The New South Wales Rugby League has today announced that the Jersey Flegg Cup competition will not resume in 2021.
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak across the Greater Sydney Region, all of the NSWRL’s major competitions will not be completed.
The Jersey Flegg has been suspended since early July, with 15 rounds having been completed.
“With the current Public Health Order in force until at least 28 August, and there understandably being no current NSW Government sanctioned roadmap out of the lockdown for sport, the Board was left with little option but to cancel our Major Competitions,” NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden said.
“In reaching their decision, the Board considered its obligation to provide participants with a safe environment to play sport. The NSW Government’s health advice, particularly the state of infection rates and vaccination rates, made it difficult to provide that environment in the immediate future.
“The NSWRL thanks our participants, officials and volunteers for their contribution to our Major Competitions this season. We urge them to remain safe, adhere to the COVID-19 safe guidelines and we look forward to their return in 2022.”
