Up to Cazaly for Norf?ROOS SUFFER FIXTURE BLOW
North Melbourne has suffered a major blow after Tasmania announced it would not open its borders with Queensland in coming weeks.
Premier Peter Gutwein said Tasmania will have “safe travel bubbles’ with Western Australia, South Australia and Northern Territory in two weeks.
It means the fixtured Round 11 clash between North Melbourne and Melbourne at Blundstone Arena on August 9 will need to be moved, unless special exemptions are granted. The rules will come into place on August 7.
