Wallabies handed special exemption to enter NZ

The suspension of travel between New Zealand and Australia as the Coronavirus situation in the latter country worsens will not apply to the Wallabies as they have been given the nod to enter New Zealand where the Bledisloe Cup fixture will be observed, according to a report in espn.co.uk. 


The Wallabies will travel from Queensland to Auckland on Friday morning.  


Amid health concerns, Minister of Sport, Grant Robertson, said: 


"The Wallabies have been operating in their own bubble for some time, and will travel from their base in Queensland on a charter flight to Auckland on Friday morning. They will have to fulfil all normal obligations for travel including negative pre-departure tests within 72 hours of their travel. 


"This decision was not taken lightly by the Government and given the Wallabies use of a charter flight, there is no restriction on public access to a return flight to New Zealand."
