TURVEY Park Bulldogs president Steven Marks has reiterated the club is still keen to play football this season as AFL Riverina weighs up its plan of attack in 2020.
Marks revealed the clubs' contracted players have all agreed to play for no money this year to ensure participating in a season is financially viable for the Bulldogs.
Bulldogs coach Mark Carroll raised concerns of potential health risks if a season went ahead on Sunday, but Marks said they will be guided by the AFL Riverina after their board meeting on Monday night.
"Our stance has been the same as it's been for the last few weeks even as the turmoil has happened over the last couple of weeks. We're just looking to see if the RFL can provide us with a safe comp," Marks said.
"If they change the conditions of the comp in any way, whether it's a re-draw or whatever, we'll look at it at that stage and make decisions when the changes come through.
"We're hoping they can provide us with a comp, because we're still keen to play in it."
Marks said the club has always been keen to play, provided it doesn't affect their coffers going forward.
Gladys (Berejiklian, NSW premier) could turn around and say you can only accommodate 100 (spectators) at the footy, and if that happened it would be unfinancial," he said.
"We've asked our players to play for no payment, all the contracted players have agreed to that so they're keen to play.
"Hopefully they can come to a decision to keep a competition going."
On Monday Charles Sturt University became the latest club to confirm they won't play this year, a day after East Wagga-Kooringal did likewise.
