Cairns and Districts Rugby League Wind-up
In aligning with Key Recommendations from Aus Sport surrounding Independence Governance models in which the QRL is endorsing throughout QLD, the affiliated members of CDRL agreed that the adoption of an independent governance model similar to Mackay and that of other rugby league entities would be in the best interest of Rugby League across Far North Queensland.
Subsequently this has seen the official ‘wind up’ of the CDRL on Sunday 21st November 2021. The eleven clubs and referee’s association are now affiliated members of Far North Queensland Rugby league (FNQ RL), a newly established entity in 2021 which governs all competitions across Cairns and Districts moving forward.
This will aid in ensuring FNQ RL are solely responsible and committed to administering the policies and procedures of all Rugby League with professionalism, integrity, and care, thus providing clubs and stakeholders with a streamlined approach and transparent method of communication for all involved.
For all Rugby League matters in Cairns moving forward, please contact Robert White – FNQ RL Chairman.
