Yes Hog, Newcastle have also been included. My understanding is that it will be a representative team from their local competition. How it will operate in terms of playing squad, within the interests of the composite Newcastle clubs, if and when their competition resumes will be the challenge.

Dave Dennis went to the nearby Richmond High and played Australian Schools and went on to play for the Wallabies. His senior club was Sydney University and shows how a need there is for a strong Western Sydney based club.
