This collaboration, scheduled to kick off in 2024, solidifies a dynamic connection between Mounties Rugby League and the esteemed Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles NSW Cup.

As part of this strategic alliance, Mounties Rugby League’s Sydney Shield and Ron Massey teams will function as crucial feeder clubs for the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles competing in The Knock-On Effect NSW Cup.

This initiative fosters a seamless progression for Mounties Rugby League players from grassroots through to the pinnacle of the sport, offering a comprehensive development pathway.

Building on our recent collaborations, including the Harvey Norman Women’s partnership, this alliance with the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles showcases our dedication to shaping the future of rugby league and creating a holistic pathway for player development,” said Mounties Group President John Dean.

The partnership not only underlines Mounties Rugby League’s commitment to nurturing talent but also exemplifies the Mounties Group’s dedication to providing diverse opportunities for players within its rugby league programs. This collaboration comes on the heels of the recent announcement of Mounties Rugby League’s Harvey Norman Women’s partnership with NRLW Canberra Raiders in early 2023.

“This partnership with the Blacktown Workers Sea Eagles marks a significant milestone for Mounties Rugby League. It solidifies our commitment to providing a seamless pathway for our players, from the grassroots level to the elite stage of rugby league. We are excited about the opportunities this collaboration will bring and the positive impact it will have on the development of our athletes,” said Mounties Rugby League Manager, Alex Miller.
