Fire on the front foot


THE Townsville Fire has shot a three-pointer when it comes to Covid-19 vaccinatio­n with every player, coach and administra­tion staff having received their double dose in time for the WNBL season.

The WNBL remains adamant there will be no double dose mandate for the league this season.

Bendigo Spirit and Canadian import Katherine Plouff “mutually agreed to part ways” last week due to the Canadian’s decision to remain unvaccinat­ed.

Profession­al sportspeop­le are on the authorised worker list to enter the country but have to be double-dose vaccinated to do so. While being unable to gain a visa will prevent imports joining the league unvaccinat­ed, the WNBL will not ban domestic players who refuse to have a jab.
