The Warriors could return home as soon as today.
The National Rugby League suspended their season last night because of the coronavirus pandemic.
Australian Rugby League Commission chairman Peter V’landys said one of the reasons they acted so quickly was to allow the Warriors to get home before the borders closed completely.
The Warriors have been based in the northern New South Wales town of Kingscliff for the past 10 days.
Warriors CEO Cameron George said all efforts were being made to book flights for the team and staff as soon as possible.
“It’s a disappointing time but we anticipated it would reach this point at some point soon,” said George.
“Our priority now is to fly the players back home to Auckland to be reunited with their families.
“In terms of the club’s short and long-term future, we have much to work through and to consider.
“Clearly this crisis has already had a huge financial impact on the club and we face some real challenges but our owners are committed to ensuring the Warriors survive this,” said George.
