- Three games in nine days angers rugby league players’ union
- Garreth Carvell says clubs are struggling to put out full squads
Rugby league’s players’ union says the sport risks failing to properly protect the welfare of participants with Super League clubs facing three games in as little as nine days over the coming week and a half.
Garreth Carvell, the former Great Britain prop who leads the Rugby League Players Association, says the union will do all it can to remove busy fixture periods from the calendar as soon as possible and better protect those taking the field.
