Roos to withdraw from NSW Rugby League Cup competition

The Wyong Rugby League Football Club Group Board of Directors has made a decision to end its participation in the NSW Rugby League Cup competition.

This decision will see the end of the participation of the Wyong Roos in the NSW Rugby League Intrust Super Premiership competition at the end of the 2018 season. The Wyong Roos have participated in the NSW Rugby League (NSW Cup/ISP NSW) competition since 2013, having made two Grand Finals over the past three years. In a statement posted on their website, the Roos’ Board of Directors outlined the reasoning behind their decision.

“The philosophy of the Wyong Rugby League Club Group remains a simple one: Our Club, Our Community, Our Commitment,” the statement read. “Our Club consists of 55,000 members, our community is our lifeblood and always has been. “Our commitment is to empathy and compassion, consistently underpinned by a passionate team, socially responsible business techniques and processes, and engagement with others. “Our departure from the NRL second grade competition will enable us to focus even more on our commitment to our community-based charity, the Roos Foundation, Wyong district junior and school rugby league development, and junior sport in general.

“It will allow us to apply our resources towards the betterment of the Wyong Roos’ Senior Rugby League Operation, the Central Coast Rugby League Competition, the multitude of soccer and bowls players who depend on us, and most importantly, our members, the source of our resources,” the statement concluded.
