Added to the above, furlough payments.

Fortunately people running the show are a bit more practical than you seem to be. For starters find us another RL venue with three sets of SL minimum standards changing rooms.  

Just to confirm for the sensitive souls out there upset about this home/away thing, according to the Yorkshire Evening Post Leeds will be using one of the away dressing rooms on Sunday. Although to be

I think, like Premiership RU, they can't afford the current cost of testing and playing for too long behind closed doors. That juxtaposed with the football currently on too makes it less worthwhile. Start mid August, costs should in theory be lower by that point.

Also the added complication for Super League that it has teams from 3 countries taking part.

League Express reporting the season is likely to run from the first week of August through to the end of November.

Seems sensible. I believe teams with games in hand will start in early August with everyone else starting mid August. If that’s the case I wonder if the teams with a game in hand will have an advantage by starting earlier

Delighted that we’re formalising a plan to move forward after what feels like an eternity without live Rugby League here. The November proposal was the most sensible of the three proposed and the least destructive on next year and the World Cup.

Just reduce the fixtures for Christ's sake

A game a week max

I agree...I had to do a double take when I saw it.  I think maybe a little more than a game a week though...I figure three games every two weeks?

Just read through all that, have I missed something and has a decision been taken that there is no P&R this year, it has not been mentioned on this thread.

If there is to be no P&R (in whatever format it could be decided for the Championship) then why try to cram all those games in such a tight schedule in SL?

Because all the value in rugby league in this country right now is as many TV games for Super League on Sky as possible and next year's World Cup? And so they have to fit as many of the former in this year without risking the one taking place next year?

Not really relevant to the above 2 points which are probably deemed more important to the 12, SL and the RFL.

Not Relevant, it will be if it is 'carry on as nornal' do you know of any definative statement regarding P&R Tommy, as it been officially scrapped thus season or not?

No statement yet. 

Probably so clubs can get as much income as possible, if that’s via physical attendance by fans, streams etc.
