Following the State Government announcements, new restrictions from 11.59pm tonight effectively mean no community sport (football or netball) for seven days – this means all scheduled WRFL fixtures will not take place this weekend.
It remains at each club’s discretion as to whether to train this evening – however given the current circumstances clubs are encouraged to consider cancelling formal training this evening.
The league informed all clubs at the beginning of the season, if any match(es) or entire round is cancelled due to COVID-19, the match(es) shall effectively be removed from the fixture and no points will be allocated to either team.
No cancelled home & away match(es) will be rescheduled, and the match ratio will be applied to the ladder for that division and grade for the remainder of the season.
While it is clearly disappointing to be in this position, we remain hopeful this ‘unplanned bye’ will quickly make way for the resumption of the 2021 season next weekend.
