    Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge would like to see an all or nothing approach from the AFL around game day practises

    Western Bulldogs coach Luke Beveridge would like to see an all or nothing approach from the AFL around game day practises

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    The league delivered new protocols amid the coronavirus crisis ahead of their opener against Collingwood, ordering players to avoid unnecessary contact, while ceasing sharing of water bottles, hugging, shaking hands and high-fives.

    Magpies players didn't link arms during their team song after winning.

    Beveridge says if players are allowed to play you'd assume they don't have the virus.

    He's added that tackling and flying into each other on the field's a lot worse than singing a song with your arms around each other.
