This game may not go ahead yet.
Warriors are having a meeting today to decide if they are staying. The plan was to have family fly over whilst they stayed out here , they cant come anymore with the border locked down.

Josh Hodgson would be hesitant to leave his young family for weeks on end, but he admits it's something he might have to do to help keep the NRL alive.

"I really do take my hat off to them. It's a massive commitment and I know it's not a decision that would've been taken lightly.

Canberra Raiders ready for 'focused' New Zealand Warriors

Canberra co-captain Jarrod Croker says the Warriors will be fuelled by the adversity they've faced in 2020.

"If they're ever going to be up for a game, this is going to be it," Croker said. "It's tough for us with everything that's gone on but first week in camp for them, they're going to feel like their backs are to the wall and they're going to come out fired up."

Good to see the warriors are using some common sence. As I mentioned a few days ago, go home if you want, just don't complain when you lining up at Centrelink for your new start allowance.
