The New South Wales Rugby League has today announced the 2022 City and Country Under-16 and Under-18 squads.

The sides will meet on Saturday May 14 at 4 Pines Park, with the day being headlined by the City-Country Women’s open age game.

In 2021, City defeated Country in both age groups at Bankwest Stadium, winning 34-12 in the Under-16s and and 46-6 in the Under-18s.

Like last year, the sides are not selected using State of Origin criteria instead being selected on which competition a player played in.
