Nine teams will again look to claim top honours in 2017. After a stunning upset of the Queanbeyan Kangaroos in last years grand final, the West Belconnen Warriors will be the team to beat heading into the new season which kicks off on April 1.
The Kangaroos are expected to be very strong again, while their cross-town rivals, the Queanbeyan Blues, have been boosted by the arrival of former Raiders captain Terry Campese as captain-coach.
The Tuggeranong Bushrangers also have a new coach, with Justin Giteau taking the reins in a very promising move, after his great work in rebuilding the Warriors a couple of seasons ago.
Fixtures for the rest of the competitions in the Canberra Region Rugby League will be released in February/March.
