Workshops, events and reunions

For years you have trained, laughed, learned and strived together, and there’s no reason that should stop in transition.

Throughout the year we organise workshops, breakfasts and reunions around QLD, NSW, NZ and Victoria. The Men of League also invites you to join their community and connect with local events.

“Play On!” Transition Workshops

How do you make sure your transition is as smooth as possible, and that you’re in a strong position to make the most of every new opportunity that presents itself? You come to our Play On! workshops!

Everything you need to know about transition – delivered by NRL guys who have been through transition for guys going through transition, and informed by the latest research and proven tools and strategies for athlete transitions.

We feel so lucky to have been able to participate in this workshop... Thank you for this workshop, it has been so helpful. 2016 participants


We hold at least 6 of these each year around the different regions in Australia and NZ and we hope to see you there. It’s a great opportunity to stay connected to your former teammates and mingle socially guys you may only have fronted up against on the field previously.

Pre-Grand Final Annual Function


This event is one of the favourites of the year. We bring together guys who are hanging up the boots that year with those who have done so in recent years.

It is a relaxed celebration held on the night before the Grand Final each year. You can look forward to a night of good friends, good food and good fun.

It gets bigger and better every year and we encourage you to come along.

Guys who have attended in the past have valued:

  • reconnecting with former team mates
  • forging new friendships with guys you have played against but never gotten to know
  • enjoying the camaraderie that is unique to those who play NRL
  • networking and connecting with opportunities


Throughout the year and around the different regions we will keep you in touch with various events, such as breakfasts, group training sessions and education opportunities.
