All trial games and training sessions have been suspended for the Group 10 competition, which was set to kick off on Easter Friday but will now be pushed back, with the league yet to determine what it means for fixtures and dates.
The Lithgow Workies Wolves have been training for some months now in preparation for the tournament, hoping to whip themselves into shape to be a top contender in the competition and gain themselves a top three spot come finals time.
But now all of that preparation has come to a halt, with no training allowed due to the current outbreak of coronavirus.
Workies captain coach Corey Willmott said having the season postponed was not ideal but it was the best option at this stage.
"No training effects our preparation for the season massively, but I believe the boys will keep on top of their own fitness through this time," he said.
All senior and junior rugby league has been cancelled until at least May 1 following an announcement from the sport's governing body on Wednesday, March 18.
This means the Group 10 season has been pushed back by six weeks.
Willmott said that he is hopeful the season kicks off as soon as possible and doesn't get postponed further.
"We are still positive as a club that we can do well in every grade, not just first grade, even with a shortened season," he said.
It isn't only the Wolves who have been affected by the virus, every club in the competition has had to stop training, something that Willmott takes solace in.
"I don't think we start the season on the back foot [by not being able to train] because every club is in the same position," he said.
