Kristian Woolf wants “strong decision” by rugby league on coronavirus

St Helens coach Kristian Woolf has called on Super League and the Rugby Football League to make a strong decision decision on whether the competitions will shut down because of the coronavirus.

Most high-profile sporting competitions in the UK have been postponed because of the virus but rugby league continued to play on at the weekend.

Super League clubs will meet in Huddersfield on Monday to discuss how to combat the pandemic.

Woolf said: “We just need a really good, strong decision.

“We can’t go week to week wondering what’s going on. We need a really good, strong decision and then we can all crack on and figure out what we have to do with it.

“I wouldn’t have a clue what’s going to happen, to be honest. I’m presuming that something’s going to happen there in terms of the competition, whether it’s paused or we go behind closed doors.”

  1. There has to be clear thinking! but the call from McManus for Government financial support if games do not go ahead I think is a complete non starter! However much I love the sport, The Government are going to be asked by every business for support, not sure RL will qualify, and no way Mr Branson!
