The upcoming NBL Blitz game between Illawarra and New Zealand has been cancelled after four positive Covid test results were returned within the Breakers’ traveling party.

All New Zealand players and staff are double vaccinated.

The decision to cancel the game on Thursday, November 25, at the WIN Entertainment Centre has been made in line with the NBL’s health and safety protocols.

The health and safety of the players, coaches, clubs, staff and fans is the League’s number one priority.

The NBL will continue to follow the advice of governments and health authorities and further testing will be carried out on any individuals impacted or those deemed close contacts.
 
Each team will receive three and a half points for the NBL Blitz standings.
