Dunsborough-Busselton Dungbeetles Rugby Club will return for a six-week season starting next month.

The club welcomed back all supporters and sponsors for the 2020 South West competition for seniors, juniors and masters carnivals.

Seniors will kick off on July 4 and for the first time ever, the junior Dungbeetles will play their games on Saturdays, before the senior game.

This season, the Dungbeetle juniors will host two home carnivals at Barnard Park, on July 25 and August 22.

The Dungbeetles masters rugby team will play a shortened season starting in July, with a tour of duty to the Kalamunda Bull Pen at Forrestfield.

With five carnivals to be played every following fortnight, the Dungbeetles masters will host the end-of-season carnival in Busselton, with the date and time to be determined.

The club will follow all COVID-19 health guidelines.
