It wasn’t all bad news for Rebels fans though, the club were able to confirm a big chunk of the squad that pushed all the way for the end of season play-offs would return for the 2020/21 season including: Jack Turner, Sean Fraser, Josh Jackman, Guy Hollis, Ryan Bird, Sam Togwell, Lee Togwell, Matt Lench, Warren Harris, Max Worsfold, Paul Hodges, Ben Harris and Dan Roberts.
