Public health should be paramount, the government need to act otherwise Coronavirus will spread exponentially. If that means suspending sporting fixtures or cancelling them all together then so be it.
Next stage would be recommending people stay a metre apart.

So as we only get 10-12k in a 25k stadium surely we can just spread people out?
Good call! :D :D
There won't be 10 -12k as all the over 70's will be ordered to stay at home!

I'll be surprised if we don't see an abridged season at the very best. The worst, well, we don't want to think about that.

Leeds are not flying out to Perpignan today, one of their players is self-isolating
Rugby, Family and Strava... that’s about it for me to be honest!

There will be a ban on sporting events (and all gatherings) but not yet.

As soon as we start to hit the upward trend, expect it.

All elite football in England has been suspended until at least 3 April as a result of the spread of coronavirus.

I know it’s a serious virus, but this video is so very funny IMO 😂
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Just a pity the Superleague suspension didn't start at 7pm Friday 13th March.

I think we are all due for a break as we should be.
