2017 was the final year of the NRL’s under-20s competition.

During the 10 years of the National Youth Competition, the Canberra Raiders were one of the most successful sides as they were crowned minor premiers on two occasions and also claimed the inaugural premiership.

To mark the end of the competition, the club appointed a three-man panel consisting of David Hamilton, Peter Mulholland and Barry Molyneux to select the Raiders Greatest NYC Team.

The full team has now been named. Who do you think is the best player named in the team?

  1. This proves the irrelevance of the NYC competetion. If they were so dominant it didn’t follow through to first grade.

    • Not the irrelevance, but the flaws in having the NYC as the second tier competition. 20 is just too young for most to make the next step.

      • Absolutely correct eels47 – The biggest flaw once again displayed by the NRL is that there is a place for the NYC but it needs to co exist with reserve grade. The crap that there will be too many players etc is a farce! If anything it will give everyone the opportunity to try to make it on the big stage! Apart from the obvious being funding or reasons us general public are not aware of, there should be 3 levels existent being NRL, State level and NYC.
