The National Rugby League competition in Australia will resume on Thursday
The league is enforcing tough restrictions on players and officials to minimise the risks, amid fears the game is a perfect environment for coronavirus to spread.
Rugby League is the first sport to restart in Australia after COVID-19, but it is not exactly a game that allows for social distancing. The players will have to sweat all over each other, wrestle all the time and burst breaths over themselves.
Australia’s low infection rates combined with tough restrictions on and off the pitch have allowed competition to recommence.
The players and officials have to self-isolate and keep away from the community.
