The Sunshine Coast Rugby Union premiership is scheduled to be decided at the end of October.
Election day will double as Grand Final Day for season 2020.
SCRU Competitions Manager Mike Aronsten told PattmanSport that the season will last 11 weeks before the finals proceed as they traditionally would.
“The A grade, and the women’s, and the Colts will play each other twice,” Aronsten says.
“The reserve grade will play each other once because we’ve got 10 teams in reserve grade.”
“There will be one bye for the A grade teams and two byes for the reserve grade sides just to make that all even out.
“Then we’ll have our normal semi finals on the Saturday and Sunday for the 1 v 2, 3v 4; then we’ll have our elimination final on the following Saturday; and our Grand Finals on that Saturday the 31st of October.”
The October period would normally be used exclusively by cricket.
“[F]ortunately we’ve been in discussion with [local] [c]ricket.
“We’re not going to conflict with anything that they want to do.
“They’re going to start their season late.
“But we fortunately we won’t be conflicting with anything they’re doing.
“So that’s really good.”
