    Warriors coach Nathan Brown wants to see an under-20's competition reintroduced to the NRL

    Warriors coach Nathan Brown wants to see an under-20's competition reintroduced to the NRL

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    Australian Rugby League Commission chairman Peter V'landys has flagged a potential return of it, following a disparity between teams and game results this season.

    The abandonment of the under-20's comp is believed to have resulted in a lack of depth and made it difficult for clubs to develop and retain young stars.

    It was replaced by state-based competitions in 2017.

    Brown welcomes anything that develops young players.
