The Australian Rugby League Commission (ARLC) and the referees' union have reached an agreement to trial the single referee system for the rest of the 2020 season, allowing the competition to resume on May 28 as planned.

The Professional Rugby League Match Officials (PRLMO) have agreed to a review of the system at the end of the season by a working group of players, coaches, referees and NRL management.

"We are pleased that we have a solution that gets us all to the end of this season," PRLMO chairman Silvio Del Vecchio said.

"We always said that the game will go ahead next week, and it will, that's what we always wanted.

"It is a constructive sign that the NRL have agreed to do this on a trial basis until the end of the year. Our case in the Fair Work Commission will be resumed, if necessary, and can be revisited, following the ARLC Commission's response to the working group's deliberations at the end of the season. "
