Officials - unknown
This weekend's Super Rugby Trans-Tasman clash between the Chiefs and Rebels has been shifted from Saturday to Sunday, amid Melbourne's ongoing COVID-19 lockdown.

Originally intended to be played in Hamilton on Saturday, both teams have been given an extra 24 hours to prepare for the match.

The shift will allow the Rebels time to travel to New Zealand, they are currently in Sydney after a last-minute exit from Victoria to ensure that Sunday's match against the Highlanders could go ahead.

Victoria is currently observing a seven-day lockdown after a COVID-19 outbreak in the community, with a pause on travel from New Zealand. That lockdown is due to end before round four of Super Rugby Trans-Tasman begins on Friday.

"Providing the travel pause lifts on Friday the Rebels will be able to fly to New Zealand on Saturday, but it would be unfair to ask them to travel and play on the same day," Chiefs chief executive Mike Collins says.

"The logical decision was that we push kick-off out 24 hours in the interests of fairness and player welfare and give our team the best opportunity to play at home in front of our loyal members, stakeholders and fans."

New Zealand Rugby, Rugby Australia and SANZAR are also working to put contingencies into place in case the travel pause continues past Friday.

I'd say the smart money sees this game played in Sydney after the lockdown in Victoria gets extended.

Chiefs might as well field a B team. Theyve already broken the Aussie duck. No need to save face now, no DMac to boot. Gatland will be back next year. Chuck some new blood in and start again. Wtf are the playing Messam still?

The Landers game was meant to be a home game for them too.

If the Rebels are ineligible to travel to NZ then the Chiefs won't have much choice, unless they want to see the game forfeited.

Got a close seat just above ground level on Sunday.

Good change from being 100m away in a massive stadium.

Ahh I thought the Rebs shifted to Sydney to avoid a travel ban, sounds like they cant travel regardless of where they are based..

Odds on the ban being extended by NZ so there is a very good chance this will be in NSW somewhere. Bankwest is free all weekend due to Origin

Yeah they were initially confident of being able to go to Sydney and then fly across to Queenstown for the Highlanders game. That confidence was misplaced because they'd been in Melbourne so recently and the NZ Govt presumably wasn't 'avin it.

With the NZ travel ban on Victoria set to continue for at least the period of lockdown, it likely has to be in NSW somewhere as the Rebels still won't have been in NSW long enough.

Leichhardt it is.

New Zealand Rugby (NZR) has confirmed the Gallagher Chiefs v Melbourne Rebels Sky Super Rugby Trans-Tasman match on Sunday, 6 June will be moved from Hamilton to Sydney.
The Round 4 match was originally scheduled to be played at FMG Stadium Waikato, but due to on-going uncertainty around the Rebels ability to travel to New Zealand, the match will instead be played at Leichardt Oval in Sydney.

The match will kick off at 5pm NZT (3pm AEST) on Sunday, 6 June and will be live and exclusive on Sky TV.

NZR, Rugby Australia and Sanzar made the decision to shift the match to Sydney following the extension of the Melbourne COVID-19 lockdown period by the Victorian state government (Wednesday 2 June).

It is the second time the match has had to be shifted after being moved out one day from Saturday to Sunday to give the Rebels the best chance to travel to Hamilton. Although the announcement did not effect the current travel pause between New Zealand and Victoria, it was agreed there was too much uncertainty to continue planning to host the match in Hamilton.

Poor bloody Chiefs cannot get a break after losing a crowd for the first Highlanders game as well. I hope their budgeting skills are top notch

Though it will be scant consolation for Hamilton-based Chiefs fans who wanted to attend, the game at Leichhardt will essentially be played at a neutral venue. In fact, if anything, it will still be a home game with more Chiefs fans in attendance than Rebels supporters.

I wonder if there is some kind of profit sharing arrangement. Noting it would still be a lot less than they would have otherwise got.

Being played in Sydney, at an NRL ground no less ( x( ) I can't see how the Rebels could lay claim to 100% of the gate takings.

I noticed that last weekend in the Highlanders game, the Landers were treated as the 'home team'. Home team signage, pre-game run out and so forth.

It was their home fixture, just as this weekend is the Chiefs home game. Even though it ha to be played away, it still counts as their home game, so they should get a fair slice of the gate, SANZAAR should have a contingency in place to compensate teams caught out like this.

It should be a great turnout. Brooky can squeeze in about 15k at the moment.

I reckon they'll get 10k+ to the game

Looks a good wee ground too. There's not a bad seat at AAMI here either, proving purpose built rectangular fields absolutely kill giant multi-purpose grounds when it comes to the match day experience.

OP amended with the teams

Chiefs: Kaleb Trask, Shaun Stevenson, Anton Lienert-Brown, Quinn Tupaea, Bailyn Sullivan, Bryn Gatland, Xavier Roe, Luke Jacobson, Lachlan Boshier, Pita Gus Sowakula, Tupou Vaa’i, Josh Lord, Angus Ta’avao, Samisoni Taukei’aho, Reuben O’Neill. Reserves: Bradley Slater, Oliver Norris, Sione Mafileo, Mitch Brown, Zane Kapeli, Brad Weber, Alex Nankivell, Chase Tiatia.

Great to see Roe starting - Gatland - will be interesting to see if there has been any improvement.

Jacobson is the captain
