    Coronavirus-affected NRL season to restart on May 28 after reaching agreement

    "Coronavirus-affected NRL season to restart on May 28 after reaching agreement with Foxtel and Channel Nine"

    "NRL television broadcasters Channel Nine and Foxtel have agreed to recognise May 28 as the competition recommencement date following extensive meetings.

    On Friday evening, ARL Commission chairman Peter V'landys confirmed to AAP that the NRL and broadcasters would finalise a competition structure early next week, as both parties want different outcomes.

    "We were all united on the 28th May start. But just the competition structure, we need a little more time ó but we definitely announce it early next week," he said.

    The NRL has been pushing for weeks to get back to playing, putting it at odds with government and public health authorities.

    The agreement between the competition and the broadcasters comes two days after ARL commissioner Wayne Pearce said the league had been given the green light by state and federal governments to restart after establishing a new set of health and biosecurity protocols.

    The competition's 16 clubs have been told they can restart training on May 4."

    NRL have co-opted a leading American medical expert to oversee their exit from lock down strategy. He will also liaise with his mate ScoMo to get a rubber stamp from the National Cabinet. The strategy? "You simply give each player an injection of Pine-O-Clean before each match followed by a post-match oral dose of Harpic bog bowl bleach. Piece O' Cake!"

    Coles and Woolies are closed today so they can restock, after the hoarding rush on Pinocleen, Dettol and bleach yesterday.

    Extreme shortages are anticipated for at least the next month.

    Bloody mungos.

    There will be no penalty and they will be able to restart their matches without penalty, a simple apology will do, you just watch.

    Setting a great example once again, elite role models.

    VíLandys is a lot tougher. There may be additional Police action in relation to the gun and the fact they took unregistered motorbikes out on the beach.

    Yep. I think these palookas can expect heavy fines and suspension - providing the NRL even get a go ahead in light of this.

    Considering how vulnerable remote indigenous communities instituted measures to try to protect themselves, I reckon its a situation their leaders should denounce too.
