Super Rugby bosses are trying to find ways next year's Pacific tournament can go ahead as planned - but want flexibility from the Government.
Sports Minister Grant Robertson would like players to be able to train in isolation, but says they won't be exempt from MIQ because it's a public health matter.
Crusaders chief executive Colin Mansbridge told Mike Hosking they're exploring ways to make it so easy, the Government sees it as a low-risk option.
