Slater also supports the idea of restarting the rugby league season with State of Origin.

It comes after Australian Rugby League Commission Chairman Peter V’landys admitted he was confident the season could begin again on June 1.

Slater tells Wide World of Sports radio he believes an Origin mini series would be the best option to get rugby league up and running again.

“I think it’d really kick-start our season again,” Slater says.

“Logistically there’s more opportunity to put 60 players away and coaching staff and getting that Origin series underway before we could possibly get 500 players locked away in an isolated area and getting the season up and running.

“I think it would be easier to get two teams together and run a little Origin mini-series over three weeks.

“It’d be a great way to kick-off the season.”
