NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian has told the NRL that she would not let the competition restart until she could ensure the safety of all the states’ children, by ensuring they were safe and sound back in school.
“I realise we do need to get things going, and sport is vital not just for the economy but also for people’s mental health,” said the Premier. ”However, we can’t just let them go now whilst the kids aren’t in school. That’s just not a scenario I want to see.”
”I mean, we saw what happened earlier in the year when someone let the NRL players into a school. I can’t risk that happening again.”
When asked for their thoughts on the Premier’s declaration, an NRL spokesperson said: ”No arguments from us! We just want the season to start up again so we can stop stressing about what our players are up to.”
”The idea of putting them in a bubble isn’t for their safety – it’s for the general public’s.”
”I mean, you’ve seen what they get up to whilst they’re playing and training. God knows what they will get up to with no footy to keep them occupied!”
