The Australian Medical Association has lashed out at the NRL’s wish to have crowds back by July, labelling it “absurd” and “dangerous”.
The NRL has outlined plans to have capped crowds back at NRL matches, with numbers dependent on the stadium size.
Both the NSW and Queensland governments have said they are open to working with the league on a plan, but indicated it could be too soon to consider.
But Australia’s chief association for doctors and medical practitioners said any plan to have crowds back at suburban grounds was a “huge” risk to public health amid the coronavirus.
