There is an article on the ABC that whilst not supported by quotes states Vixens attempted to get replacement players but given they were in Victoria they were denied entry to WA. Article also states that the players who went to Byron went in accordance with the health advice at that time and did nothing wrong. Same article quotes Marinkovich saying the points should be Fever’s and if the game is rescheduled they need to ensure it’s at an appropriate time and player’s loads are managed. That’s a little rich seeing as the load management they deem appropriate for Vixens is to play with 8 players most of whom are rookies.

Overall the trip to Byron Bay may have lacked foresight. But if permission was granted then they haven’t done anything wrong. No other state has locked out entrants who have been in Byron Bay. Byron is a long long way from Bondi.

It’s completely unrealistic to expect any team to play with just 8 in their squad. It’s utterly ridiculous to lay all blame at the Vixens as Fever are doing.
