The AFL is yet to confirm the Round 20 fixture, with some pieces of the puzzle yet to be put into place amid COVID-related headaches.
One aspect of the weekend that does look to be taking shape is a double showcase for those from the Apple Isle, with reports emerging that club will be permitted to arrive on a fly-in, fly-out basis.
I believe the AFL is looking to schedule up to 2 games this weekend in Tasmania. Great for Tassie. Also a boost for for the home teams, who can generate some gate revenue

Geelong are set to face the Kangaroos at Blundstone Arena on Saturday afternoon in front of no more than 10,000 locals as they continue their push for the minor premiership.
The Lions are also set for a venture to the island state, with Hawthorn set to host the flag contenders at the University of Tasmania Stadium, with that game also capped at 10,000 seated fans.
Hawthorn confirms it will play Brisbane in Launceston on Sunday at 2.10pm. Fly-in, fly-out for the Hawks. Crowd capped at 10k.
