The New South Wales Cup is a rugby league competition for clubs in New South Wales previously known as the NSWRL Premier League. It has a history dating back to the NSWRFL's origins in 1908, starting off as a reserve grade competition. It is now the premier open age competition in the state. The New South Wales Cup, along with the Queensland Cup, acts as a feeder competition to the National Rugby League premiership.

It is contested by reserve squads of NSW-based NRL teams and also includes sides representing teams that once competed at the first grade level in the NSWRL Premiership but do not field teams in the NRL competition. Since 2007, the competition has included a New Zealand-based side, the Auckland Vulcans.

History

The New South Wales Cup, run by the NSWRL, has been known by a variety of names and operated in several different ways since the inception of the NSWRL Premiership in 1908. Between 1908 and 1996, the competition was known as Reserve Grade and was competed for almost exclusively by reserve squads of each of the NSWRL Premiership Clubs, competing with that Club's name and colours. With the advent of the Super League war, and the resultant split competition in 1997, the NSWRL reconfigured the competition as the Presidents Cup. From 2002 until 2007, the competition was known as the NSWRL Premier League until it was reorganised into its present form.

'Stand-Alone' Clubs

With the competitions having merged back together, and with six NSWRL Premiership clubs having merged into three new NRL clubs (St. George Dragons and Illawarra Steelers; North Sydney Bears and Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles; Balmain Tigers and Western Suburbs Magpies) the competition became known as the First Division and included these sides competing under their original name and colours.

The inclusion of these non-NRL clubs (along with Newtown Jets in 2000) in the competition signalled a move away from the 'reserve squad' competition it had become and became increasingly differentiated from the NRL competition with games played at non-NRL venues such as North Sydney Oval, Newtown's Henson Park and Western Weekender Stadium at St Marys.

Another trend that began during this period was the phenomenon of NRL clubs 'out-sourcing' competing teams, with several NRL clubs choosing not to field sides in this competition and rather field either merged entities (as in the St Marys Penrith Cougars and Balmain Ryde Eastwood Tigers, both formed with NSWRL Jim Beam Cup sides) or form agreements with another club to take their place in the competition, those players being eligible for NRL selection, such as the agreement between Newtown Jets and Sydney Roosters for the 2006 season.

2007 Expansion

In 2007, Bartercard Cup club Auckland Lions joined the competition. The Lions play their home fixtures before New Zealand Warriors matches.

2008 Expansion

In 2008 and 2009, Jersey Flegg Cup club Central Coast Storm fielded a team in the competition. The team was based on the NSW Central Coast but acted as a feeder club to the Melbourne Storm.[1] In addition the Panthers were replaced by the Windsor Wolves and the Sharks were replaced by the Cronulla-Sutherland Cobras. The Canberra Raiders withdrew from the competition on 1 August 2007</ref> The Newcastle Knights also announced a Joint Venture with the Central Charlestown. The team used the original Central Newcastle Rebels Name.[2] The Parramatta Eels also formed a joint-venture with the Wentworthville Magpies to act as their Feeder Club in the competition from 2008 onwards.[3] The Saints decided to no longer run a Reserve Grade Side, but would use the St George District Rugby League & the Illawarra District Rugby League competitions instead as their Feeder Team/s.

2009 NSW Cup Season

Two new teams have been added to the competition. These two new teams will have both previously played in the Jim Beam Cup. The Shellharbour City Dragons, previously known as the Shellharbour Marlins, will be the St George feeder side. The Bankstown Bulls, who were known as the Sydney Bulls, will act as the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs feeder side. Bankstown will still field a team in the Jim Beam Cup. The Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles have withdrawn from the competition and will have a feeder team in the Queensland Cup. Newcastle has also withdrawn from the competition, discontinuing the link with the Central Newcastle Rebels.

Radio/TV Coverage

From 2010 Hawkesbury Radio 89.9 will broadcast every Windsor Wolves game (including games in Melbourne and Auckland) while Triple H FM broadcast the game of the day on a Saturday and from 2011 2ccrfm will broadcast every Wentworthville Magpies home game.
