Brodie Retallick (NZ) — ever hear of him? And Ian Jones before him? Not to mention Willie O was a gift to Aust from NZ thanks to visa issues.

Why Super Rugby is broken and how Australia must shift the focus to save domestic game

They are all frothing! 😊

Super Rugby Radar: Only way is up as Hooper and Coleman have Tahs fans frothing

Can you actually call it an AFL game given the hybrid nature of the game, Micko? Too many compromises on the rules hence the name “international rules”.

And the results? When will that come?

Not having the Warriors in town may help!

How are Moana Pasifika and the Fijian Drua shaping up for their Super debut?

Small point: AFL doesn’t have a national team and the Kangaroos stopped playing a season or three ago. 😊

But the fact that Scotland has a dedicated program to identifying overseas players with Scottish heritage and bringing them into the fold. That’s a damning indictment on development. And what happens when their playing career is over? Do they help out with development or do they return home?

The NZ SR teams now have a senior ref embedded in each team on the provision that said ref cannot control any game involving their team

Angus Scott-Young can vouchsafe for the NZ experience. Loved his time at BoP and even did a haka for Sean Wainui! Wonder what his old man thought of that?

What you are missing is that Omicron is five times as infectious as Delta due to its mutated protein structure. If this virus continues to mutate, it’s highly likely that all vaccines will be ineffective.

FFS: NZ never bullied anyone, JN. SARU used the Aratipu proposal as their excuse to get out of Super Rugby and head North. How’s that working out? And I have never understood SA complaints about the time they spent on the road in Super Rugby when Aust, and more so NZ, sides also spent a similar time away from home.

The last time NZ did that, Jeff, Delta came into their country. WA is no doubt mindful of that peril.

No sweat but the science has never changed on this. I’m following that and doctors, not politicians. Off again!!

Vaccines are not a cure. They protect from the worst effects but they don’t confer immunity. Anyhoo, moving on from here as well … (So much moving on!)

First of all … Daily Mail?!? 😂 but KCWL can do much worse. Of the 11 deaths, nine were elderly with underlying issues and yes, age IS an underlying issue. The older you are, the more of an issue it becomes. The younger victims most likely had issues as well like maybe asthma (see Frank Pritchard) or diabetes. Can’t say for sure but moving on now …

There is a lottery system in place for the public. Sports teams like the ABs could book spots but this border closure was announced today. Any plans in place have been subject to revision.

Yes there is. Have you heard of covid-19? 😱

Congratulations! (No sarcasm). 👍 Just need to make sure you don’t keep getting it. I think I would have a similar reaction but I have no intention of finding out. And I have elderly parents to think off as well.

Go talk to the NSW healthcare workers then. They will tell you different from the politicians.

Omicron is at the border, in quarantine. If they can keep it out until vaccination rates are greater, fantastic!!

Better to over-react than under-react like NSW and Dominic Perrotet did.

Double vaxxed is not enough against omicron. It can blunt it but the booster jab is needed.

Chappell-Hadlee series cancelled due to Kiwi quarantine concerns

Covid will do that.

Report says Aust were due to play in NZ in March.

Have you missed the bit where they said omicron reinfects much easier than Delta? 15% of daily cases in the UK are reinfections.
