Reduced fixture list not an issue for Cuthbertson
Leeds Rhinos forward Adam Cuthbertson believes a reduced fixture list is the best way to finish the Super League season.
Rugby league is currently on hiatus and while the initial shutdown was scheduled until April 3, it has now been suspended indefinitely at all levels.
While the NRL tried to soldier on behind closed doors, Super League managed just seven rounds before the decision was made to halt the season due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Various solutions are being proposed and Cuthbertson says it is essential the 2020 campaign is completed in some form.
The Australian believes it would be the best outcome for all involved in the sport, suggesting that a truncated calendar could even provide more entertainment.
"I would definitely like to see the season finished and it'll be interesting to see how they are going to do that going forward," he is quoted as saying by the Yorkshire Post.
"I think it's important for the supporters, the people that turn up week in and week out, to finish the season.
"I have talked about shortening the length of the season and this might be a really good way of seeing how that would work, and whether it potentially might be something for the future.
"A shorter, punchier season might make for a more exciting one and create more interest - and have better performances from round one to whenever we finish."
