UPDATE: August 12, 2020 

In light of New Zealand’s move to Alert Level 2 (not including Auckland) rugby league activity (training and playing) is permitted, ONLY if clubs and facilities can abide by strict health requirements below, until further notice. 

These requirements include what ‘must’ be done such as:  

  • A contact tracing register must be kept for all participants and spectators and able to be accessed quickly. NZRL recommend IDMe app or Government COVID Tracer app.
  • Physical distancing is required at all times, this is mandatory for those not participating on the field (2 metres). 
  • As it stands, Rugby League activity must abide by 100 person gathering / spectator limit (subject to Government updates). 
  • Participants should wash and dry their hands before and after playing; equipment should be sanitised and dried before and after playing. No one should be participating (or leaving home) if they show any signs of being sick, displaying symptoms of COVID-19, awaiting a test, or if required to self-isolate.  

As of the 24th of August, it is mandatory to wear a face mask on public transport.

NZRL is monitoring the situation closely and will continue to update you with the latest information, subject to ongoing Government updates. 

Please refer to your appropriate District and Club for more specific information on upcoming competitions and fixtures.  

All Auckland rugby league activity (training and playing) remains postponed until further notice, subject to Government updates. 

We appreciate this is an unsettling time, however we remain vigilant and prepared to tackle this collectively once again. 

Thank you for your co-operation and understanding.
