Before anyone heaps too much praise on Mannah remember he is a Wehbe disciple. This blew up while there was falling out between the two.
There may have been more to him coming forward than a guilty conscience. Why isn’t Mannah facing a ban for his initial false evidence?
Tim Mannah retired at the end of 2019.
I live in Switzerland, about 3 hours drive from Milan. There are now over 6,000 cases here, and one of the highest per capita infection rates of any country.
Schools have shut down as of last week. Most people are working from home. The government have declared a state of emergency. Restaurants and shops are all closed. It’s now prohibited to gather in groups of more than 5 people.
I had booked two holidays in April and June. One was a week in burgundy and the other was two weeks in Tuscany. Both will be cancelled.
On the plus side, I live on a lake in a small village in the mountains so my quality of life is great and I’m lucky to be where I am in that sense. Not many people around and the spring weather is coming, so aperol spritz on the balcony while I see this out.
I’m also lucky to be able to take advantage of the weak AUD and repatriate some money back which is a massive plus.
Health risks aside, I spend about 20 hours a week in meetings about COVID-19 in my role and the year is going to be a write-off. I’m closer to the risk but still lucky in many ways (for now).
There are plenty of reasons to be optimistic and the boys showed plenty of aggression. History shows that the difficult part for younger packs is to be able to get up for the challenge 3 out of 4 weeks across a very long season, once the grind and injuries start to play a part. That’s the unresolved question I have in my mind.

A Bronx tale
Goodfellas would have to be one of my all time favourites.
There’s genius in that seemingly mundane narration. Pauly’s system for garlic. To this day I tell my wife not to put too many onions in the sauce every time she is making pasta and she has no idea what I’m talking about.
