18th Man originally began as the NYC Database in late 2012 to cover the NRL’s under-20 National Youth Competition. The original aim was to have profiles, stats and information on every player, and, eventually, an extensive archive of every NYC match played since 2008.
In 2017, the Holden Cup ended and was replaced by state based under-20 competitions. In late 2018, after six years as the NYC Database, the site became 18th Man.
The NYC may be dead but the site lives on, covering under-16 to under-21 competitions from throughout the rugby league world.
This site is in no way affiliated with any league, club or organisation unless explicitly stated. All statistics and records shown on the site are based on data available to and/or collected by us. They are not necessarily a complete, accurate or official representation of a player’s junior career or a team/competition’s history and should be used as a guide only. A question mark (?) in a player’s profile indicates that statistic is not available. For most games on the site we have the final team list for each side but when that’s not available, we do use the squad named during the week. This will be noted where applicable.
