Don’t forget testing rate. That’s a big factor.

Yeah you’re probably right. I’m just thinking it’s really hard to totally quarantine them. Then one weak link and it’s through the comp quickly.

Re: Coronavirus

You can start to reconsider it once testing becomes more readily available. But I don’t see any way that is allowed to run without testing all involved each week. The government was never going to give them access to 1000 tests a week to run a football competition while people in the community with ...

Re: Canberra Raiders prepare for tough times after NRL season suspension

I think ScoMo chose option 2. The states and public worst affected are choosing option 1. That’s now making option 2 a **** choice because you have the worst combination of most of the isolation, most of the economic pain, but your impact on the virus is not achieving either target end game.

Domestic travel restrictions add further turmoil to NRL and Canberra Raiders seasons

Risk to children is very low. Consensus view at this time is that schools should remain open. And of course they’re not just transferring it between households amongst the low risk children are they?!...

The AFL and NRL basically stop if they don’t travel so that’s about as essential as it gets. I also believe keeping the footy on as long a season possible is very important for public morale.

Not sure skewed is the right word here. It's not definitive based on the point you made. It's still the best data we have. Health authorities have identified the most likely targets and have focused testing on those people. The rate of positive cases is now less than 1 in 100. Skewed is absolutely ...

Re: Through green eyes 2020

The Raiders challenge was an out and out challenge for a breather. That’s not the intention, and not the way the NRL should allow them to be used.

Still, good on the Raiders for playing smart while that’s the rules.
