Leading coaches support the association's plan to play in State-based clusters.
CAW held its annual general meeting on Wednesday night where it was decided at least the first three rounds will be played on a State basis to beat the Border closures caused by COVID-19.
The four Victorian clubs will face each other, with the six NSW outfits to do likewise.
"I think it's a fairly practical solution and seems to be well thought out," Tallangatta coach Matt Armstrong said.
"Who we play against is not a huge issue, I think if we can play against the NSW sides before Christmas, that's great, but if not we'll just get on and play the Victorian sides."
