Am I right in thinking the RL powers that be are meeting today? We might know a little more tomorrow.

I’ve seen people in Australia saying they may just scrap 2020 there 😳. Be June at the earliest in the Uk.

My opinion, Magic weekend is gone, challenge cup final gone, best we can hope for is possibly rugby in September, no loop fixtures.

Can’t see them losing the loop fixtures, clubs will need all the income from as many home games they can get. Can see a grand final played between the top two with no play offs though, or at best 1st qualifies directly and 2&3 play off. Ashes will be a goner as well.

I was just basing my opinion on 1, when this nightmare finishes and 2, will SL/the RL delay the 2021 season for a few months. Hopefully player welfare comes into play, the season surely can't finish in December and expect the players back into pre season for a February start" It's all very complicated. I'm guessing sports won't restart till September purely based on the media saying quite a few times that schools are not likely to be back till September.

The forum provides a welcome diversion in unprecedented and challenging times.
We all love our rugby in the way others love their sports.
The situation we find ourselves puts lots of things into perspective.
The money paid to top footballers, the sponsorship deals and many of the sums of moneys are eye-watering to the point of being obscene as such some teams will survive and selfishly pick up where they left off.
Rugby League does not attract those sums of money and we could see a very different structure.
How do you justify an away match in Toronto.
We could see the return of semi professional or part time players.
I am no in the know in fact the phrase looses meaning.
However when whatever happens and when ever it happens it's unlikely and in my opinion things will return as though nothing had happened.

I think you might be surprised. Things always tend to go “back to normal” eventually, even if ‘normal’ has a slightly different meaning.

Potential positives for later in the year if we do get restarted:

- Junior finally gets fit
- The season has to be completed by the end of December with the final 2 games on Boxing Day & NY Eve
- My current wife will have really settled into the practice of social distancing herself from me and won’t mind me spending the remainder of Boxing Day in the rubber dub dub
- The training pitch will have less pram tracks in it
- The flies in the Princess Street toilets tend to be less aggressive once we get the other side of August Bank Holiday
- Phil Clarke’s current wardrobe disasters may have come into fashion

Here’s hoping...

Stay safe everyone.

Think I once saw a picture of the lesser spotted feki on the blue planet. Apparently a rare creature.

Ref magic weekend, Does not every one think we should be getting some clarity on this, As this is going to cost a lot of people a far amount of money if they leave it till the last minute with hotel bills and travel. A lot of family's that will be going can not afford to lose in this troubled time. I Know the club read these post so a bit of clarity from them wouldn't go amiss. and Before some off you start I myself are more fortunate than a lot others so I can afford to lose out ,Also I have been a Cas fan through thick and thin for a lot more years than most on here. :) :)
