It will come as no surprise to most that conducting the Presentation Luncheon on Sunday 5 September is proving untenable. Should the ACT lockdown be lifted on 2 September, one business day is not sufficient to prepare for a luncheon of 50-80 people.
The executive has therefore made the difficult decision to indefinitely postpone pending the decision from Brumbies on what they are doing with the senior season. There are two likely outcomes, as follows:
1. Delay the recommencement of the season. In this case we will seek to reschedule the presentation luncheon to align with the major semifinals.
2. Abandon the season. In this case, 2021 Grand Final appointments will not be made, nor announced. Other award winners and milestones will be recognised at a future date, likely the 2022 preseason seminar.
An announcement from Brumbies is expected over the coming days, the executive will seek to keep you as informed as possible, and what any decision means for referees.
