I reckon we will be seeing more than just a game of rugby league at Suncorp Stadium on Saturday afternoon.

The decision by the Queensland government to allow 2000 fans to watch the Titans take on the Dragons is just a first step but it is a big one. With Queensland Health understandably anxious about community spread of Covid-19 it is vital that all the conditions set down by government officials to allow the return of spectators to venues are followed to the letter.

That means everyone adhering to social distancing, correct hygiene measures and staying in their allotted seating. Above all, it means using common sense. We all saw what happened over the last couple of weeks when players and journalists let their guard slip for a moment and unwittingly broke the government’s strict bio-security guidelines.

Months of hard work by NRL, government and venue officials were jeopardised. So that means no autographs, selfies or even patting a player on the back as he walks of the field.

With so much at stake I reckon that’s a small price to pay.

What do YOU reckon?
