Catalans boss Steve McNamara expects Super League return in “early August”

Catalans coach Steve McNamara says he expects Super League to return to action in “early August”.

No Super League games have been played since March 15 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

It is likely that the Dragons would have to play away games for the first month of the competition restarting because of a French government ruling prohibiting sport being played until September.

McNamara said: “The task force responsible for the delicate issue of match dates continues to meet regularly in England. It is a difficult process due to the scenario which is constantly changing.

“We expect to start playing in early August and potentially play all of August in England. The matches will then be played in France from September.

“The season will end with the Grand Final in late November or mid-December.

“All of this is clearly subject to government directives in effect between the two countries, including things like quarantine and security, etc.

“We hope that the dates of the meetings will be confirmed by the end of June and, as soon as we have clarifications, we will keep you informed immediately.”
