Exemptions for Eagles and Dockers to return to WA

An at home Western Derby could be on the cards for the West Coast Eagles and Fremantle Dockers with Premier Mark McGowan confirming both sides can play against each other during their 14-day quarantine period.

He also confirmed the teams will be able to self quarantine at home when they return from the QLD AFL hub,”subject to very very strict conditions.”

“The ball will be in their court to do the right thing when they come back and home quarantine,” said Mr McGowan

“All of these things are subject to very strict conditions that the Police Commissioner and Chief Health Officer have worked on in conjunction with the teams.”

Any other teams that may come to WA for a possible AFL hub will have to quarantine for 14-days in a hotel.
