Re: Corona Virus

Back on topic: As Paddyor posited "... the disease was more prevalent in March/April but we were less on the trail of the disease than we are now." I tend to agree, I'm surrounded by it at the moment (4 known positives) as we likely were back then but testing wasn't available or you needed two sympt...

What's your point. The existence of billionaires is unethical What are your solutions. I have no clue how to unfurl the ball of barbed wire that is the current system.

Re: Corona Virus

On the transfer of wealth (debt), the devil is in the detail. just listening to RTE, personal savings in Ireland have risen by 11bn this year a lot more than an average year I imagine. Some of those savings are due to government handouts, some are due to literally not being able to spend income oth...

That... the RFU haven't done something about it is a disgrace and makes a total joke of rugby's aspirations to moral or ethical standards. I would say being a dick is a 'core value' ...

Re: Munster Rugby - Semi Conscious, the Series Finale??? - 2020/21

Reading match reports, that was impressive from Munster. They're finally following Leinster's example and giving their young players a run of games. Maybe their hand has been forced by the IRFU, but the result is the same - they're doing something that is good for them & Irish rugby rather than jus...

Re: Corona Virus

I do like reading your posts on this, ideas right or wrong are all good. You're correct about TaT but if it was done right and isolation guidelines were followed the numbers would drop massively, but neither are happening. Leo was right, Tony scared the sh!t out of the country and went to the media...

It's fair to say Peg Leg that anyone who posts here or just lurks would have sympathy for how you and others like RoboProp and your families have had experience of COVID.

Re: Heineken Cup 2020/21

I think it's because Sale haven't gotten their sh!t together that they're in that bracket. Their game with Worcester has been called off this morning. Yeah I know - a further 6 positive tests yesterday. So they seem to be losing control of it. When do the Euro games start? Assuming they have to qua...

Re: 8 Nations 2020

Interesting to see JGP in there tough on Cooney who has been the form Irish scrum half over the course of the season albeit with a bit of a drop in form after lockdown. JGP adds clear pace of distribution, probably the best of the Irish SH's in that area. Is Lowe qualified or is that November? On a...

Re: Corona Virus

I'd say Donald Trumps treatment costs about 10k per dose and requires hospitalisation and therefore not an option. When they know what exactly makes people react to cv19 we can move to strategic shelter etc. I will never forget watching my 36 yr old super healthy wife crying for breath. We will neve...

No it means his mask didn't work.
The NPHET guys might want to take note.
He doesn't wear one, none of him or his debate prep team wore them. He was taking the drug (or claimed to be) as a preventative measure.

There is also a correlation between the opening of schools and increase in cases, relax it's not in the schools.
I know of one school that is closed with 9 teachers testing positive and over 14 students in one class.
