NRL players to return to training on Monday

NRL players will return to training on May 4 ahead of the competition’s return to action on May 28.

Players will return to the clubs for Monday’s biosecurity education day, with full training then taking place from Tuesday.

Earlier this week, RLPA chief executive Clint Newton said the players may not be able to commit to training next week due to the players’ union seeking further information on a number of issues.

But Newton now believes they will have a deal sorted with the NRL over the weekend – and that players will be at training next week.

Newton told “We’ve received further information, assurances and guarantees and now we’re in a position that we’ve got something to take forward to the members and we should have everything resolved in the next day or so.”
