Rebels open to hubs for trans-Tasman rugby

New Zealand Prime Minster Jacinda Ardern is expected to announce at 4pm on Tuesday a potential date for the opening of a travel bubble with Australia.

Currently, there is only quarantine-free travel from New Zealand to Australia and not the other way round.

The five-week Super Rugby trans-Tasman competition is scheduled to kick off on May 14 in Dunedin when the Highlanders host Queensland, with the five teams from each country squaring off each week.

Melbourne Rebels star Matt Toomua cleared of potentially serious neck injury

The Wallabies regular left the field for a HIA in the second half, coach Dave Wessels fearing a trip to hospital would reveal a serious neck injury as the side dropped back to fourth ahead of a bye.

But Toomua was cleared and travelled with the side back to Sydney, the inside centre unlikely to miss a game given the Rebels have a next-round bye.

Though not yet confirmed, Wallabies Tests against New Zealand are pencilled in for October this year.
