ARL Commission chairman Peter V'landys is confident the NRL will have enough measures in place to ensure there are limited disruptions to the major men's and women's competitions in 2022.
V'landys joined The Ray Hadley Morning Show on Thursday to discuss the current climate of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We believe we have the systems in place to avoid disruption and we're lucky in a sense that it's happening now and we're learning from the experience," V'landys told stand-in host Mark Levy.
"I believe in our system and we've already got 30,000 antigen tests, and it will work and minimise the disruption.
"It won't be a hard bubble this year, it will be what we call a soft bubble. The players will be able to go to places but they must use common sense.
"They can't go to pubs or nightclubs that are full of people but they can go to restaurants that are outdoor dining so their lives won't be as disrupted as they have been the last two years because we are confident that if one player does catch it we will catch it early with the rapid antigen tests and that way they won't infect any of the other players."
