The Wankers story won’t be remembered as the most horrific and painful in rugby league history.
But it will be remembered for its impact on the sport.
In 2015, when the New South Wales club was relegated to the bottom of the ladder, it was the first time in Australian rugby league’s 80-year history a club had been relegated from the league.
The club’s story went viral and it was not long before it was picked up by the Australian Rugby League Commission.
The story of Wankering was picked for an article on the NRL’s website.
It is a story of how the Wanks failed to win a premiership and how the club’s success was a tragedy.
It was a story that has been repeated by the NRL in the past.
There was a time when the NRL would never have allowed a club to be relegated from its competition, and in the last decade, the NRL has had a number of clubs go down in the game.
In the mid-1980s, it wasn’t uncommon for clubs to be dumped in the third tier of Australian competition.
But in 2005, when former Melbourne Storm player Shane Flanagan was dumped from the NRL after a disappointing NRL campaign, the league finally recognised that there were too many clubs with no chance of winning a grand final.
It took a while to get to the point where the NRL realised that the NRL needed to find a way to support the game and provide a pathway for new clubs to compete.
In 2013, the NSLPA and the Australian Football League agreed to a 10-year plan that would help create a pathway to the next generation of players.
It started with a new league that would run for 10 years and would involve a $3.5 million fund to build a new grassroots league and support the growth of the game in Australia.
The NRL and the AFL would provide funding for an ambitious plan to run the new grassroots program for five years.
The plan was to run it in a phased manner over a five-year period, but it was a big task that required the support of a large number of stakeholders, including the NPLPA, the AFL, the NSW Government and a range of other stakeholders.
We needed the AFL and NRL to help to create a sustainable structure for grassroots soccer in Australia, and the league was very keen to work with us to ensure that we were supporting it in that way.
The new league was to be run under the auspices of the NLLPA, and would be overseen by the National Soccer League Advisory Council.
The council would advise on all aspects of the program.
This is where things began to go wrong.
The NSL was the only professional sports league in Australia that was not owned by an association.
The board of directors of the AFL had been appointed by the NSW Premier, the Federal Government and the Federal Rugby League to manage the NRL.
The AFL and the NRL had different agendas.
The former was about making sure that there was a pathway from the grassroots to the first team and that the AFL was a champion of the sport and a promoter of the values of the A-League.
The latter was about supporting clubs that were struggling to get their feet on the ground and was about creating a platform for the future.
The league had an interest in being involved in the new league, and they were keen to have an agreement in place that would support the NLSAC and the NELC in the future, in which the AFL provided funding for the NCLA, the governing body of the league, to run and manage the program, as well as providing support to the NBLAC.
But the AFL refused to agree to these terms.
In early 2014, the Victorian Government approached the NNLAC to see what the NLCA’s view was.
They made a formal complaint and the Victorian government took it up with the AFL.
The Victorian Government also wanted the NLAC to look at whether the AFL could operate the NLT for a period of time, to provide support for clubs that needed to build up their rosters and to build relationships with the clubs and players.
The Australian Rugby Union and the Sydney Roosters, who had a very different agenda, agreed to the proposal.
The following year, the new AFL-NRL partnership was announced, which would see the AFL take a lead role in the NELSAC, and run the program from a grassroots perspective.
The partnership is based on the same principles as the current partnership, which includes the NGLA, NELAC and AFL, and has been in place for a number, but not all, of the partnership’s 12-year terms.
There are two components to the partnership.
The first is the support for grassroots development.
The second is a funding model that is similar to the current model.
We are currently working with the NLEA, which is a federal organisation, to create the model.
It is a way of providing support for
