RFL chief executive Ralph Rimmer is urging the Government to stick with the target date of October 1 for the widespread re-opening of major sporting fixtures and insists rugby league is ready to welcome back fans.
Super League resumed on August 2 with a series of fixtures behind closed doors at Leeds, St Helens and Warrington and Rimmer says clubs have demonstrated their ability to play games safely.
Rimmer said: “Public health has been at the forefront of everything that rugby league has done throughout this period.
“At all times in our regular dialogue with Government I have stressed this commitment and this morning I have written to the Sports Minister to reiterate this and to urge that the October 1 date remains the target for socially distanced crowds.”
