Association spokesman Simon King said likelihood of a ban on community sport until the end of this month and no further guarantees had prompted the move.

He said the association did not consider it feasible to extend the season into October based on a risk of clashing with the start of summer sports, should they be able to go ahead, and players not having had a competitive hit-out since mid-August.

The association has decided it will declare premierships and present individual awards for 2021 at a presentation event before the 2022 season, when more people could attend.
