Due to the implications of travel and quarantine, the planned October series between the Origin Australian Diamonds and Netball England's Vitality Roses will no longer go ahead.

I said it a couple weeks ago, but hoe the F can the All Blacks travel to Perth, when NZ was plunged into level 4, and Covid was spreading in Auckland, and then just 7 days later they played the Wallabies in front of 50,000 people.
Seems in Australia Covid has one rule for male sports teams (do what ever you want it’s all about money)
And one rule for female sport, clearly not as important.MaryannParticipantSeptember 25, 2021 at 4:34 pmPost count: 971

100s protest in Melbourne, 100s have a gathering at Bondi. But a handful of double vaccinated Netball players, coming from a place Covid free for 15 months, nope.al_exParticipantSeptember 25, 2021 at 9:18 pmPost count: 1078
Covid has become so political in Australia, it feels like each premier will only take a certain position if it helps them get votes. Rugby and AFL matches with 50+ thousand spectators? Entire leagues being flown in with their partners and families from hotspots? Yes. Fully vaccinated female athletes coming from the lowest risk covid region in the world? Seeing dying relatives from the other side of the border? No.
I feel like there would have been more chance for the series if it was in NSW or VIC but the Roses are here just a few months too early for that.
