    I remember hearing that saying. I also remember the clip over the ear that immediately preceded it.

    It was about respecting your mother, and women in general.

    I watched the govt media conference this morning and there will be state and federal cabinet meeting this afternoon to sign off on numerous proposals, including:

    1. The closure of all non-essential businesses from next Tuesday.
    2. The suspension of interstate travel for sporting events from next Tuesday.

    Nothing confirmed yet but that's the direction they've heading in.

    In defence of the NRL, rugby league has a history of playing on through crisis. The League took what was seen as a pragmatic approach through both world wars and provided an outlet for fans through hard times.

    Granted, in this case it is also driven by revenue forces such as broadcasting and betting. But either way, it may get to the point where the decision will not be the NRL's to make.

    AFL now suspended after 1 round.

    I seriously doubt there will be a round 3 in the NRL

    Why not supply each player with a pair of those virtual reality goggles and we can have a comp without the players even leaving home.

    The single venue solution seems the only possible way it could continue on from here, surely. Almost like magic rd each week with different games on back to back each day. It could work, if they want to go that far.

    AFL gone after Sth Australia shut it's borders.

    On the news now that NSW set to shut down. So that will be it for the NRL.

    Don’t be silly. Blue is to kick and green is to fend.

    Play it all out of Canberra Stadium. The ACT has enough open space that people won’t be on top of one another.

    Great hospitals, plenty of spare accomodation right now..

    If it’s good enough for ScoMo to work out of there, it’s good enough for EuAit too..

    And the schools are pupil free from Tuesday. Another positive for the NRL risk factor assessment.

    Sorry I was replying to Dragonslayer,
    They are looking at everything but 1 venue has some merit.
    From what I know about the virus it would have to be at a place like North Queensland new home ground or a confined space like Bankwest Stadium.
    With Victoria closing the border I don't know how that's going to do affect the storm as well I've heard that by Tuesday we may also have a close border. Now I don't know if that is for sure but it looks like we will have.
