The Australian team was given the go-ahead from authorities on Tuesday to enter New Zealand, despite fears of the coronavirus. This will allow Bledisloe Cup and Rugby Championship matches to be played between the Wallabies and the All Blacks. The first of three exams is scheduled to take place on August 7, while the other two will take place on the 21st and 28th.
Suspicion about this series of meetings has been called into question by Wellington’s decision to suspend the “bubble” that has developed with Australia and through which citizens of the two countries can move freely without being quarantined. This decision was justified by the outbreak of pollution with a delta variant on the vast island-continent.
New Zealand Sports Minister Grant Robertson has announced that the Wallabies have received exceptional permission to enter New Zealand territory, under a provision that allows exceptions for events with significant economic impact. ” The Wallabies have been developing in their own bubble for some time, and will be flying from their base in Queensland on a charter flight to Auckland on Friday morning. Said Robertson.
Matches 2 and 3 are reversed?
Discussions continue over the second and third matches of the Bledisloe Cup, which will also count for the rugby tournament, which is theoretically scheduled in Perth, and then Wellington. This would mean in the state two other border crossings.
Wallabies coach Dave Rainey estimated that instead of doubling the number of entries and exits between the two countries, the second game could take place in Wellington and the third in Perth.
