Do you guys want to add another little clause to the next game that by the end of the next round, you have to have included at least one Wests or Balmain player in your team?

Nah. What I’d suggest is after this comp we do one of the best WT’s team since 2000.

That would be hard to fill up 10 to 12 teams worth of players. We’ve only had 230ish players over the years. Could be fun though to try and make squads out of that group.

My thoughts exactly…but just in case I reserve Makasini Richter Lupina Kaufusi and Jackson Kaufusi

But can they all play at once?

There’s more than enough players. Quality would be an issue, but we’re bias anyway.

Might have to get a bit Sheens like in a couple of positions.

I’d be up for a 90s one. Would need to stretch the memory to remember players but would be a good exercise.

Having too big an era would make it hard to compare players as 1980 is very different to 2010 in what is required in each position.

That was great. Thanks Geo kept my mind distracted. Would play again

@supercoach said in First two NRL rounds face axe if.....:

Junior was a great footballer who gave 100% every game, but to give him a gig heading up the this committee doesn’t fill me with confidence. He is a Mr nice guy type, I just think you need a ruthless hard man pulling the strings. Anyway time will tell and I really think they have Buckley’s of getting the show on the road before July and even that is long odds

I loved him as a footballer but I’ve heard him talk about his current business and try and promote its benefits in the education field and he is not someone who fills you with confidence as a leader.

Interesting graphic. For mine it shows our trajectory closer to South Korea than Japan, Singapore or Hong Kong. Specifically we have a lot more cases (careful that graph is logarithmic, not linear) but have almost stopped the growth rate. I think this has massive implications in that whilst you havent stopped or slowed the growth rate you have no chance of reopening the economy whereas IMO South Korea has a stronger opportunity to get back to something like normal.

Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong have low cases but relatively constant growth rates which may mean the damage to their economies may be more protracted.

No one knows really, but thats my take on it.

I really have a dislike of logarithmic graphs!

Looks like the yanks are easily winning the race that nobody wants to be in.Can only hope the trend worldwide starts to taper off and decline very soon.As to be expected countries that are very secretive and suppress information dont seem to supply figures(Russia,North Korea)in particular

If the Times’ article I was reading last week is accurate then China would be streaks ahead. It suggested their figures be increased by a factor of 20, based on anecdotal evidence and the number of earns being issued by the 7 funeral services in Wuhan.

Still a lot of speculation and uncertainty. I think most countries positive cases would be far higher than what we know. Positive to see people i know in china allowed to open their shops etc for a few hours a day now.

fingers crossed things can get better here in Australia…I work in education and a lot of the teachers (especially older ones) are on shaky ground as online classes are planned right up till the end of the year…cost cutting to the max …

I’m in education as well and the current plan appears to be for next term. All of the schools that I support are planning for that as the outcome and rotating staff through the school and at home depending on need. What state are you in? Might be different there.

NSW mate. really really depressing here…but thankful i still have a job…

yourself chicken?

Yeah I’m in NSW. A lot going on but schools are managing well. I support students with disabilities and mental health issues so it’s a very complex space trying to support students remotely.

That’s tough. I hope things turn out okay for you mate. If you’re in primary and secondary you should be okay I’m guessing…

I’ve taught special needs classes in the past. By far and away the best students I’ve ever taught. They’re generally so sincere and honest…

Things are tough at Uni and TAFE though

Yeah I’m the lower grades. TAFE and Uni must be getting hammered right now with a lot of students withdrawing or deferring until things die down. Hope you’re doing okay.

Was talking with some colleagues who work in the behaviour schools and they we were joking that lessons would be fun as instead of you having to follow them and try and calm them down after they tell you to get lost they can just turn the computer off. However they have found that the students are actually more engaged in learning online.
