This morning, the AFL announced several changes to the round five fixture as a result of Queensland and Victoria quarantine requirements.

The statement reads:

THE AFL has made several changes to the upcoming Toyota AFL Premiership Season Round Five fixture for this week as a result of changes to the Queensland Government quarantine requirements related to Victorian-based AFL teams entering the state.

The AFL was advised that the Queensland Government was altering exemptions it had previously provided because of concerns over Melbourne’s Covid-19 hotspots.

The alteration requires that any Queensland or Queensland-based team who plays in Melbourne or against a Melbourne team in Queensland is required to quarantine after the match for 14 days if they are remaining in or returning directly to Queensland. 

As a result, the AFL has adjusted this week’s fixture with Carlton now playing St Kilda at Marvel Stadium on Thursday night. The West Coast Eagles will now play Sydney Swans at Metricon Stadium on Saturday and Richmond are now playing Melbourne on Sunday at the MCG.

The full revised Round Five fixture now reads (changed games in bold):
