I thought exactly the same. I would be surprised if the pitch gets any use before the end on May at least.

If the coronavirus is due to peak in three months time, it's hard to imagine how anything can change before then.

Even by the end of June, it's unlikey that rules on unneccesary social contact will be relaxed. Playing behind closed doors may be an option at that point but that will only get the fixtures played, it won't bring any revenue in.

The RFL isn't cash rich so they're not going to be able to subsidise clubs. Saving Super League clubs would almost certainly be their priority.

The whole world of rugby league could look completely different by the time the next ball is kicked.

The worst affected clubs will be the Championship clubs. At our level, on the whole, players are paid as they play. If we're not playing they won't be paid, so the players will take the hit. At Championship (upper half) and Super League players are more often salaried and will be getting paid regardless

That's a good point, Jemmo.

I don't know for sure what the state of play is with the Dons but I have a feeling some will be on contracts that aren't 'pay as you play'.

Hopefully, the financial structures of Club Doncaster will leave us in a better position to cope than will be the case for some other clubs.

Interesting times ahead.

Spent 10 hours yesterday in Tenerife South Airport , after the previous day locked in our hotel . My point is, its only a game !
It does mean a lot to all Doncaster fans although many have lapsed .
