Have your say: What would you do to shorten the season?

With the current rugby league season suspended, we want to know what you would do to shorten the season.

The rugby league season has been suspended indefinitely, following a meeting with the Rugby Football League and Super League clubs.

It is feared that we won’t see any action for months rather than weeks, which was initially expected.

The 2020 season across all competitions looks like it will have to be shortened, with Magic Weekend and Summer Bash unlikely to go ahead this year.

The Challenge Cup and 1895 Cups could also be dropped so the league competitions can be prioritised ahead of preparations for 2021 getting underway.

Another option could be to scrap loop fixtures and play-off matches, which would instantly cut the season short by a couple of months.

And international tests are up in the air. The NRL are set to delay their competition by at least a few months and if their plans are to go ahead then it looks like Australia’s tour of England this autumn will not be happening.

There are a number of ways of how the rugby league season could be shortened, and we want to know what you would do if you was in charge.
