The New South Wales Rugby League is set to announce tomorrow that all rugby league, from under-6’s through to the NSW Cup, will be postponed until June.

The NSWRL held a meeting this morning, where it was determined that all competitions would be suspended until mid-way through the year as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

Junior competitions have already begun holding trial matches in anticipation for the start of the season over the next few weeks, however plans have all been put on hold.

The NSWRL and Queensland Rugby League are aligned in the strategy, with a formal announcement expected by the two state bodies on Wednesday.


Despite the suspension of competition from grassroots football to reserve grade, the NRL are still pushing ahead with plans to continue the premier competition behind closed doors.
