Michael Shenton hopeful rugby league can come out on other side

Castleford captain Michael Shenton remains hopeful that rugby league can come out of the coronavirus pandemic on the other side.

The Super League season has been suspended indefinitely due to the virus that has swept the nation, while the NRL is set to resume play on May 28.

Shenton told the club’s website: “There are so many questions regarding how the sport will look come the end of this pandemic, there is no doubt now it will look different.

“I don’t know the answers to these questions but all clubs are being hit incredibly hard financially and unfortunately we aren’t a sport blessed with unlimited resources but I can tell you all the clubs and governing bodies are working hard to make sure we come out of the other side in a place where Super League can continue.

“To all our supporters, please keep safe and make smart decisions, the sooner this is all over the sooner we can get RL back.”
