Prison break: Raiders fans risk huge penalties if they lie to get to NRL final

It's an honour system - like buying eggs off the side of the road - but one that comes with the potential for six months in prison if you break it. That's what faces any Canberra Raiders fans who decide to run the gauntlet and break the Queensland government's border restrictions for the NRL preliminary final against the Melbourne Storm. Everyone who flies up for the grand final qualifier at Suncorp Stadium on Friday night is required to fill out a Queensland border declaration stating they haven't been in a coronavirus hotspot in the 14 days preceding their visit. NSW is considered a hotspot given there's more than 24 active cases, which - as The Canberra Times revealed - means anyone who went to the SCG for the Raiders' semi-final victory over the Sydney Roosters wasn't allowed to go to the preliminary final. It also means anyone who lives across the border in Queanbeyan or the surrounding NSW regions can't go without spending two weeks in quarantine - or the ACT - first.
