Community Rugby League Memorandum
RE: QRL Rule 4.1.6
Wednesday, December 2, 2020
During the COVID-restricted 2020 season, Part 4 and Part 5 of the QRL Rules were reviewed in line with the QRL governance processes.
The QRL Board have endorsed changes to the QRL Rules which will be updated prior to the start of the 2021 competition season.
It is noted registrations for the 2021 season opened on December 1 and as such, this memorandum serves as notice of changes to QRL Rule 4.1.6 directly relating to the transfer of junior representative players.
All other parts of QRL Rule 4.1.6 remain unchanged.
With immediate implementation, the below extract from QRL Rule 4.1.6 should now be applied across all junior registrations as:
4.1.6 Transfer of Junior Registration
For players aged 16-18, a junior representative player as defined in these rules is a player who is participating in a QRL performance academy program delivered by an Intrust Super Cup club or equivalent. These players shall not be eligible to apply for a transfer of registration in the football season following the participation as a junior representative player.
Rules relating to the transfer of junior registration for players aged 13-15 must be defined in the accepted rules of the relevant Local League.
Administration of these rules is at the discretion of the Local League via a competitions committee with no avenue for appeal via the relevant Region.
