THE Border Rugby League is no more.

The BRL held an AGM last night and it was announced that Killarney and Inglewood were unable to form committees for the 2018 season.

"Unfortunately a decision was made that the BRL go into recess until further notice due to only two clubs being able to form committees, Stanthorpe and Tenterfield,” BRL president Norm Crisp said.

"It is very unfortunate that Inglewood and Killarney couldn't form respective committees for the 2018 season, as word from both areas indicated that there were enough players to field teams.”

The Stanthorpe Gremlins will now apply to partake in the Toowoomba Rugby League division 2 competition while Tenterfield head south to the Group 19.

"After 21 years as a competition, it is hopefully not the end of the Border Rugby League. Further discussions will take place during the 2018 season as to the viability of reforming in 2019,” Mr Crisp said.

More to come.
