Jillaroos stars Kezie Apps and Corban McGregor have welcomed the NRL’s new women’s competition but urged details to be expedited amid reluctance to relocate.
The league announced the competition this month but key aspects were unconfirmed, including which teams would be involved and how players would be recruited.
The NRL has received interest from most clubs to set up women’s teams and will begin a tender process in January, which is expected to last around two months, ahead of the competition starting towards the back end of the men’s season.
Cronulla-based McGregor, who played at centre in Australia’s World Cup final triumph over New Zealand, said playing in the women’s premiership was a top goal for her career.
But finding out her future as early as possible was critical for her situation.
“I’m hoping to go somewhere not too far away. I’m not sure what the system is. There may be a drafting system so I might have to go somewhere else,” McGregor told AAP.
