Gold Coast-Hawthorne game postponed or moved



All Victoria-based AFL clubs have been sent to a day-to-day lockout as the clash with Hawthorne in Darwin on the Gold Coast is likely to be postponed or postponed.

The Gold Coast AFL clash in Darwin on Saturday night was either postponed or moved to Queensland.

Ascendon and Carlton will leave Melbourne soon for their inland games at the end of this season and are scheduled to return to Victoria after the relevant Round of 11 games despite the return of strict protocol.

Nine Melbourne-based clubs, as well as Jill Elg, will face new restrictions for at least the next seven days. Players and staff are recommended to leave their homes only for sports, training and essentials.

But Victoria’s deteriorating condition means the northern region’s Sun-Hawks game has been put on hold.

One option is to take the game to the Metrican Stadium on the Gold Coast, or postpone the game and give the two teams a bye.

His re-jigsaw plans for the AFL game have not been finalized.

Another curve ball was thrown at the AFL after the South Australian government announced it would close its borders to the Melbourne area.

This means the AFL will now have to find a discount for the Adelaide Crows to travel to the MCG for Sunday’s encounter with Richmond.

Richmond’s soldiers plan to test the COVID-19 as a precaution to help Raw return to South Australia after the game.

The bombers and blues flew from Melbourne on Wednesday, just days before the plan.

Ascendant is leaving for Perth for Saturday’s game against the West Coast, while Carlton is in Sydney against Hans on Sunday.

Departed in a hurry from Melbourne when health officials ordered thousands of fans taking part in last Sunday’s firearms at Collingwood and Port Adelaide Beach MCG to receive a COVID-1 get test and set it aside until negative results were returned.

And late Wednesday, AFL extended the order to fans attending Sunday’s game at Marvel Stadium between Ascendon and North Melbourne.

One person who took part in the game tested positive for COVID-19.

Victoria’s Department of Health issued text messages to supporters sitting on the side of the positive case, advising them to be classified as close contacts and tested.

Marvel Stadium is set to host a top-of-the-table clash between Melbourne and Western Bulldogs on Friday night – the first of four AFL games this weekend in the Victorian capital.

Acting Victorian Prime Minister James Merlino said the AFL games would go ahead with the Melbourne crowd, but that could change if the outbreak worsens.

“It’s a matter of how we go in the next 24 hours. We have an important time ahead of us,” Merlino told reporters Wednesday.

Bulldog players and staff were all tested on Tuesday and evacuated to COVID-19 after being linked to a growing outbreak in Melbourne.

Bulldog staff members went to the shopping center when it was a coronavirus-open site.

Bulldog captain Marcus Bontempelli said the players were ready to adapt to the changing seasons.

“It’s a bit of a throwback in a sense (by 2020), but we’re sorted and well prepared,” he said Wednesday.

Covid 1 restrictions were tightened in Melbourne as authorities sought to prevent a 1 contained incident at Vitalia, north of the city.

The AFL has stopped selling tickets for the games in Round 11 and 12, and the Victorian government has not been able to decide on the size of the crowd.
