    It depends on what the state announce tomorrow. We have no idea what they’re actually planning. If they’re going hard and it is just supermarkets, hospitals and cops going to work then there’s no chance.
    If the plan is to just close schools, cafes, pubs, non food shops etc then maybe there’s a chance.

    I see the NRL are taking the Vince McMahon 'damn it, we're going ahead with WrestleMania with 80,000 international fans in the one location... unless the government shuts it down' approach.

    Spoiler: the government shut it down.

    I'm almost 100 percent sure that's why the afl had to shut up shop

    So the NRL might move all the teams to central Queensland and bunk them up isolated from the outside world.

    As a Pom, where football is basically a religion and has been suspended till end of April, I'm amazed NRL think they can carry on. :scream:

    The NRL's arrogance is breathtaking. With Victoria about to shut up shop, the Storm will have to make the same decision that the Warriors did. I seriously doubt they will be as soft as the Warriors are in staying for the NRL We already know Smith and Bellamy are not keen to play on.

    The difference is those sports can financially afford to call off a season and survive..the NRL through it's own poor mismanagement in the past need to play on or go out of business as they clearly don't have a lot of money in the bank.
