This weekend’s round of junior and senior rugby league games, due to be played at Cherbourg’s Jack O’Chin Oval, has been cancelled due to the weather.
“The decision has been made given predictions around the current rain event and localised flooding that may occur,” South Burnett Rugby League president Dave Tierney said on Friday morning.
“The decision has also been made with the safety of all in the rugby league community to ensure travel this weekend is kept to that which is necessary.”
The scheduled Under 14s game between the Kingaroy Red Ants and the Chinchilla Bulldogs, due to be played in Chinchilla on Saturday, has also been abandoned.
South Burnett Eagle Under 15s, Under 16s and Under 17s also have the week off after a decision by the Toowoomba Junior Rugby League earlier in the week to abandon all scheduled games this weekend.
