CWRL has put out a mayday cal

CENTRAL West Rugby League has put out a mayday call for much needed sponsors as the competition faces its toughest challenge yet - survival.

The league relies heavily on community sponsors from across the Central West to support clubs based in five different areas around the region.

CWRL is the governing body that facilitates rugby league in the towns of Winton, Blackall, Ilfracombe, Barcaldine and Longreach.

The CWRL recently put out a distressed cry for vital sponsorship to enable the league to send A-grade and under-20s teams to the Outback Muster and also two juniors teams to compete at the Central Queensland trials.

A-grade and under-20s players would obtain the chance to represent outback Queensland if they made it to the muster.

For the juniors, attendance at the CQ trials is a must if they wish to obtain representative honours.

CWRL is currently looking for at least four more sponsors to come onboard.

A minimum of $2200 from four sponsors would allow CWRL to send teams to the muster as well as the CQ trials, a vital part of the survival of rugby league in the Central West.

The CWRL said unless it was received by December 10, teams would not be able to attend the games. If any business or company is willing to assist, phone president Butch Lenton on 4657 1256, or 0438 361 038.
