Central Highlands Rugby League[edit]

Central Highlands Rugby League
copyright 2005 SVAA

The Central Highlands Rugby League (CHRL) was a Rugby League previous competition District in the Australian state of Victoria. It covers the area of Victoria centered on Ballarat and Ararat, as far north as Creswick, Warrnambool in the south west, Bacchus Marsh in the east, and Horsham in the west.

History[edit]

The CHRL District was established and registered with the ARL and VRL in 2005 by founder Ken James (previously Club Manager of MRL team Ballarat Highlanders Rugby League Club) after a necessity arose to start a competition in the western region of Victoria separate from the Melbourne Rugby League (MRL) District.

The CHRL competition started with two junior age levels but in 2008 due to the 11-year drought finally taking its toll on Central Victoria the council deemed the sports grounds used in the competition too dangerous for use. This temporarily ended competition for the CHRL (and some clubs in other sports too). After another two years of the fields not being used the councils re-allocated the fields to other purposes, ending the ability for clubs in the CHRL to continue until new home grounds are established.

Extended competition[edit]

The CHRL also hosted matches in Ballarat between combined CHRL teams made up of players from both Ballarat Dragons and Ararat Cowboys against Altona Roosters and Sunbury Cougars, both from the MRL District, which expanded the experience of players at district representative level.

Current[edit]

NRL Victoria are currently looking for opportunities for Rugby League in this region.
