    I believe that all four teams have gone back into restricted bubbles, I think they call it soft quarantine in view of the evolving situation in Queensland

    Argentinian players locked out of Queensland days before rugby Test against Wallabies

    Rugby Australia faces a headache ahead of Saturday's test match against Argentina, with members of the touring squad locked out of Queensland.

    Part of the Argentinian squad went on a day trip yesterday from their Gold Coast base to a health retreat in Byron Bay, crossing into New South Wales.

    It meant that when they tried to return to Queensland, they were stopped at the border.

    TODAY's Jessica Millward reports that they're now stuck in NSW.

    "Police have confirmed that eight members of the Argentinian team, including players, went in a bus to Byron Bay yesterday for a health retreat," she said.

    "When they tried to come back across the border, they didn't have the appropriate documentation, they were turned away.

    "They've spent the night in a Kingscliff hotel.

    "You can only go from Queensland into Northern NSW for a small number of things, they include essential work, compassionate reasons and medical reasons.

    "Those reasons do not include a health retreat."

    MORE TO COME.

    They must have hired a bus and drove it there themselves. If they had a bus with a local driver surely he/she/they would have said "you're dreamin!"

    Surely with cheika in the squad they have no excuse for not knowing the consequences.

    Maybe they're banking on the fact that palaschuk will grant an exemption to any professional sportsman that is likely to bring a dollar in with them

    Medrano was one of them. Hard to believe he would be ignorant of restrictions after almost a year in the country. SANZAR has ruled them out so looks like no exemption will be asked for.

    I wonder if Cheika was actually one of the two un-named officials on the bus?

    Pete Samu has had great impact with his carries late in games, helping regain momentum at critical times so far. Interested to see how he goes with more minutes.

    Very disappointing and confusing to see Feliti & Robbo missing out. Resting Slipper and having Feleti, Robbo and Holmes on the bench would've made a lot more sense I would have thought.
    Great to see Holmes get a gig and I'm sure he'll have his work cut out for him at scrum time next to Lonergan, who just seems too small for a test hooker at this stage.

    Looking forward to seeing how McMahon goes, and also Tom Wright after he's had to run water for the last couple of months. Hopefully he can re-capture his excellent form from last year after that reality check.

    Robbo loses out because he didn't really take the opportunities offered to him when playing on the wrong side of the scrum for about 10 minutes a match, seems like he was set up to fail.

    Feleti didn't throw well in either test, so dropping him is kinda justified until you look at how Fingers threw in both of those matches, why is he still there?

    Holmsey's ability to genuinely play both sides is an asset, but he's clearly being used in the same way as Robbo was, 8 minutes after Tupou has gassed out because for some inexplicable reason they see Bell as an International Loosehead

    Can't fault Pete Samu being picked, he has shown quality this year.

    I also expect some announcement about Tate picking up an injury and them not being able to get another scrumhalf into Queensland in time, no other reasoning would make Jake Gordon a wise pick.
