HOPES of a Group 20 season this year are starting to fade.
Group 20 clubs are due to hold a digital meeting on Monday night to make a call one way or the other on this year's season.
Already, the Yenda Blueheelers have said their first grade side won't be playing in 2020, but would perhaps like to see a competition for under 16s and under 18s go ahead.
The Griffith Black and Whites, DPC and Waratah Tigers have also said they won't be fielding a first grade side in 2020.
The Leeton Greens have made their decision, but didn't want to publicise this before Monday's meeting.
Yanco-Wamoon said they would be happy to play this season.
"They want it to be done and dusted either way," he said.
"It's been very difficult for everyone because the situation and the rules have been changing all of the time.
"There's a few clubs that don't want to play this year and a few that do."
There is a possibility that if a Group 20 competition doesn't go ahead this year that players may be able to participate in the Group Nine competition.
However, there will be provisos for that as well.
"Say two players from Leeton wanted to play somewhere (within Group Nine) because there's no competition here, that we could put them 'on loan'," DiSalvatore said.
"But when that competition is finished, they automatically come back registered to their original Group 20 club.
"They can't get a clearance, they can only be on loan."
All of these issues are due to be discussed on Monday night.
Yanco-Wamoon president Craig Higgins said it had been a difficult period for clubs.
"We've wanted to play, but you can only go with what the situation ends up being," he said.
"It's been hard the whole way along because there hasn't been a lot of information from the government.
"You start thinking one thing will happen and then it changes again."
While Leeton were reluctant to make their decision known before Monday night's meeting, club president Bill Arnold said there had been plenty to consider.
Starting a season in July would be difficult, a time which is usually when clubs are starting to think about finals football, not a competition commencing.
There's also issues of sponsorship, volunteers and whether or not crowds would be able to attend games.
All of these are factors clubs have had to look at and address.
Many have only just started training, but even those numbers are still limited and must adhere to strict guidelines.
This year had been due to be the Leeton Greens 100th anniversary celebrations, with its special reunion event already postponed to next year.
Arnold said if a competition didn't go ahead there may be a silver lining for the Greens.
"We've already got our 100th anniversary guernseys here and all of our training clothing and gear, so if we don't play this year, at least we would be a step ahead with all of that in terms of finances next season," he said.
