FOOTY’S BACK: Fans rejoice as NRL return only days away

INITIALLY when COVID-19 was introduced into Queensland, I wasn’t all that concerned.

But then something happened that completely turned my life upside down and I was forced to stand up and take notice.

The footy stopped.

I thought, if this virus can put a stop to the game I love, it must be serious.

So, like most Queenslanders, I followed the rules and regulations to ‘flatten the curve’.

And we have.

Much better than that blues mob south of the border.

A huge pat on the back to those involved who pushed so hard to recommence the 2020 NRL season.

This Thursday night sees the kick-off of round three.

I haven’t been this excited since Mark Coyne’s ‘miracle’ try in the 1994 State of Origin.

You don’t need me to tell you, that the 2020 NRL season is one of uniqueness.

One referee, State of Origin after grand final.

It’ll be the season we tell our great-grandkids about in years to come.

And we are only up to round three.

What lies in store for the rest of the modified season is anyone's guess.

One thing’s for sure, it’ll take more than a global pandemic to stop the NRL.
