Greenberg said the new program was the result of extensive consultation with clubs, states and the elite women’s playing group.
"What we have come up with is a comprehensive women's rugby league program, that takes into account balancing personal, work and playing commitments, as well as providing a continuous pathway to participate in local, national and international rugby league year-round," he said.
Harvey Norman will continue as the major partner of the Jillaroos and Women In League Round, whilst Holden will be the major partner of the Women’s Premiership and State of Origin match.
An announcement on NRL Clubs aligned with the 2018 Women's Premiership teams will be made in the new year.
