There was no reason why this game couldn't have been played apart from our useless government requirements.
I am guessing that you do not keep up to date with the pandemic.

Australia is about to explode with the Delta variant.

The Delta variant is like a new disease. You catch it walking past someone in the street.

There is no way they should be trying to hold a packed league match in a stadium, when it is very clear that the dam border needs to be locked down tight until vaccination rates climb...so at least till the end of this year and realistically early next year.

You do not want this new strain here, the only way to control it is massive hard lockdowns as NSW are about to slowly work out for themselves.

We do not want it hear I promise you that much, it would mean locking the whole country down for months.

Also, it is so stinking bad that the entire NRL has to get away from it so......dont bring that shit here.

I don't usually support the Kiwibuild crew but apparently public opinion polls show people support the border rules...and I sort of agree.

Until they can get people vaccinated it is all they have to stop the delta strain going nuts.

I would put money on the probability there will be no games next year either.

So will you still support the kiwi build crew if it gets in, while we twiddle our thumbs with the lowest vaccination rate in the world?

<10%

Fucking joke compared to the rest of the civilised world.

It appears they are low on the list because they wouldn't pay$40 million to get further up the list.

Apparently that decision was made by a low level bureaucrat last year and is possibly difficult to change.

If so that is a serious mistake. The economic loss of an outbreak would be way more than $40 million

Vaccine roll out is actually going quite well, slow at first, now we are vaccinating fairly good numbers, not too far off track.

Should be sweet early next year.

Sounds like a bit of a rash decision as the bubble with Queensland may of been open by then by all accounts. but ah well...

The bubble with Qld is open from Monday.

The Warriors are staying at Mercure Gold Coast 400 metres from my house.

And playing the Panthers at Robina on Sunday a match I will get to.

The cloud has a silver lining ... I was booked to be in Auckland on Sunday for my mums birthday but the bubble shut. So I cancelled.

But I get to see us play the Panthers on Sunday.
