WHAT does a rugby league coach do when there's no rugby league to coach?
It's a question Port City Breakers coach Dan Kemp has had time to think about over the last month since the Group 3 rugby league season was indefinitely put on hold.
"You do it with great difficulty," he said.
A builder by trade, Kemp has been one of the lucky ones to have so far kept his job amongst the coronavirus pandemic.
Being a self-confessed rugby league tragic has meant he has had to sacrifice his regular Tuesday and Thursday evening training sessions with his boys.
While disappointed to have had that taken away, he's also realistic about the entire situation.
"For most of the boys, there are bigger things going on than playing rugby league ... like being unemployed," he said.
"I've rang them all up individually to keep them motivated, but they're struggling with it and are losing hope there will be footy; you can't blame them.
"The optimist likes to think we can start in a few months, but in reality we have no idea."
Kemp admits he's starting to drive wife Ashleigh "crazy", but it has also meant the small jobs around the house are getting done.
"There's a lot of spare time to get those renos done which are five years behind schedule," he said.
"I'm lucky being in the building game that they haven't restricted us yet; the only thing that has changed is no footy," he said.
Should the competition not start in 2020, questions could start to be raised about the future of Group 3 as we know it.
"I worry what will happen next year," Kemp said.
