NELSON Bay Sharks Rugby League Club continue to expand their playing ranks with a ladies blues tag team and an under-19 men's rugby league team.

Club president Scott Dews said the Sharks were hopeful of establishing a developmental pathway for up-and-coming players in the Port Stephens area in the 2020 season.

On Wednesday, November 20, Newcastle Rugby League CEO Matt Harris was due to update the Sharks and other clubs in the area on the merger between the Country Rugby League and NSW Rugby League. The landmark move, approved on October 18, that will see rugby league in NSW governed by one body for the first time in more than 80 years.

Wednesday's information session will have all league supporters, clubs and groups on the same page for the 2020 season.

The Sharks will announce their coaching staff in the coming weeks. The playing rosters are almost complete, however interested players can still sign up. Email
