    People in NQ may be lucky thanks to the humidity. It ain't spreading bad in SEA. A lot of people may think the govt are under reporting it, but you can't hide 500 million people having a pandemic virus ripping through cities, especially when Italys health system is about to collapse with only 10,000 cases.

    I'm living in Thailand and we were warned we'd be smashed worst after Hong Kong by end February. Yet our last 11 cases were 10 dudes sharing a joint with 1 guy who had it. On average its 1 person a day. And we had 50,000 people from Wuhan visit Bangkok during Chinese New Year... Still less cases in all of Thailand then just NSW. Add in India and Bangladesh to the mix and like 15 people have died out of 2 billion people in Asia so far who should have likely been exposed to corona earlier than Australians.

    Aside from humidity, there's not much that makes sense. Theres more dense living, open eating, more tourists and less sanitation here than Australia obviously. The only 2 things that make sense are we've already had a weaker strain and haven't noticed or humidity makes it difficult for the virus to survive and spread. Especially when u consider Japan and Korea are both cold and still got hit bad. So could be good news for the aussies up in the humidity soaked tropical zones.

    Who could have predicted that!

    Do the TV networks have to pay the NRL?

    So does this mean clubs can allow some season ticket holders in each game?

    My guess is there’s some type of insurance arrangement.

    I suppose you could, but it’s probably too late to work our who for this round.

    Fair play, looks like you were right.

    I still see it as an overreaction in the case of Australia at the moment but better to shut things down for a month and nip this in the butt if possible.

    You could fly Jetstar Townsville to Denpasar until a couple of years ago but the route was closed as uneconomic, so there are currently no international flights.

    Not confirmed yet - the government can always choose not to follow that advice.

    We cross live to ScoMo at the Sharks game:
