Have your say: Should the Easter schedule be kept or scrapped?

There has been much debate surrounding the Easter schedule over recent years and we want to know if you think the tradition should take a back seat in favour of player welfare.

It seems like the perfect time of year for fans of rugby league to have a couple of drinks on a chilled weekend, watching their club twice in the space of four days.

However, it’s a gruelling and testing period for players, whether they be full-time or part-time professionals.

This debate arises every single year, so it is nothing to new to the rugby league world, but it still raises plenty of questions whenever the Easter period comes around.

Leigh Centurions duo Sam Brooks and Liam Hood have tweeted over the weekend that the schedule needs to go, while Hull KR captain Joel Tomkins also thinks it’s time for the tradition to be dropped in favour of player welfare.

A lot of fans love the Easter period though, because the majority are off work due to the bank holidays and can watch their team twice in a long weekend.
