RA officials will have their fingers crossed as ticket sales from the three-Test France series were expected to provide a big shot of much-needed funds for the national body,

CEO Andy Marinos said a decision on the timing for the release of first Test tickets “as soon as practical” with guidance from Queensland’s Chief Health Officer.

If crowds are permitted, everyone attending the event will need to check in using the QR Codes at the venue.

“To fans across Austral ia, we’re thinking of you during this time and I know the team is desperate to get out there and make you proud of their performance on the field,” Marinos said.
