What will happen if social distancing and other Government guidelines are in place for the commencement of the 2021 NRL Season?
Whilst the Club is hopeful there will be no social distancing and other Government guidelines in place for the commencement of the 2021 NRL Season, we are continuing to work on a Social Distancing Action Plan to ensure we’re prepared for what the 2021 NRL Season may bring. This includes understanding what strategies other Sporting Clubs in Australia and around the world have put in place during the COVID-19 period.
The Club will continue to provide communication to all Members on this matter as soon as it becomes available. As such, it is important all Members keep their contact details up to date to ensure the Club can continue to provide important information relating to the 2021 NRL Season and 2021 membership.
