The upcoming 100 Year tests between the All Blacks vs Springboks have been thrown into serious doubt following the quarantine-free travel pause between New Zealand and Australia.
The All Blacks’ season has been plunged into turmoil after the government paused the quarantine-free travel bubble with Australia for eight weeks.
The match was initially scheduled to take place in Dunedin, but thanks to a revised schedule announced by SANZAAR on Tuesday, the match will now take place at QLD Country Bank Stadium in little-known Townsville on Saturday, 25 September.

In a shared New Zealand Rugby (NZR), Sanzaar and Rugby Australia (RA) statement, RA chief executive Andy Marinos confirmed the Wallabies had been in a secure bubble on the Gold Coast since their victory against France in Brisbane last weekend.
He aimed for a “positive outcome in the coming days”, with confirmation NZR boss Mark Robinson is working closely with the New Zealand government in a bid to bring Australia across the ditch.
Further changes to the Rugby Championship schedule will be announced in due course, with South Africa Rugby and Argentina Rugby Union also involved in the tournament, which was slated to be primarily played across New Zealand and Australia the next two months.
