INTERNATIONAL RUGBY LEAGUE STATEMENT REGARDING COVID-19

The Board of International Rugby League (IRL) would like to update the membership and rugby league media on the position of the international federation with regard to the current and on-going COVID- 19 virus situation.

The Board advises and supports all members to follow the advice of their national governments and for all players, coaches and officials to follow the advice issued to protect against the spread of the infection.

IRL chief executive officer, Nigel Wood said;

“These are complex and unprecedented circumstances and we are monitoring the situation to ensure that we support the collective response to this crisis.
