Sunshine Coast 'remaining positive' for return

Sunshine Coast / Gympie Rugby League remains optimistic about getting back on the field in 2020, following the COVID-19 pandemic.

SCGRL president Glenn Peatling, fronting local media, said clubs "have got their own issues at hand and need to respond to the wants and needs of their players". 

"Here on the Sunshine Coast, both the juniors and seniors are trying to remain positive and have an outlook that we will try and get some sort of football back on the Sunshine Coast," Peatling said. 

Peatling hinted at the potential for the League to host all senior fixtures at one venue to assist with following the QRL's COVID-19 guidelines.

"The Sunshine Coast / Gympie Rugby League might take over running the competition at one venue where there is less impact on volunteers and only needing one set of hygiene and sanitation procedures," he said 

"Hopefully we see some football being played."

Furthermore, Sunshine Coast Junior Rugby League issued a statement about their potential return after meeting with all clubs on Monday.

"As the current COVID restrictions are constantly changing on a weekly basis, it was agreed by all clubs that a further review of the 2020 season will be held on June 15," it read.

The positive news on returning to play comes after the recent cancellations of senior 2020 competitions in Cairns, Bundaberg and Toowoomba.
