The NSWRL has welcomed the move by NSW Community Rugby League Association (CRLA) members to vote unanimously to accept an amended constitution, which will see all metropolitan and regional Junior Rugby League members adhere to standard governance, protocols and competition practices.
The move continues the work being done to unify the state since the NSWRL and the CRL came together at the end of 2019 and forms part of the One State Strategic Plan (Competitions).
The changes apply to all metropolitan and regional associations across NSW and will also allow for regional Junior League members to be able to apply for a position on the board in 2022.
“It’s another exciting milestone for NSW Rugby League, I’d like to congratulate their Chairman Matt Brady and the Community League Board for their foresight and enthusiasm to enable membership and representation from Leagues across the state” said NSWRL Community Manager Peter Clarke.
“The changes will help build the Community Rugby League Association and their voice while giving respect to both regional and metro districts.”
