16 National Rugby Teams The National Rugby League (NRL) headquarters are in Sydney, which also serves as the northern home of the St George Illawarra Dragons and is home to 9 of the 16 National Rugby League teams (Sydney Roosters, South Sydney Rabbitohs, Parramatta Eels, Cronulla Sharks, Wests Tigers, Penrith Panthers, Bulldogs, and Manly-Warringah Sea Eagles).
The other 2 teams are in Auckland, New Zealand – the New Zealand Warriors and the New Zealand Knights. The Warriors were established in 1956, while the Knights were formed in 1998. Both teams play their home games at Mt Smart Stadium.
In addition to the 16 NRL teams, there is a second division known as the Intrust Super Premiership NSW which consists of 8 teams. These teams are made up of former first grade players who aren't selected by their clubs to travel overseas so they can play in the NRL. The ISPS NSW premiers then meet the NRL's criteria for promotion to the top flight. The previous season's second placed team will also be promoted if they meet the criteria. If not, then the third placed team will move up instead.
Finally, there is a Women's league called the NRL Womens' Championship. This is an annual competition between the 4 top ranked NRL clubs with attempts to win the title. The club with the most points at the end of the season wins the title.

The Sydney Roosters have been a dominant force on the Rugby League scene since 1908, winning fifteen premierships in total—the most recent being 2018/2019, when they became the only team in NRL history to win back-to-back titles. The Roosters play their home games at the famous "Rooster's Run" stadium that they share with rugby union side Sydney Roosters.
The club was founded as Mosman RSL by former players of the then New South Wales Rugby Football League (NSWRL) team after they moved to Gosford for the 1903 season. The name "Roosters" came about because all the original shareholders were retired police officers who enjoyed drinking beer and roosting birds so the club name was an obvious choice. They played in red and white vertical stripes based on those of the NSWRL until 1976 when they changed their strip to blue and yellow, the same colours as Sydney's rugby union side. In 1982, the club relocated to its current home ground at Olympic Park before returning to Gosford two years later. Since then, they have won eleven more titles which makes them the most successful club in the competition.
They are also the most valuable sporting franchise in Australia with a value of $70 million according to Forbes, making them the second most valuable sports team behind Melbourne Storm.
The club has won a record thirteen league titles, six Copa Mexico crowns, and six Campeon de Campeones cups. America has won 10 FIFA recognized club trophies in international tournaments, the most for a club from the CONCACAF area... first-team squad.
