Players in Australia's National Rugby League and Australian Football League competitions have been warned they face pay cuts due to suspended play under the coronavirus outbreak.
Postponements and other restrictions are hitting sport across Australia. The start of upcoming AFL season tomorrow is under question. The league has already planned to cut its season from 23 to 17 rounds, and said it would make a call today on the date of the season start. The NRL has not yet postponed games but has begun playing behind closed doors.
