The round-four fixture will now be played at Leichhardt Oval in Sydney.

The Rebels relocated to Sydney on Wednesday ahead of the seven-day lockdown in their home state.

Melbourne had hoped to fly to Queenstown on Saturday but due to the worsening outbreak and the New Zealand government’s extension of a travel pause they are stranded in Australia.

All Rebels players and staff will be tested for COVID-19 before Sunday’s match.

The match will kick off at 15.00 local time.
