Teams have relocated to keep the game going, and you have f**kwits like this doing whatever they feel like. Ban the selfish merkin for the season and erase him from my club please NRL. Pleeeeease!

I agree, these dumb merkins think they're above the law, and probably have the race card sitting loosely in their pocket if the book is thrown at them.

So MCG has gone to a no crowd mode

Wont be long before SOO I is formally moved
MCG is no crowds because there's a lockdown. It ends on Friday, and crowds will be back after that

Surely they have to make a call Monday, plenty of people will have flights/accom booked not to mention all the tickets sold and people needing to plan around it even the locals.

Even if Melbourne does come out of lockdown after 7 days I doubt much of a crowd will be allowed within days of it ending.

On fox they were saying the qrl has been booking up accomodation and corporate entertainment venues in Townsville leading to speculation the decision has already been made.

I get what you mean but there was months of warning before last years delay, this is less than 2 weeks. There is no way they move the dates now is all I’m suggesting.

Its not out of the realms .. postpone this one and make it the potential decider yadda

It's highly unlikely that it's going ahead here IMO.

Even if the lockdown lifts, it's unlikely QLD and other states will lift there travel restrictions in time, making it impossible for interstate visitors.

I'm doubtful the lockdown will be lifted before then anyway.

Email from Ticketek received, MCG Origin has been cancelled, stand by for a refund.

Townsville will be a great alternative.

Good choice and great for those NQ fans who otherwise would spend a fortune going to see it in Brisbane. Id have been equally happy to see it go to Newcastle instead.

They should wedge Newcastle in there in 2024 or whenever the next available year is if it has changed as mentioned above. Then return to the neutral venues after that.
