Re: Coronavirus

On a positive note, there has been an uptick to just over 90 in those who have recovered from Covid-19. Yes the numbers confirmed are going up way too fast, but at last there is firming evidence in Australia that the treatments are working. Whichever body is responsible for allowing people confirme...

Re: Jordan Rapana on verge of Canberra Raiders return as coronavirus ruins Japanese union stint

Japan are limiting tests to ridiculous levels.

To be honest, Japan might be a better place to be than Australia shortly, if the numbers are to be believed. Depends on which numbers you're looking at.

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

If they moved all of the players out to **** nowhere TODAY and kept them isolated I'd be happy with the comp continuing.

But there's just no way they should continue to travel to keep the comp going. People shouldn't be allowed to travel between towns already!

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

The AFL was left with no choice with SA and WA effectively "closing their borders", by requiring self isolation for anyone who enters. If NSW, Victoria, Queensland and the ACT follow, the NRL in all liklihood don't have any choice either. They would have had to take the "Townsville option" earlier ...
