Is it a NSW club culture philosophy being applied to a Qld based situation ?????

Hi Gad

While I don't fully support them I still hope not.

Well if they cancel the whole season you will be hard to beat 

Good job on winning so far kmcrosby78, LOL.

Hopefully the season does resume.

Well, I`m not sure about you guy`s, but I`m willing to give all the refs, touchies and the Bunker crews an A+ pass for this weekend  

Stay safe guys 

I disagree @Gad - I am of the opinion they didn't make one single correct decision all weekend ............

don`t get caught out.... it`s that time of season when our time zones go back to normal on the east coast,........ AEDST finishes this Sunday morning.
To celebrate these 2020 time zone re-adjustments Annatacia  Palaszczuk has closed our borders so the eskimoes can not devastate our whiting stocks giving Qld fans affected by the NRL close down, plenty of social distancing space to get a feed for our family

now it`s good news  timefor Maroon fans ... 

The coronavirus pandemic will almost certainly prevent Adelaide from hosting an Origin match this year with the series to revert back to Sydney and Brisbane.

Not necessarily @Gad  ....... "Should the Adelaide venture be put on ice, NSW would be favoured to receive two games this season because Queensland enjoyed a home-ground advantage with an Origin double at Suncorp Stadium in 2017".

Perhaps if the Moreton Island idea gets off the ground, all three games might be in Qld .........

There was talk of isolating all the players on Moreton Island and ferrying them across for games.

Pie in the sky, I reckon. However I hope something happens so I can watch something on the tele worth watching.

Awesome. Sand hills training. They could re purpose the airport at Cowan Cowan

I think I heard on the radio last week that part of the plan would be to create training fields at the airport, but I could have that wrong.

I agree, I'm getting a bit over watching jelly wrestling all day long also ............

Hi kmcrosby78

Yes, same here. At least it will be something that is live and happening (apart from the news and). I don't watch jelly wrestling as well, LOL.

That may all be well and Dandy, if it happens  but....... 
WHAT if some of the 'any thing for a story'  southern NRL media reports are right for once. Gus 'The Goose' Gould to replace Todd Greenberg as CEO......... The Game will never be the same, but at least it will still be played on a rectanglular field

I just had a read and the tipping will remain unchanged (apart from the draw itself changing), so if you have tipped into the future you will need to change them once the draw is settled.

From the NRL website -

"

Tipping

Status

The 2020 NRL Tipping season remains suspended in pre-Round 3 state of the old draw. 

NRL Tipping will be updated to implement the fixtures for the new 20-round NRL season approximately 48 hours after the fixture update is published by NRL.com.

State of Origin matches will not be included. 

WNRL fixtures may still be included in the 2020 NRL Tipping competition.

We may also need to make some other adjustments to the advertised game length or play (e.g. the Streak competition, WNRL). Should such changes occur they will be clearly communicated well before the next round of play gets underway.

Further updates on this will communicated ASAP.

Your Tips

Until NRL Tipping returns you can continue to interact as if the new round(s) is(are) imminent. This means that, currently, future round tipping is based on the original, unadjusted draw.

Once we have updated the fixtures to align with the new draw, you will need to ensure you alter your future-round tips, as all previously made tips for future rounds will not exist.

Competitions

As the NRL Tipping competition had officially begun your tipping points and the associated public/private competition ladders and rankings remain unaffected. The game remains active and we will adjust fixtures and the season length as advised above.

Currently, you can still manage your competitions and check your competition results as normal.

Hi everyone

GO BRONCOS GO BRONCOS GO BRONCOS GO BRONCOS!!!!  

(I've found a loophole to watch the footy on a school night, do homework in front of the telly with the footy on)

Seriously though, I hope everyone enjoys this season (despite the fact that the atmosphere might be slightly weird because there's no crowd) and I hope you can all win some of your bets/tips you place.
