Mid North Coast Rugby Union has delayed the start of the Lower North Coast and Upper Mid North Coast competitions until Saturday April 24.
Both were scheduled to kickoff on Saturday (April 17).
Both competitions will run for 15 rounds.
"After the most difficult pre-season in some time rugby will kick off with all clubs working overtime to field teams across all grades,'' MNC zone executive officer Bruce Worboys said..
"All Lower Mid North Coast clubs have been affected by the recent floods and this has resulted in some changes to the draw. These changes will be published next week.''
North Coast president Peter Gerathy has congratulated all clubs for their efforts.
We appreciate the circumstances that all clubs have been through over the last 12 months, but particularly the last eight weeks, and I congratulate them for their resilience, particularly Kempsey Cannonballs, Old Bar Clams and Tarees Manning River Ratz,'' he said.
"All have worked very hard to put teams on the field next week and wish them all the best for a successful season.''
