Country Rugby League's proposed Riverina womens 9’s tournament ‘at risk’ of cancellation

A scheduled Riverina women’s rugby league tournament is at risk of failing to launch to due low registration numbers.

The proposed Riverina 9’s is slated to kick off on October 27 in Temora before touring through Leeton, Albury, Darlington Point and Wagga.

A finals round is scheduled for December 1 in Junee, however, event coordinator and CRL regional administrator Dean Sutherland fears the project might not get off the ground. 

“Unless we see an increase in registrations, this event will be at risk of not going ahead,” Sutherland said.

“We need to get the message out there that this is going on and that we want girls to get involved.

A CRL comp is in doubt due to a lack of numbers.

“It’s just about trying to get a pathway going for these younger players.”

“We’ve posted on social media trying to get more attention and we’ve already had some feedback, but we’d love to see more people register.”
