    The last time I was at Curtain Air Base the Decade had a 9 in it.

    But the facilities are bare and humble, to say the least.

    Unless there has been a stack of money spent on it in the last 20+ years Curtain isn't an option.

    Curtin Air Base was a detention centre until about 2014. It would be in line with Christmas Island. Given the distance from town, it might also be easier to compartmentalise.

    Last I heard it was being used by the US military so it might already be tied up.

    Getting off on a bit of a tangent here people. Discussion might all be moot anyway with it looking increasingly likely that the Vics will have to go into another lockdown. The prime minister is supporting this, as he did with ours. The only state yet to shut them out is NSW. The people saying the WA lockdown was an overreaction might well be wishing the Mexican government had done the same. Wishing this thing away because people have already been through a lot is fraught with danger, as we've unfortunately seen overseas. The Rabble would probably need to go into isolation right now for Round 2 to be unaffected.

    I assume Super Rugby doesn't count as essential travel?

    Nope, our paradigm has always been 7 days of zero until they lift the complete lockdown, at day 7 you can travel in but you need to Hotel Quarantine, at day 14 you can travel and self-isolate and day 28 you don't need to isolate.

    I don't believe anything Vic does to manage their outbreak has anything to do with that timeline.

    Rebels have the bye next weekend so hopefully the lockdown won’t affect things too much.

    I like your optimism Ali. The NSW authorities are chasing 7000 people - to self isolate for 14 days - who have recently arrived from "hot spots" in Vic. One of the infected people worked in a coffee shop at Tullamarine. Let's just pray that all of the circulating infected people are like our 1 and the first in Melbourne - not super spreaders.

    Phew!! They've done it... and we're good to go.

    Seven Storm players out of All Stars as COVID chaos hits multiple codes.

    The NRLs All Stars fixture in Townsville next week has been thrown into chaos by the COVID-19 outbreak in Melbourne, with seven Storm players, including Indigenous pin-up Josh Addo-Carr, officially ruled out due to border closures.

    Less than an hour after Premier Daniel Andrews announced the latest lockdown would come into affect at midnight, Queensland pulled down the shutters to residents in the Greater Melbourne region. South Australia had previously closed their border..................................A 50-strong group of Melbourne Rebels made a dash to Canberra on Friday to establish a base for the upcoming Super Rugby season.

    Oops! Every time I think about coming home for a break something happens. It’s becoming a real pain. Might just have to wait till the contract is finished and come back and do our two weeks inside!

    I mean, there's always the possibility that it might change, but it's been pretty consistent so far

    And unlikely to change before the election on March 13th.
