Little Ripper league

Teams named after the Vodafone Warriors and the Wests Tigers match up in the 2011 Little Ripper competition. The game is adapted for children. 'Minis' (aged five to nine) play eight a side, while 'mods' (aged 10 to 12) play 11 a side. The aim is to ground the ball in the opponents' in-goal area. A modified form of tackling is allowed.
