RFL in talks for return of Women’s Super League

The RFL and Women’s Super League clubs will today meet to discuss the options regarding the return of the competition in 2020.

Most clubs have already returned to training, ensuring to stick to guidelines and policies set out by the RFL and Public Health England, with Featherstone believed to be one of the first clubs to do so.

Tight restrictions at the start of the Covid-19 lockdown saw teams find inventive ways to maintain personal fitness and also encompass that much needed comradeship and team morale.

The likes of St Helens and Castleford posted several training sessions via social media platforms such as Zoom and FaceTime.

Among the possible scenarios being discussed later today are a shortened version of the league or the possibility of a tournament, similar to that offered to the men’s Championship and League 1 clubs by the RFL.

However there is still no indication as to whether or not the Women’s Championship of junior girls’ teams will play again this year.

The RFL have indicated that their decision is likely to be made public by next week.
