Roll on Saturday March 13
Eighteen months is a sensible conservative guess as far as the border goes.I wouldn't put much on Auckland being listed. It's either hopefull or an oversight.
Also could be a place holder seeing as where we will be based next year is still up in the air.
Even with the vaccine announcements we haven't received any yet and the government is still meeting around how what percentage of people would need to be vaccinated before they open the borders. There was also a headline that the borders could be shut for another 18 months. Sure Australia could be different but still a bit hopeful at this stage.
That would make sense for us fans.I notice we have a few times where we play teams twice within 5 rounds.
Some of which happen before we have played other teams even the once.
I'm a big fan of shortening the comp down so we just play each other once but while we have to live with this longer format, surely we can play everybody once first and then do the doubles up after that.
