The Brisbane NRL team flew to Sydney last night. Roar's next three games are WSW in Brisbane then Macarthur & WSW in Sydney.

Too late for the Roar to get into Sydney now right?

Alas what could have been

A-League yet again showing how far their on the back foot.

Where did the NRL team fly from? Weren't they in Melbourne already after their last match?

With Brisbane in lockdown the Roar flying out wasn't an option?

The Broncos flew out from Brisbane on Tuesday afternoon to Sydney,  they trained at Leichhardt Oval on Wednesday. The game against the Storm set down for Melbourne maybe transferred to Sydney.

NRL 360 reported that they are confident the game will remain in Melbourne.

ALeague - I'd guess that neither the Roar or ALeague have available cash to make similar arrangements

For just one team you'd put them in the FNSW Valentine Sports Park

So, the NRL have moved two QLD games to Sydney this weekend to play in a double header on Saturday evening at Netstrata Stadium, Kogarah.

Sharks vs Cowboys and also the Titans vs Raiders.

Also, the Victorian Govt has given approval for the Brisbane Broncos to fly to Melbourne to play the Storm at AAMI Park on Friday night.

Meanwhile, no word from from the APL or FFA re Brisbane Roar vs Wanderers. All I hear is the sound of crickets. Quite pathetic really.

This is very frustrating on so many levels Bankwest is free apart from the Disney drive in. They should have just made the decision to swap the home games and make April 16 the away game at redcliff since Gladys hasn't closed the borders. It too late now so were just waiting until the last minute.

... at the very least could the ALeague have moved the WSW v CCM match forward to Saturday

Coasties would have turned up for their good team to play our so-so team

CCM v WSW would have had a bigger crowd for sure on weekend, yes school hols but back in work Tuesday for most of us i guess.

Seems the Roar thinks the game is still going ahead as planned,  you can still buy tickets to the game through their website.

Wanderers are still planning to fly to Brisbane on Friday. Roar training on the Gold Coast. Club will wait on guidance from the APL and Roar have clearance to leave Queensland if required.

 

https://www.theaustralian.com.au/breaking-news/a-league-officials-wont-move-brisbane-roar-or-cancel-games-despite-the-city-being-in-a-covid-lockdown/news-story/4bc31ccf778ce9319df82e87270474ba

 

A-League officials are happy to gamble with the future of this season’s competition by keeping Brisbane Roar at home despite the COVID-19 cluster that has led to a southeast Queensland lockdown.

While Queensland teams for rival codes have been moved out of the state, the Roar are continuing to train on the Gold Coast ahead of their scheduled clash against Western Sydney Wanderers at Dolphin Stadium on Saturday night.

A Wanderers spokesman said the club was waiting on guidance from the Australian Professional Leagues, who control the A-League, but at this stage were planning to fly to Brisbane on Friday.

 

APL managing director Danny Townsend was confident the right decision had been made to not relocate the Roar interstate before the lockdown started at 5pm Queensland time on Monday.

Townsend said necessary transport arrangements were also on standby, and had been given clearance by the necessary authorities, should the Roar squad be required to leave Queensland during the lockdown.

“We’re going to continue to monitor the situation,” Townsend said.

“Our usual process is trying to have all options open so when the circumstances crystallise we’re able to pivot in the direction that’s most appropriate.

“We’ve never been a code that’s gone out and made a big bet on one way or the other because we’ve felt we’ve been able to work through whatever’s been thrown at us without making rash calls to move players out into another jurisdiction.”

Despite Townsend’s confidence, the A-League is still haunted by the events of last season when players from the competition’s three Victorian clubs - Melbourne City, Melbourne Victory and Western United – were left stranded on the Tullamarine Airport tarmac unable to leave the state in time before border restrictions came into place.

Obviously gambling that the QLD Premier wouldn't order a lockdown for Easter.

I'll be pissed off if all the other sports go ahead but out game can't because we did **** all about re-arranging.

The APL are actually very productive and are doing lots behind the scenes. It just doesn’t get reported cause we don’t get the same media coverage other codes do. I have a mate who works within. I reckon they’d be on top of the logistics around this game.

As it's still 1970 up there.

So another 50 years before Covid strikes?

I can't wait until the independent A-League clubs are allowed to run their own club websites. Feels wrong to have that article published on wswanderers.com.au when it's authored by Football Australia.
