NZ Warriors will reportedly be granted exemptions from the Australian and NZ Governments to travel across the Tasman, when the NRL season resumes.
According to Australia's Channel Nine, the NZ-based team won't be subject to the standard border protocols put in place to stem the coronavirus pandemic, which dictate that travellers must spend 14 days in self-isolation.
That means the club can return to Australia to play in a revamped competition, expected to be finalised at an ARL commission meeting on April 21.
Dubbed 'Project Apollo', the new structure would likely feature a dual conference system, with one operating out of NSW and the other in Queensland.
The Warriors would be asked to relocate to one state for approximately 2-3 months to complete the competition.
The commission has targetted May 28 to resume the 2020 season, allowing a four-week pre-season.
Wednesday marks the end of the Warriors' initial 14-day quarantine, after returning from Australia when the season was suspended.
