Sheffield Eagles have returned to training (RTT) under allowable guidelines. Anyone able to comment as to when we might? Don't let's be getting left behind in case of miracles!! (TotalRL information, in case anyone asks where it came from).

Perhaps they are thinking even if we have to play behind closed doors it will not make much difference from our normal crowds.😃

This is actually a very difficult decision for all coaching staff isn't it? If the teams are unlikely to play any competitive matches before late March 2021 then when is the best time to bring players back into proper training?

Is there a danger of over-preparation, will the players become stale, will they lose too much condition...? These must all be quite novel challenges for coaches to tackle.

Sorry to see him go, but if he feels it's time to do it then better now than during the season whenever it starts.

In the sense of trials and tribulations, unrequited romances, unfulfilled dreams, unexpected surprises...............that kind of thing.

Question which I would be expecting our chairman and his colleagues to be asking; why are local amateur football clubs I e. Emley, Ossett, Liversedge all playing games in front of crowds and we can't if recent posts by a Dogs fan are to be believed?

If the great challenge cup was staged to an empty Wembley what chance does the pub league have

Taken from Bradford Bulls website

THE RFL have - this evening - released the following statement regarding fixtures for the 2021 season...

The RFL has begun modelling fixture options for 2021 for the return of the Betfred Championship and League 1 competitions, and the AB Sundecks 1895 Cup. 

A recent meeting of clubs confirmed that although Government advice is currently that crowds will not be permitted until April, there is a shared desire to return well before that – and that all options should be kept open for the resumption of competitions as soon as possible. 

The first week of March, or possibly earlier, has been identified as a possible target date following an informal survey of clubs, and there will be further discussion at a Championship and League 1 Forum next month.

The RFL is working closely with clubs to ensure that they can return initially to train, and in due course play matches, in accordance with Government Guidance and RFL Protocols.  This includes running webinars for key individuals including Covid Officers and Coaches. 

The RFL is also liaising with DCMS and other sports regarding a roadmap for an earlier return to first socially distanced and limited crowds, safely building to increased crowds, and has forwarded a proposal for this to DCMS.  Individuals clubs are also having similar dialogue with their local MPs and local authorities.

Simon Johnson, the RFL Chair, said: “As we reflect on the Coral Challenge Cup Final, it is important that we continue to work with the clubs outside the Betfred Super League who have now gone almost seven months without any competitive action. 

“The recent announcement that spectators  would not be permitted to return to sport was a blow to these clubs, as it was to those in the Betfred Super League – as the return of spectators  was key to the plans for the resumption of the Betfred Championship and League 1 competitions as soon as possible this winter. 

“However the mood among those clubs is that they must continue to work towards a return as soon as possible. The players and coaches are desperate to get back – as are their supporters. 

“At the moment, we are led to believe crowds will not return until April. But as we have seen, these things can change – and with the Our League app, we do have the ability to provide coverage of matches direct to supporters even when crowds are not permitted in the grounds. 

“It is difficult to come up with firm fixture plans given that ongoing uncertainty, but we want to give our clubs and supporters an idea of what might be possible in 2021. 

“We of course face challenges, but the mood at the recent meeting was one of defiance and also excitement at the prospect of their 2021 return. Our role to work with the clubs and ensure that these competitions are rolled out as quickly as is feasible and we are well aware of activity which is already being planned. 

'The RFL remains at the forefront of demonstrating to DCMS and health partners that sports are well prepared for the introduction of socially distanced crowds in well managed outdoor environments, now that indoor arts and cultural events are underway.”

Amateur RL clubs have also been given permission to play but not yet in leagues. Most have declined to start their open age teams but have given their U10's, U9's, U8's etc a run out.

By the way, there are no longer amateur football (soccer) clubs as the designation was retired by the FA.
