COVID 19 UPDATE 1 May 2020 Kia Ora Koutou, 1st of May today and Senior Rugby League grades would have been lacing up the boots tomorrow for the 5th round of the 2020 season had the coronavirus pandemic not shifted the world as we knew it- I hope everyone is keeping well at this time. This email is to inform you that Winter team sports are still waiting for the NZ Government to decide at what Alert Level contact sport can be played and when team preparation can commence. There has been speculation by some codes that this could occur at Alert Level 1. At an online meeting with New Zealand Rugby League CEO Greg Peters reinforced that this has not been confirmed and asked that this is conveyed to our Clubs to avoid misinformation. It was anticipated by SportNZ that a Prime Ministerial announcement today would provide us with the information we have all been waiting for. Unfortunately this has not occurred. Below is a criteria and guidelines for sport and recreation that can be currently be conducted at Alert Level 3. There are reports of some teams (no specific code) breaching the current 3 rules, please ensure that club members are adhering to these restrictions and staying safe. From phonecalls with club representatives we understand there are varying degrees of anticipation as to what lies ahead for our sport this year and what timelines will allow what formats. CRL have a number of scenarios prepared and once we have confirmation of when contact sport and/or preparation can begin we will inform you and commence discussions with Club Presidents. Hopefully we will be in touch with this information soon. Stay well.     COVID 19 UPDATE 6 April 2020 Kia Ora Koutou, We hope you and your family are coping well during this time and no doubt have other priorities to work through during this lockdown, this is to provide an update on developments regarding rugby league and some decisions from New Zealand Rugby League pertaining to Representative and International rugby league for 2020. Please see the extract below that was sent to the Zones and Districts: NZRL extract: The NZRL Board met on Friday evening and confirmed the cancellation of all NZRL Tournaments and Competitions for this year. This is following concerns expressed by some of you regarding the undue additional financial burden this would place on you given the very uncertain revenue lines at present. ii)   It is also in recognition that the rebuild of the game will be from the grassroots up and representative football should not be the priority at present. iii)  As previously advised international matches have also been cancelled for 2020 at this stage. Extract finishes   This means that the NZRL Youth tournament 15’s and 17’s, the NZRL Premiership for the Canterbury Bulls and new Women’s Premiership competition are effectively cancelled. The delayed start to the 2020 Club season is still scheduled for 2nd May and this will still be reviewed 17 April and is subject to Government restrictions and guidelines. There is every chance that the Club season could be delayed further and CRL have a number of contingencies planned and will be in consultation with Club Presidents when a clearer start time or with alternative formats depending on time available. As you will probably appreciate there is so many unknown variables with this pandemic and as such this is the only information that we can offer at this time. Please keep safe.
