Players must follow safety rules or face penalties

In announcing the NRL had committed to restarting on May 28, ARL Commissioner Wayne Pearce reminded players they would need to abide by safety protocols.

Pearce, who on Wednesday said teams would be able to resume training on May 4 before the Telstra Premiership restarts 24 days later, said all players and club officials would need to ensure they followed the guidelines because of concerns for not only their health but for the general public.

"In terms of punishment for players if they don't adhere or club officials if they don't adhere, that's something that we're working through as we speak," Pearce said.

"That's something that we want to consult with those stakeholders so that we get some feedback and can be fair and reasonable.

"But we won't be compromising on what the standards of behaviour and the actions that are going to be required."
