Kangaroos haven't given up hopes of playing finals football for the first time in five years.
However they are hoping for clarity sooner rather than later.
President Peter Hurst has no doubt the competition could safely adapt to follow guidelines for allowed pre-ticketed events or major outdoor recreation facilities, if given the opportunity.
"You can go to a gym, a swimming pool or a theatre so if we can apply the same parameters and criteria I don't see why we can't play," Hurst said. "We will have to wait and see what transpires out of meetings."
Equex Centre has continued to add to its seated capacity and Hurst believes that could help.
However feedback from the government doesn't appear to be in their favour.
"They were pretty adamant community sport was 80 per cent double vaxxed," Hurst said.
As such Hurst believes any decision would need to be made quickly.
"We're just waiting to see what comes out but it needs to be quick and very direct just because of what has gone out in the media already," he said.
"It is going to take a little bit to pull everyone back on board as everyone seems resigned to the fact community sport is done."
Group Nine are waiting for further government advice before making a decision on their season.
They've had plenty of consultation with clubs on their plans to exit lockdown.
However chairman Andrew Hinchcliffe admitted discussions had not progressed to a point where a determination on the potential to award premierships if a finals series was unable to be played.
