Jas777: If they do get stuck in quarantine then see who of the 46 are willing to do it and send the most needed to be here home.
Probably not allowed to do but could see if allow some family in NZ to go to Australia and spend Christmas there before come home
There is talk of a Bubble between NSW and South Island, so I guess the Players go from the last game to NSW and families can come in and go and spend Xmas together in NSW. They would need to Quarantine on re-entry, but that's also an option.
There IS a solution to this, if people are willing to be flexible.
