Woy Woy Lions resume training

Woy Woy Lions Rugby Union club has resumed training for the new 2020 Central Coast Rugby Union season.

Non-contact training began on Thursday, June 25, including passing and kicking drills.

Training which will include scrums, line-outs, tackles and all contact activities will resume at the start of July, with the first round of games scheduled to be held on Saturday, July 18.

Central Coast Rugby Union president Mr Larry Thompson said the starting datewas open to variation, depending on the coronavirus situation.

"We are totally dependent on the decisions from the NSW Government, NSW Health and the various rugby authorities for what happens in the future," he said.

"However we are hoping we can commence on July 18."

This year, the season will be shortened, with nine league games and a finals series.

The Grand Final will be held on Saturday, October 10, one month later than the usual date in September.

Lions Juniors vice-president Mr Gary Morrison said Central Coast Council had given the club extra time at Woy Woy Oval to finish the winter season before the summer sport handover.

Mr Morrison said he had encouraged players from under-6s to seniors to participate this season.

The club currently had about 40 fewer junior players than last year.

Registration is open and will remain open throughout the season.
