRL brand, with only the South Sydney Rabbitohs (North Sydney Bears) and Canberra (Mounties) affiliating with their feeder club for the competition:

Newcastle Knights
Manly Sea Eagles
Wests Tigers
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs
Penrith Panthers
Parramatta Eels
Mounties
North Sydney Bears
Cronulla Sharks
St George Illawarra Dragons
New Zealand Warriors
Sydney Roosters

I would be surprised if they were triple headers. The Jersey Flegg comp is not going to be on tv so I doubt they will have three games. I think there is more chance of having Jersey Flegg as a curtain raiser when there is no Mounties.

Our away games at Penrith and Campbelltown have NSW Cup curtain raisers too but not Mounties. I think our game in Brisbane has a Q Cup curtain raiser.

There are 3 home triple headers.

What do you base that on? The Jersey Flegg draw hasn’t been been announced.

Really interested to see how many of the young guys turn out in the Mounties side.

Murchie will definitely be there starting in the 2nd row.
Guler will grab a bench spot. Stefano Hala might. The starting Rotation is probably something like Knight (8) / Hunt (10) / Bateman (13).
Sebastian Kris looked at ease in the trial and should lock down a centre spot all year.
Sitiveni Moceidreke should be there somewhere given Mounties lack of depth on the edges after losing 3 starting players.

1. Brad Abbey
2. Michael Oldfield
3. Sebastian Kris
4. Ed Murphy
5. Sitiveni Moceidreke
6. Paul Roache
7. Cooper Bambling
8. Liam Knight
9. Siliva Havili
10. Royce Hunt (if he doesn't get a first grade spot)
11. Makahesi Makatoa
12. Jack Murchie
13. Luke Bateman (c) (if he doesn't get a first grade spot)

14. Sam Duggan (c)
15. Corey Horsburgh
16. Dunamis Lui
17. Emre Guler

Should be better than last year. That spine is better than 2017 and the trial showed our depth is good this year.

Edit: Made some changes based on the trial and seeing some players running around for other club's reserve grades.
