SEABL,QBL,Big V,SBL with Waratah/CABL level about the same.


I note that the top couple of teams in each conference can compete with each other and the bottum few fropm each conference are all pretty poor.

SEABL, QBL, SBL, BigV, Waratah, CABL.

That is based on the quality of the top half of the competition in each leagues since the standard drops a lot for the bottom teams although I think even the very ordinary Canberra SEABL team from 2012 could give most teams in Waratah or CABL a workout.

There's no such thing as the ABA anymore, In order of standard you have:

NBL: "THE" National League.
SEABL: Semi national league (covers teams from 5 states).

Then all the State based Leagues:

BigV: Vic
SBL: WA
QBL: Queensland
Warratah/CABL: NSW
ABL: SA
Tassie League. Tas.

Tassie has a mid week league which is a pretty good standard.

@ #393273 you can't include SEABL if you're going to rank the state based leagues as its not a state based league, you have to leave SEABL out because it combines teams from 5 different states.

So for state leagues id rank them:
1) BigV: Vic
2) SBL: WA
= 3) QBL: Queensland
Warratah/CABL: NSW
5) ABL: SA
6) Tassie League. Tas.

There is no chance in hell Big V is better than QABL. The top 3 teams in Big V are ok, the rest is utter garbage.

SEABL is clearly strongest league outside NBL in Australia.

I would say the order after that is tight.
QBL
SBL
Big V
ABL
Waratah
Tas

re: ABA Leagues in Australia Ranks?

Of based on the top few teams from each team and excluding SEABL i think it would be.

QBL
SBL/Big V (Hard to split)
CABL/WARATAH (Both aren't very good!)

Waratah > ABL but both are poor compared with QBL/SBL/BigV

SEABL is clearly better than all the state based leagues & probably not far off the NZ NBL.

NZBL/SEABL are roughly on par..maybe a little bit better depth in the NZBL as each team has 2 good imports and pretty solid locals.

Big V isn't deeper than SBL or QBL, yet...

With Big V adding Corio Bay and now Werribee they are getting deeper. If they can add another two strong clubs over the next 2 years then the Big V will be clearly the best league behind SEABL.

Big V lacks depth...they had 4 strong teams in 2012 then the rest were very poor.

Just read Eltham just changed coach so really it becomes a two horse race in 2013 (Ringwood & Corio Bay) - Hence when rating the leagues they are a little behind in depth compared with SBL/QBL who field 5/6 strong teams.

Wonder why the Eltham coach pulled the pin and a new coach was appointed that night... Smells very fishy.

Haven't heard re Eltham coach but think they will struggle next season.

I know most of the players are looking elsewhere....they have 4 of the better players in Beston,Norton,Cuffe & Macdonald who will be chased pretty hard by other clubs.

re: ABA Leagues in Australia Ranks?

Question

What to the other leagues play in a season?
We play a pitiful 18 with some teams training more than they play
SA clubs ( everyone of them) take junior funding and pay for a sub standard comp , with sub standard refs and a diminishing volunteer base.

BSA don't promote it ( no press) and as a result they have no sponsors of it
Grand final this year , while a great game, had really poorly advertised of the game, incorrect details on the ticket web site and low crowd numbers

BSA has no sponsors , soon to be homeless and no vision for juniors to Seniors.

Cubs need to go to BSA and ask what they are going to do about fixing the problem.

SANFL a few years back, went to oval rationalisation till clubs got their act together, now lets be really honest, how can we run a comp that competes with some mentioned here in the current venues we have.

Seriously, we will never compete till we get some of the above fixed and a governing body that will promote the games, lift the profile of the sport and do something about the offering for the spectators.

Otherwise, we can keep putting up topics like these and then get the same rhetoric every year.

Merry Christmas

Ok NWBU isn't stronger or even on par with Big V teams, I coached in Waratah and NWBU i would take my City of Sydney local premier league team down there and smoke those teams. With all farness my local team would beat most Waratah teams.

Reason Waratah league is so weak - Take Comets,
Have a few strong players but you look at there Premier league there and most of the teams best players refuse to play in Waratah now. Age/money/time or just be honest the coaching (such in the way Luke Overs) - players in sydney dont want to be told off and do sprints and shit for no money.

North Sydney was considering movinig into SEABL, they have 4 King player or Development players. they realised that the costing of bringing an import in plus adding to there 2 training session a week would have players dropping out.

People in Sydney find committing to sport to hard if tehre not getting something for it
