The National Rugby League has finally waved the white flag and has officially confirmed it has suspended its season after just two short rounds.
ARL Chairman Peter V’Landys and NRL CEO Todd Greenberg faced the media on Monday and despite doing everything they could to keep the competition rolling – expert advice was enough to pull the pin.
“Our pandemic and biosecurity experts said due to the outbreak it is no longer safe for our players to play,” V’landys said.
“We are going to look at all the options.
“We thank the players for all their players and fans for the support. This decision hasn’t been taken lightly. Our experts are very concerned with the rapid rate.
“We were alarmed at how everything changed over the past 24 hours.
“We’ve left it open and will make further announcements in the future. All options are still on the table but what’s paramount is the health of our players.
“It’s catastrophic, I don’t think we’ve ever come across a financial crisis like it.”
Fans, players and experts alike reacted to the horrifying news… NO MORE FOOTY!
