ARL Commissioner Wayne Pearce has said the NRL has the green light from government to restart on May 28 with teams set to begin training on May 4 to prepare for the return to play.
Pearce, who has been heading up the Project Apollo innovations committee planning the NRL’s return, said on Wednesday afternoon that the competition would definitely be up and running by the last week of May.
The ARL Commission met on Tuesday before the Project Apollo innovations committee reconvened on Wednesday to discuss plans for the proposed restart of the Telstra Premiership.
“What we achieved today was a lot more clarity around the medical process and what those protocols are,” Pearce said."We clarified that May 28 is a definite and also confirmed that May 4 is the resumption date for training. “[Fellow Apollo committee member] Trent [Robinson] is fine, everybody has been supportive. It’s very unified around what we feel is right for the game.”
