NRL competition moves to south-east Queensland for at least a month

The NRL is on Wednesday set to relocate as many as 12 teams to Queensland in a desperate bid to keep the competition alive.

The ARL Commission is locked in a meeting on Sunday afternoon, with all clubs set to be told they will be required to move to south-east Queensland for at least a month.

Each team’s bubble will include a combined 41 players and staff, with families also included as part of the plans. All plans are subject to final approval from the Queensland government.

The NRL has organised a phone hook-up with all clubs on Sunday evening. It is likely the teams will be spread across hotels and resorts throughout the south of the state.

They will be in isolation for the first 14 days, and after could be allowed to roam freely if the Queensland government doesn’t have any COVID-19 restrictions at the time.

As many as 12 non-Queensland NRL teams will head to the Sunshine State for at least a month from Wednesday.

It remains unclear whether the Storm and Cowboys will also move from their respective Melbourne and Townsville bases to join the rest of the competition in south-east Queensland.
