    Players' union boss Clint Newton has warned the NRL return date could still change as his association's athletes await further details around health measures

    Players' union boss Clint Newton has warned the NRL return date could still change as his association's athletes await further details around health measures


    Newton says he was surprised by Australian Rugby League commissioner Wayne Pearce's declaration on Wednesday that May 28 had been reaffirmed as the start date, with confirmation training would start May 4.

    Newton sits on the Project Apollo committee, alongside Pearce, and says the messaging was that those plans were provisional.
