The New South Wales Police Rugby League is an organisation within the New South Wales Police Force. The NSWPRL has a committee which is elected who oversees the running of the organisation. The current Pesident Stephen McDonald, is also on the executive committee of the NSW Police Association. Assistant Commissioner Alan Clarke, is the current Patron of the NSWPRL.
As the NSWPRL has a history dating back to its formation in 1970, it provides a fraternity of current and retired NSW Police Officer's to involve themselves in Rugby League. The NSWPRL comes under the 'Development' banner of the NSW and Australian Rugby League, with current International Development Officer Tas Bateri, taking a keen interest in the running of the NSWPRL competition and the NSWPRL State team who come under the selection process for the Australian Police Rugby League side.
The goals of the NSWPRL are to provide serving NSW Police Officer's, the opportunity to participate in the Interstate Challenge held presently at Port Macquarie. Those players, coaches, trainers and officials take great pride representing the districts where they work as Police officer's. Involvement also gives serving Police officer's the opportunities in meeting fellow officer's who are passionate about the sport of Rugby League.
All the building blocks of participating in team sport such as; making strong characters, fitness, teamwork, discipline, learning how to accept defeat and enjoying the emotion of winning are positive factors encouraged in this great organisation. Probationary Constable's through to high ranking Commissioned Officer's involve themselves and support the NSWPRL.
Gender is not an issue within the NSWPRL. In the past female Police officer's have formed 'cheer girl squads' to support their respective district. Female Police officer's have also been involved as trainer's and referees.
Thanks for all participants and supporters of the NSWRL, stay with us and enjoy the site.
Current President Stephen McDonald.
