The Zambia Rugby Union (ZRU) has announced the restart of the National Rugby League, which had been halted.
In a message to teams on Saturday, ZRU head of competition Enock Shikabeta stated that the league will resume on August 28.
Due to a spike in Covid-19 cases and deaths throughout the country, ZRU suspended all league games in mid-June.
The union has given clubs permission to begin training ahead of the league’s restart.
‘Note that league games will start on 28 August with week 9 games and end on 2 October 2021, and as such clubs are directed to resume training in preparation for resumption of games,’ stated Shikabeta.
‘Further be guided that we will be sharing guidelines from the medical committee prior to resumption of games,’ Shikabeta said.
Defending champions Red Arrows were leading the main league with a two-point gap when the competition was suspended at Week 8.
