COVID-19 and a mounting injury toll truncated the senior rounds of Far North Coast Rugby Union with just four games taking place across the top-three grades.
Top-placed first-grade side, Wollongbar Alstonville (WAR), achieved a 33–7 win over Lismore, who are yet to win this season.
The first-grade game between Byron Shire Rebels and Ballina was forfeited by Ballina as they didn’t have enough fit and able prop forwards.
The Casuarina and Casino clash was called off after covid took hold in the Casino camp.
Second grade was similarly affected with the only game being WAR against Lismore. WAR won 62–17.
In the President’s Cup Mullumbimby’s home game against Kyogle was also called off owing to the number of covid cases in the visiting side.
Next long weekend there is no rugby.
On the following Saturday, June 17, the Byron Shire Rebels will have their first game at the Recreation Grounds (Byron Bay) when they host WAR in a battle for the top of the table.
