The NRL has designed scenarios for their suspended competition to resume as late as September 1, with a possible grand final just before Christmas.
Clubs have been informed of possible start dates at the beginning of June, July and August by ARLC chairman Peter V’landys, with any date later than the first day of spring seemingly not an option.
A best-case restart in June would allow the NRL to complete all 25 rounds of its regular season, as well as the finals series, and a decider in December.
Jonesy & Amanda called WSFM’s NRL commentator Erin Molan for her opinion on the NRL’s decision to resume as early as June.
“If the competition does come back, they’ll need to do another pre-season which takes four weeks,” she explained.
“That’s why it sounds really unrealistic to me”.
