There are no crowds permitted at any NZRL National or Youth Competiton games for the remainder of the four week season.

A blanket no crowd policy across the country is the safest option due to the continuously changing nature of Alert Levels for different regions participating in our competitions.

Our priority is to keep our players and communities safe while ensuring our competitions can continue.

We understand this is frustrating for those residing in regions currently at Alert Level 2, and we apologise for the inconvenience this causes.

However, some venues and local authorities within these regions still operate at a higher Alert Level despite eased gathering restrictions.

The current unpredictability of Alert Levels across the country means a blanket no crowd policy remains our best option in ensuring the safety and wellbeing of all involved in our competitions.

This coming Monday, we will provide further detail on Waikato and Northland teams due to Northland’s move to Alert Level 3 at 11:59 pm tonight.

Any person feeling unwell or presenting cold, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms should immediately contact their doctor or Healthline on 0800 358 5453.
