It is a tough one though, the NRL have fucked this up so badly they are now in a spot where they have to compromise the lives of a whole bunch of people and the Warriors are worst affected. Most of these guys have to look after and support far more than most too, so the financial pressure will be massive, but at the same time, the pressure to be home will also be massive - Rock and a hard place huh!!
I agree it is a shitty situation but I've changed my tune a little. While schools/unis/shops/restaurants/public transport are open, I think the NRL has to press on. The NRL is making their health a priority so I don't see that as a big concern. They're avoiding the public, taking chartered flights, isolating themselves, everything that is necessary. The players will be in a worse situation if the game goes broke. Many of them get paid more than we do so are in a much better financial situation to work around their short term difficulties, sure there are players that aren't paid well but they can band together as a community and look after each other. (just as people in the local community are helping out the elderly/etc right now)
There will be far, far more people in worse situations because they've been left without work/etc.
Things will probably be much different in two weeks time anyway.
