I do not wish to be that guy (harbinger of bad news) but sadly I feel like we in Victoria are going to be locked out of the footy again (certainly for the early rounds of the season at least) due to the latest worrying outbreak that resulted from the Aus Open Quarantine Shemozzle, which according to latest reports, is a carrier of the more new and deadlier UK strain.

And even if fans are allowed into the season opener, the crowd capacity will be capped at something like 10 K (for both clubs)

It sucks, but I am really worried about the new strain that has broken out here (which has yet to spread but it will) and I think we could potentially be back to at least stage 3 lockdown by the end of the month.

Obviously I am taking worst case scenario here, but i am very very worried friends.

You can cancel your plans to go to the Saints v Blues AFLW game, unfortunately... (that's if the game will go ahead at all.

Sounds like the AFLW games can go ahead (treating it as a workplace) but no crowds. Anyone seen anyting?
