The fate of the 2020 Warwick and District Junior Rugby League season remains in limbo despite the Queensland Government moving to stage two of the lifting of restrictions.
President Deb Scanlan said the executive remains committed to providing a shortened season if possible for kids across the seven clubs and has been working with the Queensland Rugby League in an effort to see this happen.
The QRL has provided a road map on the return to community football in their QRL Return to Play handbook which was released on June 1 and will be presented to the WDJRL board on Friday.
Ms Scanlan said the WDJRL would study the guidelines set out in the Handbook to establish the viability of a shortened competition. The board has already put the call out via their Facebook page for volunteers to assist should the season go ahead. The response from parents and supporters has been very positive.
Meanwhile the WDJRL are holding a series of fund raising raffles to help cover the cost of new representative jerseys and clothing ordered for the 2020 Chargers teams. With no Rep football this season the gear will be held over for use in 2021.
