The NRL has confirmed it will suspend its season indefinitely as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

ARLC chairman Peter V'landys said he was left with no choice but to make the decision after biosecurity and pandemic experts could no longer guarantee the safety of players.

"We are going to look at every available option to us in the next week or so as to how we can recommence the season, be it in other areas or northern Queensland," V'landys said on Monday.
