    The things in favour of the NRL and the AFL is that they are domestic competitions, both are thinking of re-starting in May/June with the completion being played in one location once state based 14 day isolation periods are met.

    GRR is an international competition and with International travel being non-existent at the moment and also for the foreseeable future they are definitely in a different basket. You do realise that Scott Morrison has said that lockdowns in Australia are most likely to continue until September? The same with the borders being closed? How do you plan an international completion with so much uncertainty? They could try a plan similar to the NRL or the AFL and play it all in one location, perhaps they've put that to the players and they weren't fans of it?

    Super Rugby won't be starting anytime soon and by soon I mean months.

    The ICC T20 World Cup is currently still scheduled for October but if the borders to the country are still closed closer to the date I guarantee you that it will very much be postponed or canceled because the next T20 World Cup is only 12 months after this years event. BCCI won't give up hosting a World Cup just to accomodate us.

    Nah. He's just a dick. But you're probably on the mark about the state of his keyboard.

    Mitch Hardy has posted his latest Rugby Wrap Episode 4 and Mark Evans is a guest for the first half, along with Heath Tessman and Mick Colliss.

    Well worth a listen for good 30mins or more. I think we are in good hands with Mark Evans.
    - 8 x GRR teams is still a good possibility for next year. No hints as to who the extra teams maybe, although I think he said there is still a lot of interest from Japan
    - GRR 2020 is cancelled, but still possibility of games against the other Super sides later in 2020, depending on health rulings.
    - he thinks France and Japan are in best financial shape to come out of this crisis intact. Every other country, in his opinion, are going have re-calibrate their competitions, teams, player numbers and salaries.

    Tessman said
    - they are doing video analysis of Australian Supper teams, in preparation
    - Western Force players are represented by RUPA, but are obviously not involved in the RUPA and RA salary discussions

    Trolls don't have birthdays as the were originally "created" by the original Dark Lord Morgoth before the first age. Initially they only inhabited dark smelly subterranean realms, but later ventured out into the world to dwell under bridges or their mummy's basement. Dead set!

    Bugger, a Freudian Slip on my part. Where I grew up, supper was dinner or your major meal of the day.

    Perhaps my sub-conscious was hoping that the Force eats them for dinner.

    Perhaps I was dreaming of something like roasted Waratahs as the main course, washed down with a couple of glasses of Red.

    Yes, the difference between dinner and supper is a cloudy one. As a young late-nighter, I would have dinner with family in the early evening, but a late supper when I was out with friends or visiting - similar to other residents of the Shire (of Kalamunda that is)

    Aragorn: Gentlemen, we do not stop till nightfall.
    Pippin: What about breakfast?
    Aragorn: You’ve already had it.
    Pippin: We’ve had one, yes. What about second breakfast?
    Merry: I don’t think he knows about second breakfast, Pip.
    Pippin: What about elevenses? Luncheon? Afternoon tea? Dinner? Supper? He knows about them, doesn’t he?
    Merry: I wouldn’t count on it.
