CRJFA Rosters have beed released for Grading Rounds 2016. Folllow the links on out CRJFA Rosters page. CRJFA will not accept nominations for any new team unless it is a team that will take up an existing Bye in one of the competitions. Remember to look for the traffic lights on this site for the status of each round and note that rostered games do get changed so you should check fixtures weekly. Thanks to Leila Freke for her magnificent work preparing these, a mammoth undertaking! Regrading requests from delegates should be provided by June 1 at the latest. After 5 rounds coaches should be aware of any problems with their grading and this will give Leila a bit more time to “achieve the impossible” and try to get the post-grading season rosters redrawn before the Queens Birthday long weekend.
