To not State of Origin clash will go ahead in Brisbane with fans, but Game three in Sydney is now in doubt. Scott McKinnon joins me for more. Scotty, will that game be moved?
Yeah, it looks that way at this stage. Chris, Newcastle, the MCG, and even the Gold Coast have been thrown up as possible replacements for Game three, which was set down for Stadium Australia on July 14. Round 16 of the NRL has also been thrown into chaos with the ARL Commission to hold a crisis meeting on Tuesday.
Just hours away from origin to the evolving, covert situation has everyone questioning.
I think the real challenge is where is Game three?
It’s slated for July 14 at Olympic Park Stadium, five days after the lockdown is meant to lift.
But it may be moved if those conversations are happening. And that’s how I would assume would depend on how the situation looks in the next little way.
Golf Coast Mayor Tom Tate has offered up Sebus Stadium to host the event.
Look, I think that would be a great opportunity as well. So that’d be the first time that the Gold Coast is hosted.
Teens are readying themselves for the unknown. We’re preparing ourselves for a quarantine campus we had in November last year in a tweet last night from the New South Wales Deputy Premier. Despite the growing risk of covid 19 in Greater Sydney, we will not be giving up our right to host the State of Origin decider. I’ve spoken to Peter Volandes and indicated we could host the game in Newcastle, where Origin three will be played wasn’t the only question being asked today. Concerns are also raised about the regular NRL season, but Peter Berlanti says Round 16 shouldn’t be impacted and will proceed as normal.
Where we play the games is probably the one area we need to look at.
The ARLC will hold a crisis meeting on Tuesday to try to finalize plans. Tonight’s game at Suncorp will go ahead as normal, but when we ask to fans where they’d like to see Game 3.
3, Games of Queensland would be all right. Wouldn’t it actually do anything?
Game three should be Queen as long as there’s food they’ll drink to that. Chloe. Amanda Bailey for 10 years
