The resumption of the season for Betfred Championship and League 1 clubs will be talked about in July's RFL Board meeting.

The clubs from the two leagues, which include the three Cumbrian sides, Whitehaven, Workington Town and Barrow, held a scheduled forum via video conference this week, which was chaired by Simon Johnson, RFL Chair.

The clubs discussed a range of issues, with the main topic being to consider options for the 2020 season, following its suspension on March 16.

A statement read: "Reports from the two working groups that had been set up at the last forum, in mid-May, were presented – one on cost and logistics, the other on revenue opportunities.

"A range of views were expressed by clubs, both on the issues involved – now involving the possible return of crowds to sport later in the year – and on when a decision should be made regarding the 2020 season.

"The clubs will now be invited to present their views formally via a survey, and those views will be carried forward to the next RFL Board meeting on July 6."

Clubs also considered a presentation on recommendations from the RFL Laws Committee meeting earlier this month, focusing on the reasons for changes recommended for the 2020 season – which will also be carried forward to the July RFL Board meeting.
