They are making a decision this week.

The Aussie and Kiwi's involvement is key, but moving it back a year isn't easy either as there is a winter Football World Cup which the BBC will also cover. Government has pumped about £50m in too and they'll be keen to hold it this year.

Read they need to move 500 over ?

Not just Oz & NZ, but Tonga, Samoa, PNG & no doubt any of the above with Lebanese, Italian, USA etc etc heritage.

Physios, trainers , media, officials.

Surely doable with negative tests, they are Green at the moment. Challenge will be what happens when they return - their mandatory two weeks in Hotel pretty tough,

Really hope oit goes ahead -60K at Wembley for the Euro finals.

The tournament could be postponed as soon as this week, with the management of hotel quarantine on return for Australian-based the main concern.
World Cup organisers have offered to foot the bill for that, but it would likely have flow-on effects with players' NRL pre-seasons.


Sounds like a lame excuse, would players go straight back to pre-season on their return?

It now appears the WC is definitely ON.

Australia and New Zealand have just withdrawn from this Autumn’s World Cup due to Covid and have requested that it is played next year.

Sensible decision and pleased it’s been made now and not in a few weeks.

Let’s hope they decide just to extend the league season now and play the Grand Final in late November and allow all teams to play all their fixtures in front of fans.

To be honest it was always going to be hanging by a thread and should have been postponed. Now is the time to draw a line under it confirm the postponement of the World Cup. Also time to move the GF and extend the season to ensure the domestic game is safeguarded by being able to be completed and giving players recovery time between games.
I really enjoy long walks especially when they are taken by people I don't like!

Hopefully common sense will prevail.

Looking at the remaining scheduled fixtures, there are two regular mid week fixtures
( ours are Saints (2/8), Salford (30/8)). These along with all other clubs could now be put back to 24/9 and 1/10. Then re-schedule all the outstanding postponed fixtures, (for us Leigh, Salford and Rovers away). Build in another week’s contingency, then start the play offs, for a Grand Final in November. The World Cup Final was scheduled to be played at Old Trafford any way so they’ll have a date available.

That would mean all teams can complete the season with one game a week. Even if some games still get postponed, at least all teams would get to play most of their fixtures. Player welfare will be protected and clubs will be able to finally start getting some decent gate revenue.

If this World Cup goes ahead this year, then it would be a massive mistake. They keep saying that this is a defining moment for the sport, but you cannot do it without the 2 star sides. I expect Tonga, Samoa etc. will be looking at the small print too as I expect NRL clubs may withhold their players.

It won't take much to put a positive spin on it from a PR point of view. We want full stadiums, piece of mind, supporter buy-in, but most importantly, the best players and teams
