I agree that if the NRL can’t start by September, it becomes unworkable to have a premiership, however, there may be some ways of still getting some revenue out of 2020.

I think even if football couldn’t start until November, I think you could do one or both of two things:

1) still play origin. This is the biggest bang for buck for saving some revenue. Clearly it would not be perfect to have Origin with no or limited preparation, but it potentially gets $20m back into the sport.

2) play a couple of Nines tournaments. I know nines hasn’t been taken seriously in the past by either clubs or fans, but I reckon if we get to November without football we will also be so desperate, it would be taken very seriously. You could have one tournament in Sydney and one in Brisbane and I reckon you would fill both.

Who owns the rights to broadcast re-runs of old seasons?

At least that would be some footy entertainment.

Log onto Kayo, pick a season (89, 90 or 94) and off you go.

ARLC would hold the licence to it, whether they'd have archive of all of it probably would be up to 9, 10 or ABC

I think we would have monumentally bigger issues to worry about if the NRL couldn't find a way to restart by September.

Nines hasn't been popular because it was always a halfarsed tournament on the eve of the regular season. Nobody really cared. If it was the only rugby league for the rest of 2020 then you'd expect teams and fans to embrace it with far more enthusiasm.

Agree will be interesting to see what happens if it drags on beyond 6 months. At the moment the strategy they are selling is to:
(1) starve the virus of spread, and thus wipe it out. But it will only take one person from OS to come back in and we go through it all over again. That path could lead to dragging it out over a very long time. I'm not sure the genie will be put back in the bottle.

The alternate path would be to:
(2) try and build immunity in the community by spreading through at a staged rate where hospitals can manage the load. Lots of people will still die and others will have some loss of lung function. As bad as this sounds - given the alternatives - I'd probably be advocating for this except... you can't be sure it won't mutate to be more lethal or start targeting children etc.

The last path is:
a vaccine. That's a wing and a prayer, given any vaccine (all going perfectly) would take 18 months, and the thing is related to the common cold.

At the moment we are being told they are trying to (1) starve it out, whilst crossing our fingers re (3) vaccine. The actual policies look more like (2) to me though. I'm not sure why if we were going for (1) we would be working at all etc. Would make more sense to completely shut the place down for 3 weeks, with police and military involved etc. Wartime for a month, then move on.

I think ScoMo chose option 2. The states and public worst affected are choosing option 1. That’s now making option 2 a **** choice because you have the worst combination of most of the isolation, most of the economic pain, but your impact on the virus is not achieving either target end game.

The poms were going down this path until scientists advised them they're heading down a spiral path to destruction.

Worry about Australia, **** the rest we have the ability to support ourselves with food. That is what is important not some crappy piece of garbage made from China. People need to realise what is important.

Go take this advice back to cabinet Scomo.

How NRL clubs are responding to rugby league’s coronavirus shutdown

The Raiders will be closely monitoring the lockdown of borders domestically and internationally because of their contingent of English players. The tightening of travel restrictions heavily affects players such as John Bateman, whose young daughter lives in the UK. High-performance staff are working on training programs for players while in self-isolation.

I think Hodgo and Whitehead are well established here at least. I imagine for Bateman with his daughter over there it would be pretty tough.

The separation was already there but taking away the footy means he's lost his purpose for being away.

NRL and RLPA aligned on player pay talks

The National Rugby League and the Rugby League Players’ Association have taken a united first step in resolving the issue of the financial impact of the current season suspension will have on players.

NRL CEO Todd Greenberg and RLPA CEO Clint Newton met today, together with a group of senior players and Club executives, to begin talks regarding the players’ share in the decreased revenue while the competition is suspended due to the COVID-19 crisis.

In a strong show of unity, both Mr Greenberg and Mr Newton described the morning’s two-hour talks as “aligned, productive and collaborative”.

Mr Greenberg said: “The conversations we started today are intended to resolve as quickly as possible what the current no-games situation means for players. We are trying to map out what is next in unbelievably difficult circumstances.

“To do this, we need to be transparent and honest, combined with the trust and confidence of the players. This means we will have hard conversations now, for the future good of the game. The NRL and the players are absolutely aligned in our desire to ensure the game gets through this crisis.”

The RLPA’s Mr Newton agreed the talks were productive and said he was committed to protecting the well-being of players and the game.

“The meeting provided the RLPA with further information regarding the financial status of the game,” Mr Newton said.

“These are clearly difficult times but we are determined to get through this together. We will always look after our people and ensuring the appropriate support is available moving forward is key. The NRL has our trust, and we are committed to working with them to achieve the most realistic outcome for our players in these challenging and uncertain times.

“Togetherness and unity across all stakeholders will be paramount in achieving the best outcomes for the future of the game."

Agreement on player payment conditions is expected to be reached by end of week.

Canberra Raiders hooker Josh Hodgson says players have been told they might not be paid beyond next salary instalment

Josh Hodgson says players are still coming to terms with the reality of the worst case scenario now facing them.

“There is a potential we may not get anything,” Hodgson said. “We only finished playing last week. To say we might not even get paid in two weeks is a weird one. I think we are guaranteed one pay but after that I am not sure.”

Season over for Canberra Raiders lower grades, as NSWRL cancels NSW Cup, Jersey Flegg and Junior Representatives for 2020

The National Rugby League (NRL), along with New South Wales Rugby League (NSWRL), Queensland Rugby League (QRL) and the Affiliated States, has announced the cancellation of a number of male and female competitions, tournaments and national representative programs.

The uncertain and unprecedented nature of the COVID-19 pandemic made the scheduling of these fixtures untenable in 2020.

NRL Head of Football – Participation, Pathways and Game Development Luke Ellis said the decision was unfortunate but necessary under the circumstances.

“I know this will be a disappointing outcome for those involved in these competitions right across Australia, but the health and safety of those involved with rugby league must always come first,” Mr Ellis said.

“It was essential for us to at least give the players, clubs and staff some certainty going forward so they can focus on themselves and their families during this uncertain time.”

NSWRL Chief Executive David Trodden said: “It is devastating for everyone involved but the advice has changed dramatically since we suspended these competitions nine days ago.”

“We have an obligation to be part of the solution for this pandemic, both for the Rugby League community and also for the community more generally. This view was uppermost in the minds of the Board.”

QRL Managing Director Rob Moore said: “We understand the outcome is a heartbreaking one for the rugby league community, but it’s a call that simply had to be made given the current circumstances.”

“Rugby league is part of the fabric of Queensland, and as such, we have key responsibilities to the wider community as well.

The cancelled competitions include:

National: Harvey Norman Women’s National Championship; National Schoolboys Championships; all Combined Affiliated States representative football

Queensland Rugby League: Intrust Super Cup; BHP Premiership; Hastings Deering Colts; Auswide Bank Mal Meninga Cup

New South Wales Rugby League: Canterbury Cup NSW; Jersey Flegg Cup (Under 20s); UNE SG Ball Cup (Under 18s); Laurie Daley Cup (Under 18s); Harvey Norman Tarsha Gale Cup (Under 18s women); UNE Harold Matthews Cup (Under 16s); Andrew Johns Cup (Under 16s); Women’s Country Championships and Men’s Under 23s Country Championships.

NRL cancels Magic Round Brisbane 2020

The National Rugby League (NRL) has today announced the cancellation of Magic Round Brisbane 2020.

The decision to cancel the May event follows the announcement earlier this week that the NRL Telstra Premiership would be suspended due to the COVID-19 public health crisis.

With the health situation continuing to worsen and advice from government health officials and biosecurity experts that the current lock-down measures including travel restrictions to Queensland, and restrictions on mass gatherings are to continue for an extended period, the NRL said it had no option but to cancel Magic Round Brisbane in 2020.

NRL Chief Commercial Officer Andrew Abdo said while this year’s event was cancelled, it would return in 2021.

“These are challenging times for our community and our game, but we had to take this action as there was simply no other option,” Mr Abdo said.

“We have always said we would continue but only as long as it was safe to do so for our players, staff and the wider Rugby League community. We appreciate this will be disappointing for many people, but the NRL can assure fans that Magic Round Brisbane will return in 2021, bigger and better than ever.”

Mr Abdo thanked all Magic Round Brisbane partners for their support.

“In particular, I would like to extend my thanks to Tourism and Events Queensland, Brisbane Marketing, and our presenting partner KFC for their support and understanding,” Mr Abdo said.

Fans who have already purchased tickets or hospitality packages will be contacted directly by the NRL or Ticketek within the next week regarding how to obtain refunds.

For all other purchases relating to the event (e.g. airfares, accommodation, car hire) it is the individual ticket holder’s responsibility to obtain refunds or credits as made available by these providers. Ticket holders are advised to contact these providers directly.

Beers and burgers as Canberra Raiders say farewell and close doors

It was tough to watch. His Canberra Raiders staff setting up the desks they haven't spent a single day at. Raiders chief executive Don Furner then shared a beer and a burger with his staff.

"We're just about to buy them some hamburgers and at 3pm we're going to shut up shop and have a beer with them and that's it. They walk out," Furner said. "They've unpacked their desks. Literally started at 6.30am. Packed everything at Bruce, brought it all here. They won't even spend a day at their desk.

So the AFL has announced a deal with the players association.

50%, and then something for each remaining game.

NRL due to announce early next week.

That's a very good deal for the players. Hopefully the NRL players realise they took out huge loans the NRL can't to secure the money.

If the NRL players do end up accepting 80% range cuts or especially deals which cap max salary they could look pretty good in comparison.
