Greenwood wants behind closed doors return

Wigan Warriors forward Joe Greenwood believes playing behind closed doors could be the way forward for rugby league.

Rugby League is currently suspended indefinitely in this country, and there has been much speculation as to how the league will restart.

The NCL have already confirmed they have written off the 2020 season, and replaced it with regionalised leagues with no promotion or relegation.

Giving his thoughts on how the game should restart, he said: “I’d like to see the game being played behind closed doors, just to get the game up and running again, which I think will be the way forward to be honest.

“We don’t know when fans will be able to come in. I know football is looking at doing the same, but obviously we need to keep the game promoted.

“We’ve not got that vast amount of money in rugby league, so we need to keep it out there on social media, on Sky and stuff.

“It all depends on financial stuff as well, to make sure clubs can keep running.

“If the government says you can play games behind closed doors soon, then I’d probably be one of many players to say ‘yeah I am ready to do that.’

“If it keeps the game alive. You really don’t want to see the game go under. It’s a great sport, and in my eyes, whatever needs doing to keep the game alive in the future, I’m ready to do.”
