    I would b pretty certain that within the next few weeks the Corona virus outbreak will affect the NRL competition w large crowd gatherings being stopped for a few weeks (so no game attendance) and also the game itself being the worlds premier contact sport being halted .. seriously you would have to think all the drink bottles sharing and spitting and face rubbing that goes on in tackles would put the game on the highest alert as a threat of the virus spreading . I’m calling it NRL will be put on stop in the early rounds for a few weeks if not longer..

    Unfortunately it will probably happen at some point this season to prevent the spread. It will be just another excuse for Mary to deflect blame on our woeful crowds.

    Good hygiene is a great way to stop a rapid spread of the virus.

    It’s a sad reflection on society that we need to be reminded to wash our hands and to cover our coughs & sneezes.

    The true problem with the virus is not so much the virus itself but the global financial meltdown it is about to cause. People are struggling enough as it is these days. This is going to get nasty.

    Think we need to rush out and stock up on toilet paper. Nothing to do with corona virus we will all get the shirts when our team strings together a few losses.

    A profoundly stupid and dangerous attitude to have towards the virus. And also selfish.

    Have you considered the many many MANY people who have weaker immune systems than yourself. Or the people that you may inadvertently infect once you are a carrier? Italy did not cancel all sport until nothing.

    Are the public overreacting when it comes to their toilet paper bullshit? Yes. The crisis is very real though

    The damage caused by panic and the press is more of a concern to me than the virus ...
    Natural selection and evolution are powerful forces but not as powerful as the stupidity of the masses.

    If there was a huge risk at the moment in sydney.they would play with no crowd.
    It might happen
    I have a relative has a immune system which is not strong,.
    So I might not attend games this year.
    Mind you I hate watching at home.

    Makes you realise what people’s priorities are, personally I’d be stocking up on rice and canned food. More than happy to hose my arse off if need be.

    Shame Shark Park is closed this year. Alcohol is supposed to kill the virus.
