RE: 2021 NSWRL Community Competition Update – Greater Sydney, Central Coast, Wollongong and Shellharbour



For distribution to Clubs,



We hope you are safe and healthy in this difficult time and missing the regular interaction that any normal Rugby League season would allow.



In follow up from an update provided by NSWRL CEO Dave Trodden and Head of Football Bert Lowrie this morning NSWRL has scheduled a meeting for Monday 16 August with affected League administrators in the Greater Sydney, Wollongong, Shellharbour and Central Coast areas. It is our intention at this meeting to advise the NSWRL determination regarding 2021 community competitions.



Whilst we understand that given the current lockdown measures and COVID rates the prospects for returning to play in some areas this season are not encouraging, any final decision will be deferred until after the Monday August 16 meeting. All major winter codes including Rugby Union, Soccer, Hockey, AFL and Netball (as well as ourselves) have requested that the Office of Sport provide us with a lockdown recovery roadmap for community sport on or before August 16. This will allow all of us to assess the roadmap before any final determination regarding the future of our competitions is made. Naturally, we will share with you any information we receive in this regard



We would also like to emphasise the high potential that a roadmap to ease restrictions will be staggered based on the relevant risk for specific districts. If this is the case it would enable areas with minimal risk of COVID to return to sport earlier than others. As a sport we don't want to make an early decision that may prevent competitions returning where it is safe to do so.



Thank you for your patience and understanding as we await the roadmap before making any decisions regarding 2021 Greater Sydney Community Competitions.

The NSWRL would like to advise most Major and Community Competitions across the Greater Sydney Region (Sydney, Central Coast, Wollongong, Blue Mountains and Shellharbour areas) will be suspended for another week in line with the latest NSW Public Health Order (to 16 July) to deal with the public health risk from the COVID-19 outbreak.
 
This small suspension in competitions under the current “Stay at Home” orders will see all clubs involved in affected Major Competition matches receiving one point for a draw (COVID draw).

The finals series for the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership will now move straight to a Grand Final between Minor Premiers Central Coast Roosters and Mounties on Saturday July 24 at Leichhardt Oval.

Please note that Community Competitions in Regional NSW will proceed as scheduled and are not subject to stay at home orders but are subject to the other current NSW Public Health Order provisions and must still must adhere to COVID-19 safety protocols.
 
All suspended competitions across the Greater Sydney Region are scheduled to resume on the weekend of 24 July, giving teams the opportunity to train before returning to play, but that will be subject to the NSW Public Health Order which applies at the time.
 
“The NSWRL has taken decisions around its Major Competitions and Community Football to cancel them for another week in line with the latest advice from the NSW State Government and back the state to get on top of the COVID-19 outbreak,” NSWRL Head of Football Robert Lowrie said.
 
“It is important for all our participants, officials and spectators to continue to observe the guidelines that have been put in place to remain safe and help get Rugby League back on the field as soon as possible.

 
“Furthermore, I would like to emphasise for our regional areas and competitions, not in lockdown, our competitions will continue playing, but we need to maintain our vigilance in encouraging COVID-19 safety.”
 
The Major Competitions involved include Rounds 16 (3-4 July), 17 (10-11 July) and 18 (17-18 July) of The Knock-On Effect NSW Cup, Jersey Flegg Cup, Ron Massey Cup and Sydney Shield; and Rounds 11 (3-4 July), 12 (10-11 July) and 13 (17-18 July) of the Mojo Homes Cup (Illawarra).
 
The changes made to Major Competitions and Pathways football include no games or training for clubs in Greater Sydney, Central Coast, Wollongong, Blue Mountains and Shellharbour.
 
Rounds 13 (3-4 July), 14 (10-11 July) and 15 (17-18 July ) of the Denton Engineering Cup (Newcastle) will continue for clubs not affected by ‘Stay at Home’ orders while those affected will be deemed a COVID draw and receive one competition point each.
 
The Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership will recommence with the Grand Final on Saturday 24 July between Minor Premiers Central Coast Roosters and Mounties at Leichhardt Oval.
 
The decision around the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership was made in consultation with the NRL to ensure the workload for women players was managed appropriately before the NRLW starts in late-August.
 
Players involved in the Harvey Norman NSW Women’s Premiership Grand Final will be permitted to train with their clubs on Thursday and Friday and will train with their NRLW clubs from Monday to Wednesday.
  
As Lowrie said, Regional NSW Leagues and Clubs outside the above-mentioned areas are permitted to continue playing and training but must adhere to COVID-19 safety restrictions and be aware of potential impacts.
