I have read that due to the Palaczuk government closing the borders, V'Landis is strongly considering just cutting the Qld teams out of the comp for the rest of the year?!! I guess they won't really be missed and can pretty much be considered a bye Any way...

ARL Commission chairman Peter V’landys says the NRL competition is not in jeopardy despite the Queensland government’s move to close borders to Greater Sydney residents from 1am on Saturday.
Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said the decision to close the borders to Sydney is necessary to protect all Queenslanders following COVID infection spikes in Victoria and New South Wales.

But V’landys dismissed concerns for the NRL premiership and the potential relocation of Queensland-based teams the Broncos, Titans, Cowboys and Melbourne, saying the beefed-up border controls will not affect NRL players.
V’landys said NRL players will be allowed to continue to travel between Queensland and NSW on private charter flights due to special exemptions granted by premier Palaszczuk.

What about the Melbourne Storm? I'd also drop Sydney City from the comp this year, just because I dont like them.
