I think that is inevitable and they are possibly are covering until some event outside their control stops them. Maybe to try to avoid lawsuits and complete devastation.

    The NRL posted a $75 million profit for 2019. So where will that leave the SANZAAR unions, with at least one of them insolvent already? I think there is a fair chance that both codes could revert to pretty much amateur operations for quite a time. Maybe not the worst outcome - and a chance to learn from past mistakes?

    Well the broadcasters could stop paying if matches aren’t played so the NRL is kicking on. Some CEOs have said loss of match day revenue could cost them millions.

    The NZRU is already going to lose millions and budgeted for a loss next year. That was pre virus. Ardern’ s announcement could require Government assistance.

    The RA will lose big money no wonder slime ball has resigned. He did this at the NAB too.

    Decided to look into the NZ political situation. NZ preferred Prime Minister:

    Jacinda Ardern - 42%
    Simon Bridges - 11%

    Sheesh, I read this thread without signing in, and had the pleasure of reading posts from a member on my blocked list. The only member. I cannot express my disdain for this contemptible individual. A troll living in his mums basement is one thing, to dismiss the suffering and death currently afflicting the entire planet is several orders of magnitude higher in the brainless thoughtless arsehole category.

    Congratulations maaate, I didn't think my expectations of you could increase, but you managed it with ease.

    Scott Morrison has just announced the same travel restrictions as New Zealand.

    Edit: New restrictions come into effect at midnight tonight.

    I think I fixed that for you Bison. This contemptible individual claims to be a parent and a member of a Rugby club. Hard to believe on both counts.

    We have been in recession for at least a year.

    Not acknowledging it doesn't mean it hasn't already happened.

    We got what we voted for.

    And some of us are going to die because of it.

    If the Super Rugby season can’t be concluded that would have been Beale’s last game in this country. Popped his hammy in the last line of defence when Powell sold him a dummy. Scoreline was similar to the hammering the Force gave them.

    Cameron Smith at the presser after Storm V Manly today not toeing the company line; calling for the immediate suspension of the NRL. Maybe after 18 seasons on top dollar he does not need to worry about paying rent and school fees as do lots of the journeymen on base contracts.

    Yes it is. Maybe that's why I like it.

    Hands up who knew a Gerro boy could grow up to be a Rugby snob. Better not talk that way when you go over to Windsor Wolves for a cheap F n C with a pint on Friday nights, X.
