Robinson "wouldn't care" if AFL hubs were introduced this season


Brisbane Lions wingman Mitch Robinson is prepared to enter a hub for the rest of the season if it is required.

Robinson says he “wouldn’t care” about entering a hub again, but stressed he didn't speak on behalf of the entire playing cohort.

“For me personally, I wouldn’t have a problem doing it,” he told the Rip Through it Podcast on SEN Track.

“We’ve only got like six weeks left until finals, so for the teams that are in the finals hunt and doing that, I reckon they’ll just say let’s get it done, let’s just do it that way.

“For teams that probably aren’t (going to play finals), you know, it’s just going to be pretty hard for them to just be quarantined in their house day in and day out.”

The AFL has done a remarkable job to keep the season going to date and have tried their hardest to avoid the word ‘hub’.

Robinson, a delegate for the AFLPA, believes that the league is not asking too much of players, adding there are others in far worse situations.

“Not really, no. I don’t think so. I think there’s a lot of other people worse off. Like in Victoria they keep getting the snap lockdowns and I see a lot of people struggling,” Robinson said.

“Because we don’t have that many games left in the season and then we’ve got finals, I think let’s just get it done. But that’s just me personally.

“I think if we have to go down that path, everyone has to do it and everyone has to buy into it otherwise it’s just not going to happen.

“I think that it’s not asking too much of players to go home, go to training and then come back.

“There’s six weeks left in the season and then finals so I think that would be fine for us.”
