Guys,

There's not a lot of people on here not clearly thinking this through and not considering Player Welfare and the absolute need to shut down completely rather than have the players exposed themselves in continuation of games in this "up front and personal" contact sport.

These players have families and elderly parents, so to think that, we as fans in our selfish entertainment attitudes and for our craving for RL entertainment, can have the luxury of the season continuing be it behind closed doors for example is an absolute nonsense and I for one consider this to be a shameful and selfish consideration when lives are at risk.

Yes it is a crying shame that the season with our lads hitting new heights cannot and should not continue and is a total sickener for all Cas fans when the team is going so well, however life of loved ones is paramount over sport entertainment don't you think ?

Get ready for a boring number of weeks without sport and instead of twiddling your thumbs, keep busy, get in the garden and maybe help your local community with clean ups etc as you will at least get some satisfaction from yourselves rather than sat there mourning and crying your eyes out on the temporary loss of our great sport !
As I said before it’s a big panic about relatively nothing. Compare it to other illnesses and death ratios and you’ll soon realise.
I bet it only takes 3 weeks to make a vaccine or booster at least anyway.
Yes that's what Donald Trump said and look what's now happening there !!!

Mysterio, aren't you not looking at stats just now and the fact that Italy shed 368 people in one single day yesterday !!

Are you not considering that Virus's will adapt, re-morph with anti resistance like any other living organism on this planet and like most other virus's do and which now render most of our antibiotics redundant ! This covid 19 has every chance of remorphing more aggressively next winter on a second wave and it might not just be the elderly with underlying issues that suffers !

Make no mistake matey, this is serious sh.t !!

That will help keep me going ...unless I peg it in meantime

In that case why hide from it?..unless over 60, or have prior complications,

Imo we advise self isolation for the set protocol and live life as normal.

The Rugby Football League and Super League issue a joint statement on season suspension.

The Rugby Football League and Super League Europe today announce a suspension of fixtures in the Betfred Super League season, initially until 3rd April, during which time the season’s structure and fixture rescheduling will be considered.

This follows the latest Government advice regarding social contact and mass gatherings.

The Super League clubs discussed a range of contingency plans with the RFL at their board meeting in Huddersfield, and the situation will be reviewed with broadcasters and sponsors throughout the initial suspension.

These changes will also apply across other competitions including the Championship, League 1, Betfred Women’s Super League and the community game, with the RFL to have further discussions of the implications at meetings of Championship and League 1 clubs and community board over the next couple of days.

Why this obsession with a restart early April by all the Sports and just a 3 week break. All the Government experts state the peak will be at the end of May, so it will at least a 8 to 10 week break. Are the RL and all the other Sports saying the Govenment experts are all wrong.

Here's just another one for the forum. 5G where was the 1st 5G mast? Where was the 2nd 5G mast installed? On another note, let's hope it comes and goes ASAP and that everyone's families and friends etc etc etc get through this as healthy as possible. Good luck and may God bless you. COYF 🐯💪

Nope that's just the initial suspended time frame theyve all said they will revaluate has things escalate. Probably looking at may tbh

Without a dramatic change of a financial plan, we will witness the demise of our great game.

Are the players still training or has it been stopped all together?2 weeks with no training is a long time to go if so.

I would imagine the club may have given the players a week or two off to self isolate to see if they develop any symptoms and also to make sure families are OK.

Probably be back in week after next ahead of the cup tie then.

Do you seriously think a game is going to be played in two or three weeks time?

In all honesty no, though the next game is the CC game which theoretically could be played behind closed doors.

However, that is where the club is at. They have 3 weeks until beginning of April before the next game. The club and the sport will hang off the guidance of the government but it may not be known what the situation is until later that week.

Plus the players are going to have to carry on training/keep fit somehow so training will have to carry on eventually.

I listened to Todd Greenberg head of the NRL yesterday he said everything should be done to keep going making sure all the players were clear to play and ready to keep playing which he had the full backing of all the players and clubs in
Playing behind closed doors and extending the season even if it meant delaying the start of the following season but one thing he made clear the season would be completed without losing fixtures
