    Professional rugby players in New Zealand are back on the field.

    The Super Rugby club competition was suspended in mid-March because of the global coronavirus pandemic and now the country's teams are starting their own league.

    Training sessions are being held under strict health guidelines while the games, which start on June 13, will be played in empty stadiums.
