Dewsbury Rams submit entry to play in the Rugby Football League’s proposed autumn tournament.
The idea to hold a competition later this year was put to clubs after the Championship and League 1 seasons were cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.
It is hoped that supporters will be allowed back into stadia by October, which could provide a financial boost to the participating clubs.
The RFL will make a decision on whether or not to press forward with the tournament on Friday, with Dewsbury, Bradford Bulls, Leigh Centurions and Batley Bulldogs the only clubs seemingly eager to take part.
York City Knights, Featherstone Rovers and London Broncos are all undecided while Barrow Raiders are believed to be keen on participating.
Dewsbury were able to confirm their entry after securing a testing plan through Kirklees Council for the tournament and throughout 2021.
The Rams will also need to put measures in place to ensure everyone can enjoy their potential return to action safely.
“I’m delighted we have entered the autumn tournament. I really hope there are deemed to be enough clubs that have entered to have a meaningful competition,” said head coach Lee Greenwood.
“This has been the longest all of us have been away from the game since we started as children and we are desperate to get back training and playing.”
