The NSWRL has been forced to make the difficult decision to cancel all of the remaining regional NSW competitions due to the latest Public Health Orders.

While the NSW Government has recently announced easing to some restrictions in various areas of NSW, the NSWRL has been advised that the Public Health Orders do not allow for organised or competitive community sport to recommence.

The present ambiguity relating to vaccination targets and related requirements for Community Sport was another key factor considered by NSWRL before confirming the cancellation.

“I thank all stakeholders for their tireless efforts in trying to get community football back on the field but unfortunately it is no longer feasible,” NSWRL Head of Football Robert Lowrie said.

“While COVID has thrown up many challenges to our sport, there are still plenty of achievements to be proud of with a strong participation base of 108,000 players leading into 2022.

“I thank all our participants, officials, coaches and fans for their contributions this season. I urge them to stay safe, observe the COVID-19 safety guidelines and look forward to seeing them back in action in 2022.”

The latest decision means that all Major and Community Competitions across NSW have now been cancelled in line with NSW Government advice after the COVID-19 outbreak in June.
