Trust at a premium as rugby league plots a way back
The NRL have unveiled plans for the sport to return next month but the actions of some players could’ve undermined them already
The NRL’s plans to bring rugby league back are at risk of being undermined by those very people they are trying to get back on the field.
As sports all over the globe look for a resolution to resolve their decimated schedules, Australia’s most-watched winter sport appears one of the closest to seeing their athletes return to competition sooner rather than later.
The NRL unveiled plans on Tuesday for the sport to return next month with players and staff set to be allowed to go back to training next week. A new 20-round competition would then begin on May 28, pending government approval.
