    Itís on! Bledisloe fixtures in New Zealand confirmed

    TODAY AT 8:39 AM INTERNATIONAL

    The NZ government will ease quarantine to appease Wallabies coach Dave Rennie, who said his team would be unable to prepare properly for the Bledisloe Tests.

    The Wallabies and All Blacks will meet in two Bledisloe Cup Sunday showdowns in New Zealand after Jacinda Ardern's government relaxed quarantine restrictions on the Australian team.

    The countries jointly announced on Tuesday they had locked in Tests on October 11 in Wellington and then October 18 at Auckland's Eden Park.

    The Wallabies will then return home to Australia for the domestic Rugby Championship campaign, also involving South Africa and Argentina, beginning in early November.

    Two more Bledisloe Cup Tests will form part of that tournament, which will be played mostly in NSW, with Australia hoping to break the All Blacks' strangle-hold on the trophy which dates back to 2003.

    Rugby Australia boss Rob Clarke thanked New Zealand Rugby and their NZ government for their flexibility in the arrangements.

    "Thank you to New Zealand Rugby and the New Zealand government for the flexibility and support over the last week, to find a mutually agreeable solution," Clarke said in a statement.

    "We will now meet with our SANZAAR joint venture partners on Thursday to work on confirming the schedule for the Rugby Championship here in Australia to start in November."

    New Wallabies coach Dave Rennie slammed initial plans, saying the proposed strict quarantine conditions were unacceptable for his team to prepare properly, as they were only allowed to train together for five days.

    NZ Prime Minister Ardern called her Australian counterpart Scott Morrison this week to help resolve the stand-off.

    Under updated NZ government restrictions, the Wallabies will be able to train fully as a squad four days after arriving in the country, dependent on all members returning a negative COVID-19 test on day three.

    The Wallabies' travel plans to New Zealand will be confirmed in the coming days with NZ Minister of Sport Grant Robertson saying they are expecting to be based in Christchurch for their pre-Bledisloe Cup quarantine.

    "Most likely location will be in Christchurch," Robertson told TVNZ.

    "It will be in a dedicated isolation facility, and they will be able to bus to and from their training grounds."

    Purchased by (EX) WA trainer Gentleman John Price for WA's Grand Syndications - for the princely sum of 6 Grand. So far has won $1,325,290. How's that for ROI?

    Well you can forget that price TIF. Knocked off another Group 1 today and another 400-odd thousand. Cox Plate well on the radar now. Only a real champion can do what he did today.

    Well it's certainly the richest. V'landys sure loves to antagonise the Vics. Had a quick congratulatory word to the syndicate owners at the races yesterday. They are pretty chuffed and very surprised. First prize is $6,200,000 down to last last @ $450,000. Noice!

    I've had a lot less spectacular association with them. (very) Small shares in 3 nags. Two euthanised one retired after one start. "That's Racing"

    Another reason to cheer on the WA connections of Behemoth in the $15 mill Everest tomorrow. The favourite, Nature Strip is owned by Captain Grumpy - Steve Hansen.

    How good are these folks going? They also have a syndicated 3yo filly that won a maiden at Scone about a month ago, since won 2 straight at Randwick and is now the $2.10 fave for the $1.3 mill Kosciusko tomorrow. Total outlay for the two was $21,000
