🏉 NSW Juniors State Champs are CANCELLED 🏉
With the escalation in the COVID-19 situation and the uncertainty surrounding the near future – it is with regret that we have come to the decision to cancel the 2020 Positive Rugby Foundation NSW Junior State Championships & the Rugby 1st Girls NSWJRU State Champs.
This decision was not taken lightly but we need to be aware that the safety of all our players and officials is paramount. Plus our Zones and Districts need ample time to cancel or defer travel and accommodation arrangements and obtain refunds or credits where they can. Also the travel restrictions will severely impact our interstate teams. We also have to look after our host clubs and venues in their planning – as well as the councils that support these events.
So as to give all our stakeholders some confidence and certainty in an environment (when neither is in ample supply) we have made the call to cancel the State Champs.
We'd like to thank all our host clubs (Camden Rugby, Dubbo Junior Rugby Club Inc, Orange Emus Rugby Union Football Club, Orange City-Rugby, West Harbour Junior Rugby, Narrabeen Tigers Junior Rugby Club, Hunters Hill Rugby Union Football Club), councils (Orange City Council, Dubbo Regional Council) and sponsors (Genesis Proprietary Trading Pty Ltd, Estilo Travel, Rugby 1st & the NSW Positive Rugby Foundation) – we hope to see you all back in 2021.
**Note this is not for the Positive Rugby Foundation NSW U10/U11 State Gala which is scheduled for July (which is scheduled for 18th-19th July). We aim to give you a further update regarding this tournament by the middle of April. Thanks to Central Coast Junior Rugby Union & Central Coast Council.
Very tough times – please stay safe and look after each other. Rugby communities are strong and supportive and we will be back on the field at some stage.
