Peter Dutton is not afraid to show who is in charge when it comes to deciding who comes and goes in Australia. 

In the case of letting the New Zealand Warriors NRL team into the country amid a lockdown, the Home Affairs minister has once again proven he's the one calling the shots. 

On Sunday Dutton’s office confirmed that the Australian Border Force (ABF) had granted the Warriors special permission to come to Australia.
