    As of Sunday evening, tickets were still on sale for the All Blacks v Wallabies test in Wellington, for the original date of August 21.

    Ummmmm isn’t that the date of the Perth game, not the Wellington game????

    Really appreciate the kind words mate.

    The sad thing is the lunatics are trying to take over the asylum over here. Bunch of unwashed, uneducated window lickers.

    The problem in this case is that they were democratically elected.

    Stay safe

    Wallabies face stiff Bledisloe Cup switch


    The Wallabies face playing two consecutive Bledisloe Cup Tests in New Zealand before taking on the All Blacks in Perth in a condensed Test schedule to accommodate COVID-19 travel restrictions.

    Australia were set to take on the All Blacks in Auckland on August 7, then Perth on August 21 and then Wellington for the third Cup clash on August 28.

    While plans still need to signed off, the Wallabies are now likely to play Tests in New Zealand on August 7 and 14, before flying to Perth for the remaining match a week later.

    Already chasing a Cup drought that dates back to 2002, Wallabies coach Dave Rennie emphatically ruled out playing all three Tests in New Zealand.

    "It's unlikely that the Wellington Test will be played on the 28th with us all going to Perth and then have to come back, so we could be playing seventh, 14th and 21st, with the last one in Perth.

    "Nothing is confirmed ... there's a lot of tickets being sold for Auckland and Perth that's probably set in concrete and it's just whether both parties can make the 14th work.

    "Our mindset is to win a Bledisloe in you have have to win at least one in NZ to give us a chance in Perth so nothing changes really."

    With the New Zealand government pausing the trans-Tasman travel bubble from next Friday for eight weeks, the Wallabies are set to get an exemption to fly from their Gold Coast base on that day to beat the deadline.

    "We have been constantly COVID tested twice a week for the last few weeks and we'll test again today, we'll test again on Wednesday and likelihood is will travel Friday," Rennie said.

    "So we'll be over there for eight days out from the first Test."

    Weird. The text dump from TIF's quoted article says:

    When you go to the article, it shows a picture of one of the Barretts tackling Korobiete. I wonder which of them msn is calling a woman?

    So with Brisbane in Lockdown now until Sunday does that mean the entire Rugby Championship will be based here in Perth?

    Perhaps the Unions could just all agree to share the trophy. Why go to all the trouble of actually competing to find a winner? Everyone's a winner babe.

    I only want the Bledisloe if it is still warm and awash from the blood of the Kiwis whose cold dead hands we have taken it from. Anything less is un-Australian.

    Rugby Australia confirm Bledisloe Cup schedule changes
    Tue, 03/08/2021, 08:58 am
    by Nathan Williamson


    Rugby Australia has confirmed the Bledisloe Cup Test in Perth has been shifted a week to August 28 at Optus Stadium.

    Originally slated for August 21, the Test will be the third and final match in the Bledisloe series as the second Test moves to New Zealand on Saturday 14 August, with the first two games set to be played at Eden Park.

    The decision comes following the pause put on the travel bubble between Australia and New Zealand following the recent outbreak of COVID across the country.

    “It’s never an easy decision to adjust a schedule and firstly, I want to thank the Western Australian Government for their support and understanding as we continued to overcome hurdles," RA CEO Andy Marinos said in a statement.

    “The recent trans-Tasman bubble closure, New Zealand health orders and State border closures and lockdowns, have forced us to make number of changes but we’re incredibly excited about the schedule ahead.

    “It is good news for Rugby fans in Western Australia with the Test set for Saturday 28 August. For any fan that had a ticket for the original date – please rest assured, you will be automatically transferred to the new date. If you now can’t make it though, you will be offered the opportunity for a full refund.

    "We can’t wait for the team to run out at Optus Stadium and see another full house cheer on the Wallabies."

    As Marinos alluded to, ticketholders who purchased for the Test match originally scheduled for 21 August will have their tickets automatically transferred to the rescheduled match a week later, with those unable to attend able to process a full refund of their Wallabies v New Zealand ticket.

    He also confirmed discussions remain underway for The Rugby Championship with Greater Sydney and further parts of the country still in lockdown.

    “We’ll continue to work with our SANZAAR partners, as well as Governments as we confirm the schedule for the upcoming eToro Rugby Championship," he added.

    "It goes without saying that we will continue to work with the respective health authorities around Australia to ensure all events are safely delivered for fans, players and officials."

    Lucky that's the week of the pre finals bye in the AFL which no doubt made the adjustments to the schedule easier.
