Queensland NRL teams to resume training

Queensland NRL teams to resume training

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has given teams in the state the green light to resume training ahead of a pencilled in season reopener on 28 May.

The Premier has told NRL chairman Peter V'Landys and the CEOs of the Broncos, Cowboys and Titans that they can get back onto the training ground.

"I said I was as keen as anyone else to see the NRL return and I meant it," the Premier said.

"The only condition was that it did not put our excellent work containing the spread of COVID-19 at risk and the Chief Health Officer advises that the NRL plan is workable."

Training can resume on the condition that further assurances about enforcing home-quarantine measures are given by the NRL.

Palaszczuk's decision means clubs will be given permission to travel across the Queensland border to play because they are working, so long as they are quarantined.

"First round games will be played in Queensland and of course I put in a bid for a local grand final and we all look forward to hosting the State of Origin," the Premier said.
