    Triple-header to launch NRLW season
    https://www.titans.com.au/news/2021/...h-nrlw-season/



    The rescheduled 2021 NRL Telstra Women's Premiership will kick off on February 27 with a triple-header scheduled in Newcastle as part of a blockbuster 2022 draw announcement made on Tuesday.

    After a postponement of the competition's start date in September due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the NRL has confirmed a seven-week competition will take place early next year before a fifth season later in 2022.

    Foundation club St George Illawarra and newcomers Gold Coast will open the season at McDonald Jones Stadium, followed by a 2020 grand final rematch between defending champions Brisbane and the Sydney Roosters.

    Newcastle will go head-to-head with Parramatta to finish the first round before the competition shifts to Wollongong's WIN Stadium on March 6 for a second week of triple-header standalone matches.

    The NRLW will then align with the NRL Telstra Premiership from round three with matches scheduled to be played alongside the men's draw throughout March.

    "We have three new teams, two additional rounds, semi-finals matches for the first time, as well as a great chance to put the elite women's competition - our biggest yet - front and centre early in the rugby league calendar year," NRL CEO Andrew Abdo said.

    "Clearly it was disappointing for us that we were unable to play the 2021 competition this year due to COVID. But with adversity comes opportunity.

    "Next year will be our biggest yet for the elite women's game - with two Premierships, State of Origin, All Stars and a World Cup.

    "Thank you to our broadcast partners and to our loyal naming rights partner, Telstra for helping create a great 2022 schedule for fans.

    "With additional teams and an extended competition, February 27 will mark a new era for the women's game."

    Newcastle's inaugural NRLW side will join their male counterparts and travel to the Sydney Cricket Ground for a round three clash against the Roosters on March 12.

    Parramatta will host a home game against the Titans the following day before the men's fixture gets underway shortly after at CommBank Stadium on March 13.

    The Titans, Broncos and Dragons will all host home games in the final two rounds of the competition before a finals series takes place in April.

    Four teams will advance through to the semi-finals on April 3 with the NRLW grand final to be played on April 10.

    The Broncos are the reigning NRLW champions having won the past three titles since the competition began in 2018.

    More than a dozen premiership-winning Broncos players will return to defend their title while others have shifted to rival clubs.

    NRLW clubs will have until late January to finalise their rosters following the competition's delay.

    Brisbane have four spots left on their roster to confirm while cross-town rivals Gold Coast have two spots to fill.

    The Roosters require another five signings while Parramatta are yet to unveil 11 of their new recruits.

    Newcastle have confirmed just two of their 24 after several players from New Zealand and Queensland returned home in October.

    St George Illawarra have another seven signings to announce following the recent addition of former Jillaroos and rugby sevens star Emma Tonegato.

    The NRLW will be shown live across broadcast partners Channel Nine and Fox League throughout the season.

    A draw for the fifth competition isn't expected to be unveiled until later next year.

    As part of the announcement, the All Stars fixture will be played on February 12 while State of Origin will take place on June 24 at venues to be confirmed.

    Queensland has hosted the past two women's Origin matches on the Sunshine Coast after NSW previously hosted two at North Sydney Oval.

    The Maroons and Sky Blues are level at 2-2 in the head-to-head battle since 2018.

    A Women's Rugby League Team is good but what we really need is a netball team then we would be complete.

    I like the concept of creating a multi-code powerhouse brand.

    The Gold Coast Titans have applied for a licence to compete in the Sapphire Series, tier below the Suncorp Super Netball (SSN) competition with a view of ultimately joining the world’s premier netball league.
    It is understood the Titans will announce their plans, including their inaugural netball coach, next week as the club reveals its vision to become more than just an NRL club.

    Titans co-owner Rebecca Frizelle has long championed women in sport and leadership roles, and is an advocate of the Titans evolving into a multi-sport, community-focused entity.

    It’s a model big European soccer clubs like Real Madrid have successfully implemented.

    On the Titans’ doorstep is the Gold Coast Convention Centre, the venue used for the 2018 Commonwealth Games netball competition.

    Additionally, the Gold Coast is home to a large New Zealand-Pacific Island population, in excess of 50,000, with netball the national women’s sport for both countries.

    Earlier this year a “landmark” broadcast rights deal struck was struck.

    Netball Australia, Super Netball League Commission and Foxtel Group announced a groundbreaking new five-year broadcast and digital rights contract, which will see every Suncorp Super Netball game aired live and ad-break free during play.

    The deal, which runs from 2022 to 2026, will ensure the sport’s elite competition remains freely accessible to Australia’s massive netball fanbase, as netball is the country’s No. 1 female team participation sport.

    The rights package includes:

    — Every game of every round of the Super Netball competition aired live and ad-break free during play on Foxtel Group platforms, including Foxtel and Kayo Sports

    — Two games being available live and free as part of ‘Kayo Freebies’, along with every match of the finals series.

    The new deal is also a major financial boost for Super Netball’s existing eight clubs and extra security for its elite players, who’ll be paid by the league.

    Suncorp Super Netball League to set to resume in 2022 on Saturday 26 March.

    The season will start and finish earlier than previous years due to the 2022 Commonwealth Games in Birmingham, which will be held from Thursday 28 July to Monday 8 August.

    Netball Tasmania has also applied for a licence to compete in Suncorp Super Netball competition next season.
