He’s been de-registered. Can’t see him back in the game anytime soon.

Question Willow…once a player is deregistered,is there a timeframe when they can apply to play in the NRL again or is he only allowed to go to ESL or rugby??

Geo would know more than me on this one but I believe the NRL can specify a set period, or make it for life, so it’s at their discretion.

If anyone has watched the video of that woman pleading on behalf of the other 100 odd Australians and Kiwis on MV Ocean Atlantic you too would be sickened. They don’t want to pay the full 9k to get home but can afford a once in a lifetime cruise to the Antarctic. With so many doing it tough in Australia they should pay or stay. I am sick of all these whinging retirees.

100%. The demanding voice was a bit rich from her. Does anyone know when and where they left from? She says “unforeseen circumstances” but given the Diamond Princess in Japan was WAY back in Feb 1, how was a cruise ship being quarantined and not being able to dock “unforeseen”?

Have they been sailing on this boat for 2 months?

I estimate a 9 Mar or slightly earlier departure based on a three week cruise. The only unforseen issue is travel insurance not covering return fare.

I think that’s a pretty good estimate.

The laughable thing is that they point the finger at the government, without making the connection that it’s my or your money that is going to pay for it. The government are only a function of the taxpayers.

As far as I’m concerned, they can pay the whole god damn fare. I would prefer to give my tax money to someone who has been locked down and lost their job or the brave medical workers who couldn’t go on holidays at a time like this.

This wasn’t unforeseen. This was their risk to take on. They can foot the bill. If they had asked differently on the video, maybe they would have garnered some sympathy. But pointing fingers at anyone but themselves is just ignorant and not going to win favours.

“their risk to take” Some acquaintances of mine were dead set going off on their world tour including europe and the middle east regardless of horrific reports coming in from Italy. Fortunately everything shut down before they could go. I don’t get that mentality at all.

Yes those selfish Australians who left knowing the danger. deserve no sympathy. Unfortunately for the older citizens, this could end their lives.

Border Farce continuing to prove they are only good for hunting toilet paper hoarders from Coles. On Channel 10 the residents who share facilities with the Swisshotel are upset about possible contamination from passengers of the Norwegian Princess. This time Tanya Plibersek put the boot in saying it is a federaf problem and we don’t want a repeat of

sickening to me that any politician continues to try and make political capital out of the pandemic - but for certain types it doesn’t surprise me…

Public criticism of Border Force and it’s performance is warranted. At the end of this, a thorough review of this organization should be undertaken.

Along with NSW Health.

Government - Can’t have more than 5 people at a Wedding or Funeral

Same Government - 3 million Queenslaners get out there, line up and vote.

Not the same government

That’s the problem. State and Federal aren’t on the same page and they need to be in regards to this.

No, a true leader would have taken control and told states it was a national emegency and all states would be following the decisions made by Federal govt as one. As it is now its no better than a dogs breakfast - all over the place.

Except it doesn’t work that way and he would be in breach of the constitution?

As stated above …Please do some research… the Feds can only advise ! the constitution does not allow the Feds to take control …the Federation of states … The PM must be frustrated not to have total control … to many cooks one thinks !

Correct.

How is the form of the 33. medical professionals who defied the new quarantine rules and returned to their home States on domestic flights ? Six were caught by Federal Police and made to quarantine. Does this. mean all other passengers on those flights have to quarantine? If so those arrogant knobs should pay all expenses as well as being punished,

I had fun with that yesterday…not! Ropable…😠

we got a long way to go in NSW to fight this. The ship docking in CQ was an utter disaster of biblical proportions

Pity it is a Commonwealth responsibility. Why do you think the NSW Police are now responsible for preventing the disembarkation of passengers and crew?

someone is to blame for over 50 infected people disembarking. I dont really care if its commonwealth; local district; tribal leader or whatever, someone screwed up…The end result is exactly the same

Border Farce were hammered again for the fiasco at Kingsford Smith yesterday. It was left to our nurses to demonstrate professionalism to these Blackshirt baffoons by measuring increases in temperature of returning passengers. Guess which organisation couldn’t enforce social distancing?

Yes, they did drop the ball on this one.
