Stuart, who left Parramatta to coach the Raiders after the sacking of David Furner, has wasted no time stamping his authority on his new team, training them in 40C heat and sending them to aweek-long elite training camp. The former NSW and Australia coach has seen big potential for McCrone at hooker. Faith inMoses to deliver title MOSESWigness has taken over the reins again at Brothers Rugby League club for the 2014 season. Wigness, who coached the club for three years and won the 2010 and 2011 premierships, replaces Anthoiny Castro who had held the position for the past two seasons. The clubs seniors sign-on day is at Airport Tavern today from 1pm. Brothers spokesman John Adams said the clubwanted to regain the premiership that they lost to Palmerston last year. New rules to endmass debates MANLY coach Geoff Toovey says captain Jamie Lyon wont have to change his on-field approach to referees despite recent NRL rule changes. Lyon and Canterburys Michael Ennis are seen as two of the games leading debaters when it comes to arguing withmatch officials. But they are set to be stymied by a new law that limits where andwhen captains can speak to refs. Under new rules captains will only be able to speak to refs during a stoppage in play.

Lachlan schooled by Shark RUGBY LEAGUE ByDOUGBOOTH MacKillop Sharks centre Levi Russell with student Lachlan Miller at the merger announcement yesterday Picture: JUSTIN SANSON LACHLAN Miller wants to play senior rugby league when he grows up. The MacKillop Catholic College student discovered plenty of ways to help him reach that goal from the now MacKillop Sharks hardtackling centre Levi Russell yesterday. Lachlan, 13, and Russell, 22, were integral parts of the launch to merge the Sharks with the Palmerstonbased college. I like rugby league because of the teamwork that is involved in playing, said Lachlan, who has been playing the game for four years. It is not just a one-man game. I like running with the ball and scoring tries. Russell said young players such as Lachlan were the future of the 13-a-side game. We are looking for a premiership this season and building links such as this is vital for the future, he said. College principal Loretta Graham said MacKillop was trying to build a community spirit through sporting organisations and this was another step forward. David Graham is the Year 8 music co-ordinator at MacKillop but his other passion is rugby league. Growing up in Cairns, he played his first rugby league in Queensland and last year he was with the Palmerston Raiders. However, as the brainchild behind the merger of the school and club, he has new allegiances. The Palmerston demographic is much different to Darwin, Graham said. Queensland and NSW influence the culture. Graham said the merger would help provide a grassroots pathway that had not existed before in rugby league in the Northern Territory. It is important that we try and bridge the gap between school and club, he said. The Sharks will hold their senior sign-on at Mary MacKillop School today from 10am. Read an exclusive interview with Darwins Joel Romelo in tomorrows SundayTerritorian. see cents or pay the price THE NRL has been gang tackled in the dash for dollars across womens sport, with a new AFLW pay deal exposing how far rugby league has been left behind. A News Corp investigation into womens pay in Australian domestic sport has confirmed cricket as the most lucrative pathway for female team sport athletes, with netball also leading the charge. Pressure is mounting on the NRL to drastically increase its investment in the womens professional game with the average wage for an NRLW player just $10,000 compared to AFLW players, who are earning on average $47,407 under a new agreement announced this week. The NRLs spend of less than $2 million on female contracts is dwarfed by the AFL, which is spending a whopping $25.6 million now it has expanded to a full 18-team womens competition. What is most exasperating for womens league players about languishing in last place on the pay rankings, is that television ratings are impressive and junior participation numbers surging. Rugby league is one of the fastestgrowing womens sports in the coun try at the grassroots with participation rates directly linked to the advent of the NRLW climbing at about 18 per cent year on year, a faster rate even to Australian rules participation growth at 17.3 per cent. Whats more, the NRLW this season produced better TV ratings (average audience 64,000) than the comparative juggernaut that is the Womens Big Bash League (46,000) across the Foxtel Group. Yet female cricketers are the highest paid in the country with an average wage of $86,456, just ahead of Super Netball ($75,167), while rugby league stars like Sarah Togatuki from the Roosters have struggled to hold down jobs as they are forced to combine work with pursuing their sporting dream on a minimum wage of $8000. Todd Greenberg, the former NRL boss and current head of the Australian Cricketers Association, says womens sport has become a fierce battleground, and financial investment is the only way to win the war. I hear this debate in other sports about youve got to be able to find the commercial terms before you start paying the females and I think that needs to be flipped around, Greenberg said. Youve got to invest in the beginning, and invest in that talent pipeline and that pathway and cricket is an unbelievably good example of this. Professional sports in this country are effectively waging a war on talent. You cant sugar-coat this any more we are all looking for the very best athletes in this country. Premiership stars Millie Boyle and Tamika Upton have just become the NRLWs first six-figure players by signing $100,000 deals with the Newcastle Knights to pioneer a new mechanism which allows clubs two marquee signings, with only $16,000 of that counted in the salary cap. But the AFL has trumpeted that up to 40 women could pull $100,000 deals under a new pay deal next season. Rugby leagues minimum wage of $8000 is the lowest among the major codes. Women earn almost half of WNBL ($15,000) and soccer ($16,334) while AFLW ($39,184), Super Netball ($43,000) and cricket ($49,051) pay at least four times as much to their lowest contracted players. The NRLW only has a five-week regular season, compared to the AFLW increasing to 10 and crickets one-day competition boosting to 12. Super Netball and the A-League soccer have 14 matches, and the WNBL has a total season of 21 regular games. There are fears the best rugby league athletes could be lost to other sports if the gap is not rectified in the NRLWs new collective bargaining agreement this year. If were stuck in this space for too long, thats when well start to lose talent to other codes, said Lina Caccamo, general manager of elite women at the Rugby League Players Association. While these girls might not be necessarily profit turners in the traditional sense at the moment, theyre benefiting the game hugely in a number of other areas. We want to be industry leaders for womens sport and that includes pay, and we want young girls to be able to grow up being like thats what I want my full-time job to be.
