There's growing concerns the NRL bubble could continue beyond the 2020 season as the second wave of the coronavirus continues to reshape Australia. The ACT government announced on Thursday they will keep the 1500 crowd limit for Canberra Raiders games at Canberra Stadium for at least another two weeks, which will continue to cost the Green Machine up to $400,000 per home game. The news comes as the Raiders prepared to face the ladder-leading Penrith Panthers at Penrith on Saturday night. Raiders chief executive Don Furner, who helped create the Project Apollo biosecurity measures that allowed the NRL to resume playing, felt the players would be allowed out of the bubble for their annual leave before potentially returning to it for the 2021 pre-season. The Raiders players have been in the bubble since May, although they did enjoy a brief period when their restrictions were relaxed slightly to allow them to attend restaurants and cafes - as well as have people over to their houses.
