Throughout the off-season the NSWRL conducted a State of the Game Health Check for the Manly Warringah District Junior Rugby League. This project gave rugby league stakeholders in the Manly District the opportunity to provide input into the game and its future direction.

A major recommendation of the report was the recruitment and appointment of a District Administrator, employed by the NSWRL and working closely with the Manly Warringah District Junior Rugby League Board. The NSWRL is currently recruiting for the position, with an announcement to be made soon.
