Senior AFL players from the Byron Bay Magpies, tweed Coast Tigers and the Ballina Bombers will get another few weeks off as the Queensland government continues to impose a ban on community sport, despite the general lockdown in south east Queensland being lifted and as Northern NSW has gone into lockdown.

Cancelled games

The local clubs play in the Queensland AFL south division and regularly travel across the border to play games.

The last two weekends of games have been cancelled and the latest restrictions are also set to last two more weeks.

Byron Magpies president Daniel Tiffi is still waiting for updates from the governing body but believed the finals were ‘pencilled in’ to go ahead.

‘We appreciate this is unfortunate news for our game in SEQ; for our clubs, participants, officials and volunteers. We are working through the impacts of what this means for community football and our finals series,’ Queensland AFL said.

‘We ask for your patience and understanding while we work through this and we will communicate our next update as soon as we can’.
