Australia's elite junior competition is looking to put a full stop to the season with the potential to host a major Victorian representative match.
COVID lockdowns in Victoria and NSW have forced the Border and North East's local team, the Murray Bushrangers, and other teams out of action, but the league can finish as late as Sunday, October 10.

"Officials are working really hard, in collaboration with the State Governments, to potentially get some games up and running, but of course that would be under strict COVID conditions," Bushrangers' talent manager Mick Wilson said.
