Surely there’ll be crowds. Unless we get cases up here, I can’t see why not.
I think there will be crowds as QLD isn't a hotspot or in lockdown.Is this an advantage to us or does the hotel accom and no crowds make it irrelevant?
Or will there be crowds?

There may be some sort of restrictions on the NSW teams for the next 2 weeks, but I'm not sure.
It should be an advantage to us as our squad, coaching staff, etc. will be unchanged from a living perspective. Whereas all the NSW teams will be living in a bubble for the next 4 weeks.
We play Wests, Penrith ('away'), Cows and Knights ('away').
So we were scheduled to travel to NSW twice in the next 4 weeks which should both be in SEQ now... and we will be playing 3 relocated teams out of the next 4, with the 4th (cows) having to travel to Brissie.
So it could be a nice month coming up for us...
Wests on Sunday in the middle of a relocation and the players looking like they've had enough of Madge. Could be a disrupted week for them
Penrith relocated and possibly without Luai and Cleary
Cows struggling as much as us
Knights relocated, but have Ponga back.
"No Broncos, you aren't playing the Tigers at Suncorp. We've decided that you will be playing the Storm in Melbourne instead, as it's in the best interests of the league."The NRL has said no change to the schedule but you just wait, we will get a game or three moved from Brissie to Broome just 'cos.
I saw that Hooper asked Abdo last night if the draw would be changed."No Broncos, you aren't playing the Tigers at Suncorp. We've decided that you will be playing the Storm in Melbourne instead, as it's in the best interests of the league."

I was like why the **** would the draw need to be changed... we're 3/4 through the season and relocating won't see us lose any games or rounds, so there would be absolutely no reason to change the draw at this stage.
Doesnt really make sense for a QLD home game to not have crowds.
I did notice that reporting on the lack of crowds has been followed up with "V'Lando is working hard to overturn this decision"... so reporting may have been deliberately miscommunicating to make Vlando look like a hero when Brisbane fans are allowed to go to a Brisbane home game
From what i can see there's nothing about crowd restrictions in that article.
and the Broncos haven't sent out a member mail about no crowds (which they did frequently during the Brisbane lockdown before the sharks game) ... on the contrary, i today got a member mail about a pre-sale window for Origin 3
