AFLW fixture reshuffled amid restrictions

The AFLW schedule for Round 2 has been rejigged after the Queensland government issued a coronavirus travel alert for Melbourne.

Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk on Thursday confirmed the state's border will remain open to Victoria, after a Melbourne hotel quarantine worker tested positive for COVID-19.

However, those who have been in Greater Melbourne since January 29 have been asked to get tested immediately.

Geelong were due to travel to Brisbane to face the Lions on Sunday, while Gold Coast were set to play Collingwood in Melbourne on Saturday.

But the AFL has quickly reshuffled the fixture to avoid interstate travel for those teams.

Collingwood will now host Geelong at Victoria Park on Saturday, while Brisbane will play the Suns at Hickey Park on Sunday.

It is the latest change to the second weekend of AFLW action after two games were on Monday postponed because of Perth's five-day COVID-19 lockdown, which is due to end on Friday night.

Adelaide, who were originally due to play Fremantle, have flown to Sydney in preparation to face GWS on Sunday.

The Crows will complete an isolation period in Sydney but the NSW government has allowed them to train ahead of playing the Giants at Blacktown Stadium without any spectators in attendance.

AFLW boss Nicole Livingstone said the league was still working on a plan for West Coast to play the Dockers this weekend.

"We will continue to remain as adaptable as possible as the season progresses in a constantly changing environment," she said.

The A-League could also be affected by Queensland's testing requirement.

Melbourne Victory are scheduled to face Brisbane Roar at Redcliffe's Dolphin Stadium on Saturday - a game that was previously postponed when Brisbane had its January lockdown.

Victory were awaiting further advice but are currently due to travel to Brisbane on Friday evening.

Meanwhile the NBL's Melbourne United travelled to Brisbane on Thursday and will be tested in Queensland.

United are due to face Brisbane Bullets on Friday.
