China are NOT out of lockdown, they are just, from today, starting to slowly lift restrictions on travel in Hubei province for healthy folk only. No relaxation is planned for the city of Wuhan until 8th April.

And the UK's lockdown (sic) amounts almost to complete freedom in comparison to that imposed in China and elsewhere. 

Someone else more pessimistic than me.  Things are looking up.

Well, with the Aussie test matches about to be cancelled there will be a bit more wriggle room. Whenever any semblance of normality does return many clubs will be desperate to start staging matches again in order to drag in much needed cash, assuming that they are still in existence by that time.

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

I am telling you all that this will NOT be over soon.

 And I myself am showing some of the signs of this,ie some headache,some coughing(not major)and feeling general like 💩.NHS direct said it is possible I have it though maybe mild.I have not been tested.

Or it could be the onset of a cold and for some reason I can catch them.

But let me say this to you all.

I am a libertarian but this is serious now and I urge you all to stay in.

Cheers Rob and hopefully you are virus free but rest assured Im not arguing about rights / wrongs / timescales 

Im just excited that there are at least two people posting on here that can be described as more pessimistic than me..A completely new experience

I would be very surprised if that is the case.

Such as a complete lack of moral fibre, humility and basic human decency?

He is certainly being optimistic.Personally If I was him I would have said something like we hope to have eradicated this by Easter.

If we see any rugby league restart this season we will be very lucky.

My worry is that if there is no rugby league by say July there may be no Sky money as I have read that the money is only guaranteed until June.

And without money coming into clubs via the turnstiles,corporate events,sponsorship etc I fear we will lose clubs even with furlough.

Please let me be wrong.

Listening to Gary Hetherington on Radio Leeds today, he sounded a worried man. Given that the Leeds Rhinos Club is probably the wealthiest with all their different operations, they are set to lose about £1.5 million if they don’t get playing soon.
