This is a very general update from Central Coast rugby union in regards to the CCRU competition.
The situation is still the same in terms of any more rugby on the Coast this year. We are currently in lockdown as you all well know, and it seems things just do not seem to be getting any better on the covid front.
While the end of the 2021 season is not looking how we expected, the CCRU Board still has every hope that we will be able to finish the season with some rugby being played. It is all so disappointing for all rugby people on the Central Coast - we were building up to what was to be one of the closest and most hard fought seasons ever in all grades.
The CCRU Board still live in hope of rugby this year, but as stated above, time is running out because of the current covid situation. The Board will make a decision on the season at the end of this month, going into the first week of September. At the start of September we should know more about where we stand although things may be starting to become inevitable. Until we know more from NSW Health, the NSW Office of Sport & NSWRU, no decisions can be made. We are aware a lot of other nearby rugby competitions and other local codes are abandoning their seasons, but we still live in hope.
NSW Rugby will make an announcement early next week about the various Sydney rugby competitions, but here on the Central Coast any further decision will not be made until the end of August/early September.
