A Covid outbreak in Sydney has forced Rugby Australia to shift the first test against France, scheduled for 7 July, from Sydney to Brisbane, where it will kick off at Suncorp Stadium, according to a report in smh.com.au.
Lockdown restrictions were imposed of the city of Sydney yesterday (Saturday). The French are currently in Sydney but have been granted permission to travel to Brisbane.
Two of the tests will, therefore, be played at the Suncorp Stadium while Melbourne is still on track to host the other.
