The NRL are doing all that they can to make sure New Zealand Warriors can take part in the rest of the 2020 season.
The NRL and the Warriors are continuing to work with governments in Australia and New Zealand to find a pathway for the club to complete the rest of this season. The campaign will get back underway on May 28.
ARL Commission chair Peter V’landys said: “We want the Warriors to be part of the 2020 season and we are doing everything we can to not only make that happen but provide the support they need at a family level.
“It’s important to understand that our aim to restart the competition on May 28 is still six weeks away. We’re not proposing to start the competition next week.
“Accordingly, we have ample time to analyse the data and ensure the infection rate is at such a low level there is minimal risk to our players or the community.
“It also gives us time to make all the necessary arrangements for the Warriors.”
NRL chief executive Todd Greenberg added: “The NRL today sought further information about the needs of players, preferred locations and requirements for the club to be relocated within the current government guidelines.”
