In 2019, the coach compliance cut-off date will be Saturday 1st June, 2019. From this date, all teams must have a coach who is compliant to take the field.

To be compliant the following needs to occur:                                                                              

  1. Coach is registered to the club as a coach via  Play NRL -

Coach Re-Accreditation:

Please send these coaches to the following link -!tag%3DclassificationIds_111234%7D%20classificationIds_111234:(2%2F111234%2F111235%2F3163027%2F)&sidebarExpanded=true&q=%7B!q.op%3DAND%7D%20*:*&rows=3

For any MGC coaches please hold off as they will have a new online re-accreditation to complete. I will send this through once I have the information.
