NZ's 2nd Largest League Comp Kicks Off

April 15, 2021, 8 a.m.

The winter sports season is underway with the TRL starting as NZ's 2nd largest men's rugby league club competition in the country, second only to Auckland. Last season saw only seven teams return to the competition after the nationwide COVID-19 lockdown.

Two of the TRL founding clubs that were knocked out of competition, the Aupōuri Repo and the Ngāti Kahu Sharks, returned to the field in Te Kao for the start of the 2021 season on the weekend for the first time since the Covid-19 lockdowns.

There are hopes to revive the junior rugby league competition but to do it properly it will need more resources and a strong structure. It's important that clubs are able to get their teams to the games and so the next generation can enjoy playing the sport.
