Re: Corona Virus

It's a truism. It's not relevant to the decision whether or not to lift restrictions except in terms of estimating the risk. Our Taoiseach stated yesterday that people (I Ireland) are 150 times more likely to die from COVID19 if they are over 70 years of age. He said people under the age of 9 have ...

Re: Pro14 season suspended

I still think the best (aka least bad) option is to combine this season and next. Have 2019-21 season. Whatever games haven't played are null and void. Alternatively, award Leinster the title. I get the point that winners are decided by the playoffs system but when you have a team that's been utterl...

Re: Corona Virus

I hope those in such positions recognise, or remember, how debilitating is life without anticipation. Have you considered how debilitating it can be when you're dead? Just one post ago you were talking about how the government made a mistake in ignoring the care homes and now your willing to throw ...

Re: Corona Virus

I am stuck in London lads (I live in switzerland)..and will be stuck here for a few more weeks.....the situation here is jaw droppingly shambolic. Not just the governments approach but the amount of doctors & nurses falling like flies to covid19 is astonishing. Some NHS staff are using bin bags to ...

Re: Corona Virus

Bit of perspective from the other side. I work for the NHS in the UK. It is an utter shambles in terms of how the response has been organised. Don't forget cough, shortness of breath, fever, fatigue are very generic symptoms. They could be any viral infection not just covid19. The diagnosis is only ...

Re: Corona Virus

Why would bcg have any correlation to covid 19? There was an interesting paper on it, the BCG vaccine helps to boost the immune system of the respiratory tract. However, The BCG is only believed to be effective for around 15Yrs before you need a booster. Most people between 1953 and 2005 got it in ...

Re: Corona Virus

Was wondering why are children apparently unaffected. What is different about children to the rest of the population and teens too. Could it be related to their growth hormones. Are there other groups showing a similar resilience. Groups who use creatine perhaps I don't know about covid-19, but one...

Re: Movie Thread

Anyone know of a cure for Vertigo, the balance/ear version, or even a treatment that works for it or even eases it. All depends on what is causing the problem in the first place. But, a good place to start.... https://www.brainandspine.org.uk/our-publications/our-fact-sheets/vestibular-rehabilitati...

Re: 6 Nations 2020

I'm no fan of the Welsh so I can't believe I'm actually defending AWJ but I don't see how that kind of behaviour from Marler has any place on a rugby pitch.

Re: 6 Nations 2020

This England thing of winding up needs punished. Peyper failed abysmally in our game. If I’d have been porter I’d have started swinging to be honest because of the ref isn’t gonna deal with it.... O’Keefe not a lot better there now. Should’ve carded Farrell. And as for joe Marler... not sure where ...

Re: Corona Virus

1 player tested positive today, 7 uther people self isolating (unclear if just management or a mixture with other players). Both captains runs would have been today. Scotstoun is widely used by the general public..... Shocking as it is, R0 isn't that high, it's not measles. For the sake of comparis...

Re: Leinster v Salarysins

I wonder what would the tournament organisers do if the game was a semi-final? Y'kow, were they are the ones getting the big slice of the cake. not disagreeing but I cannot see how the french quarter final can go ahead....with the 5,000 ban in france...unless it is behind closed doors.

On the off chance that the final proceeds :- A group of us (10) are booked on the Friday afternoon flight into Lyon but are having problems booking seats on a train from Lyon to Marseilles, no direct trains on offer that day - they're normally at least hourly. Anyone else have the same problem ? St...

Re: 6 Nations 2020

Anyone know the attendance for Racing's game today? Seems a bit inconsistent as to which events are being cancelled but I do think the rest of the 6 nations is very vulnerable. french only called the 5,000 temporary ban today at about 1600...it would be a bit odd if they allowed the champions cup f...
