Statement: Statewide competitions update

QRL Statewide competitions update

Author : Michael Hillier QRL Media

Representatives from the Queensland Rugby League and statewide competition clubs today discussed the impact of the State Government’s decision to extend lockdown in south east Queensland until Sunday, August 8.

It was determined this weekend’s Intrust Super Cup (Round 16) and Hastings Deering Colts (Round 13) fixtures will be postponed.

While the QRL will “explore all options” to ensure as many games are played as possible, the league is waiting on further information before making a final determination on whether the fixtures originally set down for this weekend will be rescheduled.

This outcome follows the decision to cancel all of last weekend’s Round 15 Intrust Super Cup and Round 12 Hastings Deering fixtures due to the COVID-19 outbreak in Queensland.

These fixtures (from the weekend of July 31-August 1) will not be rescheduled.

Training in Isolation

Rationale – like any skill, time not doing that movement or coordinated activity will result in a decline in your ability to perform that activity autonomously.

In this time of isolation it’s important to focus on maintenance of your current abilities and fitness, while being inventive to replicate the movement and coordinated activities.

One of the best kickers in Rugby League, who had amazing control over the footy at training and in the game, suffered a grade 2 injury preventing him from kicking for three weeks.

His first few kick practice sessions back were awful, in timing and effectiveness – he used the example of golf and tennis saying the difference between elite sport people and others is that last ½ % in timing and execution.

He got back to his usual in a week.
