The Rigo Coast Rugby League competition is a new feeder league established in the Central Province with support from the Central Dabaris. The inaugural season featured six clubs including Gabone Kilivana, Gunugau Bulldogs, Gini Eels, Ivana Keina Raiders, Gaba Kundus, Maneva Hunters and the Bese Eels.

The competition was formed to put a stronger focus on the Rigo Coast LLG, with the Rigo Rugby League focusing on supporting clubs within the Rigo Central and Rigo Inland LLGs.
