Wellbeing and Education
All players were involved in the NSWRL Wellbeing and Education program in 2019. The program consisted of compulsory education for players around concussion, anti doping, respectful relations, drugs and alcohol, digita technology, mental health and career wise.
The Canterbury Cup and Jersey Flegg players completed a series of questionnaires over the year to measure wellbeing, with follow up interviews and conversations about life outside of football. Those players were also required to be engaged in either career or study, with the NSWRL ensuring a no work, no study, no play approach.
