NSWRL applauds move to resume senior sport

The NSWRL is pleased to announce that senior sport competitions, including the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership, have been cleared to resume from 1 July after the NSW Government’s latest announcement today.

The decision follows last week’s announcement that community football for children in competitions up to and including under 18 comps will also resume next month following the advice from government and health authorities.

NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden said the decision today was welcome news for Rugby League and all winter sports across the state and would help the community continue to heal after strict measures were introduced to control the threat of coronavirus.

“This is another great result for Rugby League across the state of NSW and I thank the NSW Government for allowing us to resume,” Trodden said.

Trodden said that training (in groups of up to 10) can begin as soon as clubs have complied with the NSWRL’s COVID-19 regulations that have been developed in line with the Australian Government’s “Return to Sport” framework.

More details about specific competitions in the regions and districts across the state will be finalised in the near future.
