Covid-19 set to mess up home state decider

It feels like Covid-19 is firmly behind us, especially as a sport.

While a year ago Super League games were still postponed due to positive team tests, fortunately this season has not been marred by these issues and in general the pandemic seems to be in our rear view mirror.

However, that’s not the cause in Australia where the virus is set to spoil the biggest game of the season.

With one win per play, New South Wales and Queensland are poised to head to the Home State decider, knowing that a victory for each side will secure the title for 2022 and the rights to bragging that accompany it.

Although the Blues look the strongest, especially after their huge win over the Maroons last time out, Queensland could have been considered to have the edge with their home advantage and New South Wales’ poor history in Brisbane. .

However, New South Wales are now the favorites with news coming out today that Queensland has been hit by Covid.

WA Today reports that two Maroons players will miss the decider with rookie winger Murray Taulagi testing positive and key player and New South Wales chief executioner Cameron Munster also testing positive in the biggest blow the Maroons could suffer at this stage.

Both were sent for PCR tests to confirm the positive tests.

Corey Oates and Tom Dearden, an opponent from North Queensland, entered the camp.
