    that's not a bad idea. A 'pre-season' period of friendlies before christmas might be quite fun, an opportunty to play some local rivals and perhaps some unfamilar names

    flu is not a coronavirus

    common colds are caused by about 200 viruses, most commonly rhinovirus but also the four common corona viruses

    as an aside... a friend flew into the UK yesterday from germany (her mum who lived in Germany died a few weeks ago).

    She said there was SD on the plane, but on her arrival back in the UK there were no medcial checks whatsoever (not even a "have you had a cough style questions). Just passport, customs and outside.

    There is no reason to expect the people on the plane are more infected than the people already here

    This may answer the reason why

    I've heard zero games have been canceled in North korea rugby league. NKUnion has suffered tremendously. The only person fat enough to prop has been missing. So there are just using FK for knock on

    Interesting scenarios - micro-leagues not very far from my round robin idea in post #9.

    What's TaB? And what difference does it make to the scheduling?
    If you can keep your head when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you... you must be a rugby referee!

    The first death from H5N1 was in May, 1997. The problem they have found with vaccines for the avian flu, is that immunity is short lived. 23 years on, that’s not been resolved, partly because testing vaccines on humans is dangerous & Pharmaceutical companies don’t like liability risks, preferring quick profits.
    When one gets the flu jab each winter, it protects for the season ahead. With Covid19, even when they finally find a vaccine the worry is that immunity will be 2 to 3 months only.

    For Rugby, I suspect checks on temperature before being allowed on the field of play. Perhaps next September is a bit soon to hope for a change in the present situation.
