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.
