Regrettably but not surprisingly we are writing today to confirm the decision of the SJRU Board in regard to our SJRU XVs and Frosty 7s competitions. Unfortunately because of the continued restrictions and uncertainty about when and how we will exit the current COVID 19 lockdown in Greater Sydney (and NSW as a whole), the SJRU is left with no alternative other than to cancel these competitions for Season 2021.
NSW Rugby Union (NSWRU) and its Affiliate Unions have confirmed the cancellation of all metropolitan Season 2021 Winter rugby competitions, including (in addition to the SJRU) NSW Suburban Rugby Union, Sydney Rugby Union (including Charter Hall Shute Shield), Women’s Jack Scott Cup, Regular Schoolboy Competitions in term 3 and the Illawarra Zone Junior and Senior competitions.
SJRU remains committed to running its Spring 7s competition for girls and boys. We will, subject to government health requirements, do all we can to offer this competition in Term 4. We will be in touch with clubs as soon as greater clarity is available about returning to play and confirm that we have already started planning for Season 2022.
Please take care, follow the health advice and we look forward to seeing you around the fields.
