RELEASED: Group 2 Rugby League season 2020 draw
SEVEN clubs will contest Group 2 rugby league's 2020 season.
On Monday night all clubs were part of a meeting to nominate teams for the competition, which kicks off with round one after Easter on April 18-19.
The Orara Valley Axemen announced it will not compete in the 2020 Group 2 Rugby League competition citing a lack of players.
The club announced the news after informing the Group 2 general meeting it was unable to field a first grade side.
The most recent withdrawal, following that of the Nambucca Roosters, leaves seven clubs contesting premierships in the senior grade.
This will create a bye for one club each week, around the three weekly scheduled matches.
Group 2 rugby league officials are currently working on the draw, which should be released in coming days.
The clubs to contest the competition include:
- Bellingen Magpies
- Coffs Harbour Comets
- Grafton Ghosts
- Macksville Sea Eagles
- Sawtell Panthers
- South Grafton Rebels
- Woolgoolga Seahorses.
