Super League bosses have vowed to stay as "flexible as possible" as they wait to see when they can resume the season.

They held a board meeting via conference call today, attended in part by senior officials of the Rugby Football League, for further discussion of how to respond to the current public health crisis.

While the April 3 postponement date will be extended they are remaining open-minded as to when they may be back in action.

After the meeting, Robert Elstone (Super League Executive Chairman) and Ralph Rimmer (RFL Chief Executive) issued the following joint statement:

“With the country having taken such unprecedented measures, the primary focus and priority for all has to be the public health emergency – an approach that is equally applicable for our overseas clubs.

"Rugby League clubs are deeply embedded in their communities, and we are committed as a sport to following Government advice and doing all we can to promote the importance of physical and mental health – for our supporters, players and colleagues.

"In line with the approach announced by the UK Government last night, we will regularly review the situation regarding the possibility of resuming fixtures – and remain as flexible as possible, in consultation with other partners, and with the key considerations of financial sustainability and player welfare.”
