They'll likely be given a nutrition plan and program to follow at home by the club's fitness team.

Whether they follow it or not is another thing...

This is the Broncos though.

I'm sure there will be video conferences setup to keep them focused and they could even get the players to use those GPS trackers when they're training to check fitness levels are tracking well... rather than relying on an honesty system

I think the hardest thing may be the weights... how the hell are guys the size of Haas, TPJ and Fifi meant to maintain their strength without being able to lift heavy.

Maybe the Broncos executive branch started this virus to stop a second Brisbane team coming to the market.

Hawthorn players took their club's gym equipment home with them.

Two things:

1. The NRL changed their mind so quickly today to suspend the season, it appears someone must have trotted it out in a Broncos jersey.

2. Our newly appointed full time captain may not captain a game this season and if the shit really hits the fan, maybe he never will 😕

Yeah this is a very real possibility. Poor Alex, man that would be the unluckiest thing to ever happen to such a good guy outside of a serious injury.

You must be bored if looking up Souths stuff hehe

I reckon this season has saved Bennett too. The first two rounds looked like Souths were following the Bennett trend of recent years where he takes over a club, has a good year with the squad he inherits and then slowly starts turning them to middle of the pack also rans. The signs were there.

I'm worried about our team getting lazy at home and not training (only Milford actually), but ffs Mitchell and Roberts will be in the worst shape of their careers.

Did anyone hear tallis on the radio yesterday?

Brisbane don't deserve funding, manly and poorer teams deserve it..

FOR **** SAKE!!! I can actually see this happening too. The nswrl clubs will use this to argue the exact opposite of what should be happening. No club should need any funding to stay alive! The game needs to invest in development of the game and also investments to build the money outside the game politis/roosters style.

If clubs need money from the nrl to stay alive what does that tell them?!?!?! Why are they in the fucking NRL in the first place! The archaic stone-age like thinking of the nrl is so Fucking frustrating.

If this happens I hope the nrl dies. It's 2020, not 1970!

His hate towards the club that made him, makes me sick. If it wasn’t for the broncos he would be a trolley pusher.

One of my mates built one of his houses in Brisbane and reckons the bloke isn’t all there. How he got a job in media and commentary baffles me.

Ikin saying basically the same, suggesting tiered funding, so Manly get more, Broncos get less
