    It is Nigel Owens' take I'd give the most weight to.

    Possibly, but I think the big selling point the AFL GF has is it is probably the one big chance for people to ever go to one, full stop. Even at the MCG there are damn few tickets ever made...

    Perhaps, but I remain to be convinced by what Australian rugby thinks it wants when they struggle for points of view outside Sydney. It is ultimately down to broadcasters, so assuming this is still...
  4. While the AFL can be douches, only question for...

    While the AFL can be douches, only question for mine is the higher degree of lockdown to travel from NZ since last week. At the same time, if they can handle teams from the ES, surely they can handle...
  5. Can't see it being much of an issue though....

    Can't see it being much of an issue though. Unless the AFL was prepared to actually pay for the ground to not be used, they aren't going to turn away a full ground fee. So it would be put up or go...

    I doubt insurance would cover anything. It wasn't force majeure, they just chose not to show up. Insurance probably excludes Covid as a valid cause these days anyway.

    Well done Captain Obvious, the problem isn't the idea, it is all thick planks of wood barricading the way.

    Can't see how any of the advance fees or similar would fall to the AB account...they'd be looking to get that back from RA. Cancellation costs for the quarantine hub, accommodation, etc, maybe...I...

    Got to feel that not being willing to fly a day early indicates a certain lack of commitment to making it work. Particularly compared to the Wallabies flying to NZ early before the first BC match,...

    Gladys would probably let them have full crowds with no masks as well...
  11. And didn't they change the date on short notice?...

    And didn't they change the date on short notice? That alone would normally see a significant amount of wasteage, yet everyone seems to have accommodated it. I seriously doubt that would have happened...

    Only if RA are paying to use it cold. There is no return on investment if they are paying millions just so someone will give them thousands back for venue hire.
  13. For RA absolutely, and IMO WA is definitely their...

    For RA absolutely, and IMO WA is definitely their best bet when it comes to finding a hungry audience if they are set on a double header. But nothing in it from the point of view of the WA gov't wrt...

    Sounds to me like a play for money from the WA gov't. Don't know why they would bother though, given there would be zero economic benefit from travelling fans. If they want the seats that is fine,...

    Disagree with your first statement. It will look very similar to the spread of cases and thousand odd deaths they're saying constitute acceptability for dropping all the barriers (assuming they've...

    I don't disagree with the sentiment, but do think you've got your premise wrong. They are persistently not learning, probably because they are being told they are getting it right. Minus the partial...

    Seems strange, they would all have been in NZ for weeks by then and I didn't think there was any quarantine from NZ. TV insistent on having something on the 28th?

    Perth is the middle Test from memory, and there are direct flights between NZ and Perth. They probably could manage it if they treated the whole as a tour, seeing as WA is probably better than NZ at...

    I just can't see RA having anything like the stomach to do what is necessary though.

    Much, much harder way to go, but I think the only way Australian rugby is ever going to get anything resembling...

    One big difference though...that rust was being knocked off BoP in a warm-up match for the M10C that will keep their best players busy for the next few months. It was being knocked off the Force...

    Was chatting with a BoP supporter after the game, and his opinion was that where the Force was clearly superior was in structure. Can't help feeling that might say something about the main focus in...

    TBH, that is probably expecting a little much for a random friendly. If it were actually leading somewhere, towards a real NRC replacement perhaps, there might have been some merit in streaming the...
