Welcome Back Junior Footy!
Following our recent announcement of Senior rugby league returning, Rugby League Ipswich (RLI) are excited to announce junior competitions will also be restarting in August 2020. With the recent easing of restrictions by the QLD Government, the investment made in insurance costs by the Queensland Rugby League and the overwhelming support from the RLI community, we will be running a 10-week junior competition.
The junior clubs participating in a shortened 10-week round of fixtures are the Goodna Eagles, the Northern Suburbs Tigers, the Redbank Plains Bears, the Swifts Bluebirds and the West End Bulldogs. These 5 junior clubs are recruiting now so please contact them directly if you are a new or existing registered player in 2020 requesting a portability permit from your existing club.
Rugby League Ipswich are investing heavily and reducing the costs to clubs by assisting with operational costs together with the Ipswich Rugby League Referees Association who are making a similar investment in reducing the costs of match officials to support our Ipswich Clubs play footy in 2020.
Our main priority through these times is player safety and club sustainability. If you find your club is not participating, temporary portability permits are now available to another club within Ipswich. This will help clubs that choose not to return in 2020 to retain their players for the 2021 season.
RLI would like to thank our volunteers, players and wider rugby league community in supporting us through this difficult and challenging time. We look forward to seeing you at the footy on the first weekend in August!
· Round 1: 1st/2nd August 2020
· 10 Round fixture season only
