Third Bledisloe test in Perth in doubt due to new quarantine rules

Third Bledisloe test in Perth in doubt due to new quarantine rules

Fresh doubt has been cast over the third and final Bledisloe Cup test in Perth on August 28 after Western Australia had announced that it will require all New Zealanders travelling to Perth to quarantine for two weeks.

While the Australians were granted an exemption from the NZ Government to travel to Auckland for the first two tests, it's unclear whether that same concession will be extended to the All Blacks in the opposite direction.

West Australian Premier Mark McGowan has been unable to confirm whether the game would go ahead as scheduled next weekend.

Gowan says they are not sure if the game will be held as scheduled next Saturday.

He says they maybe have to work out some arrangement, or there may be a bubble, or they just have to comply with the rules that exist for everybody else.

Last Saturday, the All Black secured the Bledisloe Cup for the 19th consecutive year with a 57-22 victory at Eden Park.

Meanwhile, South Africa will face Argentina in their second Rugby Championship match at 3.05am Sunday.
