Toronto Wolfpack are the latest club looking into the possibility of furloughing their players.
The Canadian club have laid off their office staff in Toronto and are in the process of furloughing their players, who pay tax in Canada and the UK.
Toronto chairman Bob Hunter: “It’s a very unique situation.
“All the players are employees of a Canadian company so it’s whether the players are eligible for that subsidy as UK and international residents. We are looking into it.”
Hunter has also conceded his club may have to switch more of their ‘home’ fixtures to the UK due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Super League has been suspended indefinitely since March 16 due to the global crisis and club representatives will discuss the latest situation during a video conference call on Tuesday afternoon.
