A full season isn't off the table yet, but Southern Inland expect to have more of an idea of what shape the 2020 season will form this week.
Rugby Australia have put a hold on all rugby activities until June 1, but an update is due at some stage this week.
Southern Inland have a number of contingencies they are continuing to work through as they await more recommendations from the peak body, who is dealing with the resignation of Wagga-born chief executive Raelene Castle.
President Warwick Grant still hasn't ruled out playing a complete 18-round home and away season.
"We've just got our fingers crossed and are working for the beginning of June," Grant said.
"We will see what happens but if we can get back on the 1st of June most clubs want two or three weeks lead up for training and getting match ready before they start the competition.
"We should still be able to squeeze two rounds if that is the case but if we go into July it would be down to just one round and finals."
Southern Inland have also indicated a knockout competition could be implemented as a last resort to have some rugby played in 2020.
However the situation with juniors remains more complicated.
The junior season usually consists of a series of gala or half-gala days but with concerns over crowd numbers with the coronavirus restrictions.
Grant is still unsure how the competition will unfold.
"The kids will be a different case again as most of their events involve a bigger crowd with parents," he said.
"It will depend on the government's ruling on crowd sizes."
Rugby Australia hinted that certain states may be able to start earlier than others depending on the decline in each jurisdiction.
Which jurisdiction SIRU falls into isn't crystal clear due to their link with the ACT Brumbies.
Rugby Australia have also called on players, volunteers and officials to download the government's new COVIDSafe App.
"Not only is the app going to be an important tool in combating the spread of the virus, it will provide the best opportunity for us, as a community, to move more quickly to reduce restrictions than would otherwise be possible and allow our rugby clubs to get back to training and playing, and our competitions to resume," executive chairman Paul McLean said.
