The Affiliated States Championship is an annual rugby league competition run by the Australian Rugby League involving the four affiliated states (Victoria, South Australia, Northern Territory and Western Australia) plus the Australian Police and Australian Defence Force.

Following the Championship, a Combined Affiliated States (CAS) representative side is selected from the teams to tour the Pacific islands.

History[edit]

The initial Championship had Australian Capital Territory and Newcastle in it because they were the two strongest competitions outside of the Queensland Rugby League and New South Wales Rugby League.

The Championship resumed in 2003 with just the four Affiliated states. The PRLA Australian team joined the competition in 2005.

The Affiliated Championships have over the past few years (2010-2014) been held at Hindmarsh Stadium in Adelaide, however in 2015 they were held in Darwin Northern Territory.

2016 saw the championships return to Adelaide, and were played at Thebarton Oval in Torrensville, with Western Australia winning their seventh consecutive title.

Combined Affiliated States[edit]

On 20 October 2017, a Combined Affiliated States team played the English national team as a warm-up for the 2017 World Cup.[1] England won 74-12 at Perth Oval.[2]
