    Ok. That is a fair call.

    Parra play Norths next week. Eels are a very strong side from what I hear

    Just to play devils avocado for a minute isn’t your nephew technically a parra junior who is playing reps for Norths?

    A question, junior reps etc are postponed, players still attend school etc, don’t play in front of outdoor crowds of more than 500, but NSWRL includes juniors.if the don’t play they probably have part time jobs at Bunnings, Coles and others which sees them constantly with other people.
    Yet another conundrum in this current hysteria.

    I guess the point is that at Bunnings they're unlikely to pack into a scrum while out of breath and dribbling. They probably still have the part time jobs regardless of whether they play footy. It's a tough call either way. Honestly not sure what I think.

    It would be hard to have a blanket rule that covers every possible event

    Bit swayed as been in NZ for 2 weeks and fly back tomorrow, just isn't the hysteria here that have seen from home in media etc. the concern here is more that their health system isn't up to much and wouldn't sustain a big influx of patients, but overall on the South Island there's not much about it.
    Auckland tv gives it a bit , more about washing hands and being clean is the message.

    Anyway, as the virus seems to have little impact on the ages under 20, perhaps it's an overreaction. Heard Dave Trodden form the NSWRL speak on it, not convinced he understood the implications, waffled on about following Qld.

    Mate I don't think the concern is so much for the health of the under 20's....it's for their relatives and friends who may be more vulnerable.

    While i get the point about but they are still working and going to school, i reckon its all about the scale of it ..... telling the entire population to not work or go to school is incredibly more drastic than telling a fraction of the population sorry you shouldnt play footy for a while .... i think the govt would like to stop it all but cant

    There are two competing disasters they're trying to avert - the one where 500k (mostly old) people die, and the one where five million working age people wind up unemployed.

    I want to keep this question low key, but is Kandice a real person? I don’t ever have heard of them.

    Yeah he played in our SG Ball team. He was highly touted, signing with us from New Zealand, but his time here was plagued by injury. He suggested a season ending injury during the Flegg season and we let him go, presumably with a payout.

    This tells me he was never going to be good enough for first grade, but from his perspective he would feel like he never got the chance to find out. It would be a tough way to end your career.

    Jarryd Hayne: I consider him to be the most entertaining and talented rugby league player I have seen.

    Did anybody get to see him play in HM or SG ball?

    I went to a bunch of games at Cabramatta around that time but cant recall seeing him play.

    I did see Timmy Mannah play SG ball and I recall thinking he was a thug (he got into a minor fight in a scrum and had a smile on his face which I took to be thuggery). What judge of character...
    I also thought Trent Hodkinson was going to be a bit of an Andrew Johns. Haha.
