Robert Elstone: Super League aiming for July restart

Super League CEO Robert Elstone is “hopeful” that Super League will be able to restart in July but is mindful of how quickly the Covid-19 situation cam change.

The sport, like many others, has been suspended for over a month now, as the whole world continues to battle the coronavirus pandemic.

The NRL are set to resume their season at the end of May and are back in training, however the UK is still in lockdown, with much uncertainty surrounding sporting events and schedules.

Speaking on the Golden Point Daily vodcast, Elstone insists the priority is still completing the season, though, and is hoping to get it back underway within the next couple of months.

“All our thinking is about getting restarted and getting this season completed,” Elstone told the Golden Point Daily vodcast.

“At the moment, we are hopeful that it will be July, but I just think, this thing feels to me like it’s changing all the time.

“The mantra coming out of football is ‘we have to complete our season’, and that’s very much our mantra right now. We are absolutely focused on getting going as soon as we can and fulfilling the most meaningful fixture list.”
