The AFL was forced to postpone the Hawthorn and Collingwood clash on Sunday after the first COVID-19 case was recorded in Tasmania in over a year.
Prime Minister Peter Gutwein announced the decision today and forced the two clubs to return to Melbourne for the game.
The new coronavirus case was a 31-year-old New South Wales man who had flown from Victoria to Tasmania.
He had no approved permit and was stopped at the airport, then he was placed in hotel quarantine, where he returned a positive result.
Round 21 was originally scheduled for Melbourne but was moved to Launceston to accommodate up to 10,000 spectators It would have been the Pies’ first game for Premiership points on the Apple Isle and the state’s 11th game this season.
