SAS Fox Memorial Premiership Draw Confirmed

A rematch of last year's SAS Fox Memorial Premiership Grand Final between Howick and Mt Albert will headline the opening round of the new season when it kicks off on Saturday, June 20.

The match – which will see the champion of champions Stormont Shield go on the line – will also be streamed live and free on

The full regular season draw for the first division was confirmed by the Auckland Rugby League this week after the original season start was delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.


The reduced SAS Fox Memorial Premiership season will see 11 regular season rounds played, with every team playing each other once. The play-off format will see the top five sides advance to the post season (rather than the usual four).

For next year, the teams which had qualified for either the 2020 SAS Fox Memorial Premiership Qualifying Series, or the 2020 Crown Lift Trucks Fox Championship Qualifying Series, will automatically retain participation eligibility for the same Premiership Qualifying Series in 2021.
