AFL players are returning to training on Monday, and the AFL Players’ Association doesn’t want people to be trying to catch AFL players out in breaching restrictions, stating it would amount to a witch hunt.
They’ll be tested for coronavirus twice a week, and then once a week once the season recommences. Those found to breach the rules will face stiff penalties.

Bartenders have relished the “phenomenal” feeling of pouring a beer into a glass pint and diners have embraced a glimmer of normality as NSW restaurants and bars reopened after an easing of Covid-19 restrictions.
