Super Rugby Pacific to start season in Queenstown bubble

Aotearoa’s six Super Rugby Pacific teams will begin the season by relocating to Queenstown to create a Covid-19 competition bubble, New Zealand Rugby has announced.

NZR said in a statement Wednesday afternoon the Blues, Chiefs, Crusaders, Highlanders, Hurricanes and Moana Pasifika will all converge on Queenstown this weekend to play the opening three or four rounds of the competition.

“Under current Covid-19 regulations it would only take one positive case entering a squad environment to shut down an entire squad for 10 days. The knock-on effect for the rest of the competition would be the postponement or cancellation of matches,” NZR’s Chris Lendrum said.

“By moving the teams to a secure hub, we believe we have a good chance of preventing a Covid-19 infection, or close contact event, side-lining one of our teams for a prolonged period. The plan is currently for the teams to move to Queenstown early next week and remain in Queenstown for the opening three weeks of the competition.”

The Blues, Hurricanes, Moana Pasifika, and Chiefs will fly to Queenstown on charter flights, while the Crusaders and Highlanders will bus south over the coming weekend.
