The NRL could resume in just six weeks with the ARL Commission set to meet to decide on Thursday afternoon whether a May 21 start date is feasible. Resuming a week later is another option being considered. It comes less than three weeks after the NRL was forced to indefinitely postpone the competition just two rounds in due to the coronavirus pandemic. Falling infection rates has had rugby league's governing body bullish about a return to the field so it can start bringing revenue back to the game. One model reportedly being proposed would see the Canberra Raiders, along with the Newcastle Knights, able to remain in Canberra and travel to Sydney to play games.
