Wallabies have 7 days to arrive for Bledisloe

The Wallabies side has been given seven days to arrive in New Zealand for this year’s Bledisloe Cup which kicks off next month.

They have overcome the first hurdle in order to make it over the Tasman against the All Blacks in Auckland.

The Eden Park Test, scheduled for Saturday August 7, has been thrown into doubt after the announcement the travel bubble with Australia will be closed from 11:59pm today.

The office of Sports Minister Grant Robertson this afternoon confirmed to 1 NEWS the Wallabies have been given the green light to travel to New Zealand without going into MIQ as long as they arrive within the next seven days.

Earlier, New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern said the Wallabies will have seven days to enter the country without going into managed isolation as long as they can provide a "significant economic case" to do so.

Rugby Australia chief executive Andy Marinos says the team has, "been in a secure bubble since the conclusion of the France Series, with the squad assembled on the Gold Coast".

The players have been receiving regular Covid-19 tests at their base according to Rugby Australia.

The series was scheduled to move to Australia for an August 21 Test in Perth, before then returning to NZ for the third Test in Wellington.
