Statement – Season Statistics

The Rugby League Players’ Association (RLPA) notes the release of season to date statistics by the National Rugby League today.

The RLPA is adamant that prior to making any definitive statements concerning the playing environment, all information must be thoroughly tested and scrutinised.

Players have provided the RLPA with direct feedback throughout the season regarding changes to the level of fatigue and match demands, which has been shared with the NRL.

While it may not have been the intention, dismissing the feelings and experiences of players as ‘perception’ in this statement lacks awareness and respect for those playing the game.

The need for transparency has never been more important and the RLPA will request further data from the NRL and Clubs before confirming our position and making any recommendations for change.
