With the growing COVID situation in Victoria it has typically taken Western Australian Premier Mark McGowan no time to shut the borders. Luckily for the AFL, Geelong were able to fly out just in time so their clash with Fremantle can go ahead as planned on Thursday night.
AFL CEO Gillon McLachlan said on Wednesday that at this stage crowds will be at the footy in Victoria but it awaits to be seen whether those plans will hold firm through the week.
