SLAY the Dragons, tame the Tigers, contain the colts and batter the Bulls - that will be the goal for the Western Rams juniors when the season 2021 representative season gets underway in February.
New South Wales Rugby League announced its junior representative draws for the 2021 season on Friday, confirming the return of the Laurie Daley Cup and the Andrew Johns Cup.
Those regional NSW competitions for under 16s and under 18s did not reach a conclusion this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
In further good news for the Western Regions' leading juniors, NSWRL also announced the return of the SG Ball Cup, Tarsha Gale Cup and Harold Matthews Cup.
"I can't think of a better way for the NSWRL to start its season than by showcasing the talented young players in our junior representative competitions who could go on to become the next superstars of the game," NSWRL chief executive David Trodden said.
"I know there will be plenty of people who will be looking forward to getting out and watching the footy again, but I would encourage them to still respect and adhere to social distancing guidelines.
"The matches are always great spectacles and there are plenty of players involved who already possess great skills considering their age. I can't wait for February to roll around and I'm really looking forward to kick-off."
