Dates for the postponed 2020 South Coast Monaro 2nd Division season have now been confirmed.
ACT Rugby Union held a Zoom meeting with clubs on Wednesday 24 June to seek consensus on the competition dates and structure, following the announcement that rugby union competitions are able to resume after 1 July.
The following items were decided:
- Round One will be Saturday 18 July
- 10 rounds will be played, meaning everyone will play each other once, but only a few teams will play each other twice
- There will be two weeks of finals. Semi finals are Saturday 26 September, comprising a 1v4 playoff and 2v3 playoff, with winners proceeding to the Grand Final
- Grand Final will be on Saturday 3 October
- Matches will be played with 35 minute halves for the duration of the season, reduced from 40 minutes
At this stage, it looks like we’ll have a seven team competition, following the announcement by 2019 premiers Crookwell in May that they will not participate in 2020.
- Batemans Bay
We expect to have a draw announced early in the week commencing 29 June.
