Draft draws for Western rugby league's premiership and championship competitions should be unveiled by mid-July as New South Wales Rugby League officials complete what has been a long consultation process with clubs in both Group 10 and Group 11.
NSWRL boss Dave Trodden launched the proposal at Wade Park in March, and slated June 15 as the date the game's stakeholders would have a clear picture of what season 2022 would look like.
That date hasn't been met, however, with officials still to meet with Group 11 powerhouse Wellington Cowboys and Group 10 club Blayney in the coming week.
Once that process is complete, a draft draw will be released and NSWRL Western Regional Manager Evan Jones says the sort of change officials are envisaging will become far clearer for all participants once a draw comes to fruition.
"We are still going through the community consultation process. It has taken us a little longer than expected to get to everyone," he said.
"We have two visits remaining, which I would anticipate having completed early next week. We are also waiting on a draft draw for the concept, which is imminent.
"We're aiming for early to mid-July announcement. There's a lot of moving parts."
