The National Rugby League (LNR) should decide at the end of April what to do with the Top 14 and the Pro D2, interrupted by the coronavirus pandemic, after the postponement at the end of the month of its Steering Committee initially scheduled for Tuesday.
“Faced with a complex and evolving situation, the National Rugby League gives itself time to reflect before taking, in consultation with the FFR, the first decisions related to the situation,” wrote the LNR Saturday in a press release.
The Top 14 and the Pro D2 have been stopped since March 13. The presidents of the thirty professional clubs have declared themselves in favor of the continuation of the season.
Since March 18, the NRL has created three working groups, sporting, economic and regulatory, to initiate a response to the consequences of the health crisis.
For the time being, two scenarios seem to be holding the line: maintaining the Top 14 final on June 26, with a tight schedule, or moving it to July 18.
