The Moroccan Government has prevented the scheduled Middle East North Africa Championship match being played.

The exact details are unknown at this stage, but according to Lebanese Rugby Football League Chief Operating Officer, Remond Safi, the Cedars are presently in Morocco as expected for their MENA game against Morocco.

“The MENA Championship has been blocked by the Morocco Government. The Lebanon [team] is in Morocco now,” Safi advised Rugby League Planet via email. “The LRLF and RLEF will be issuing a press release about details of the blockage,” Safi continued.

And of course, Rugby League Planet will post those details as soon as they are received.
