Well done to Sauce for this preview of each clubs gains & losses.
Are they going to cancel club rugby over COVID-19?
I think it should still go ahead but we are in uncharted territories here.
All good mate going ahead.
current advice to players is to exercise caution if you have a cold.
TBH the panic is almost amusing except for how it is screwing with the economy.
Updated advice is to close non essential gatherings of more than 500 people. Can the Premier clubs manage crowds to below 500?
Where is prendergast this year?
Well Scott Morrison banned today gatherings of people over 500 people. surely Yoku Road on a GPS home game would be grounds to cancel that fixture?
I do agree with your sentiments about panic hysteria effecting our economy.
I am not wanting to create greater hysteria but I think it possible that Junior Rugby could be called off - if so I hope the clubs have their T&Cs in order regarding refunds.
yeah, I think that's sensible with regards calling if off. I'd support it 100%
I guess it might be reasonable to expect that you will see more Reds and Tahs players playing more games for their Clubs this season - assuming Senior Club Rugby continues on ?
However it seems a bit inconsistent to put the sword through Junior Rugby and then allow Seniors to bat on (no pun intended )
If the sword is put through Junior Rugby you'd expect the AIC school season to go bye byes , and with that , the GPS preseason and inevitably the GPS School season
FWIW ..I have heard this morning that Water Polo has cancelled competitions in NSW and Victoria but that for now QLD are playing on.
If the self isolation kicks in then all organised sport will be off you'd think
At the moment I'm not so sure. But once cancellation of schools and universities happen - and that seems only a matter of time - club rugby (or sport of any kind) is surely on ice.
So our Chief Medical Officer has just briefed State and Federal Government - and it seems that going to the movies and the gym is fine as is public transport. No mention of Schools and Universities however big focus on "social distancing" around the young that have "more intense interactions" - so it would only seem like a matter of time , especially the doubling rate is projected at 6 days based on current info
And once Schools and Universities go into hiatus so too everything that hangs off that - even our beloved Rugby
Will QPR go ahead this weekend?
On Saturday at the QRU AGM it was a no determination at this stage.
Preferred option seems to be games go ahead with no spectators - clearly this wouldn't be a great outcome for the loss of income but tough times call for tough measures.
Makes the NRL's plea for government compensation laughable - surely there are people/industry who would be more worthy than the poor old NRL e.g. those still suffering from the bushfires, the tourism industry, community clubs like the QPR clubs and other junior sports clubs, etc
Get in line NRL/AFL but you should be at the back of the queue should there be any handouts.
The NRL are classless scumbags asking for a handout while people potentially in harms way to catch this disease and kill their fellow citizen with infection.
I am done with that game. The rapey DV playing group is already a reason to not support them now this out of touch executive management more concerned about their bottom line then the well being of their fans.
Are there any KEY RECRUITS and KEY LOSSES for Easts
I hear they have lost Gordo their Captain, Hayes and Schiller.

Bugger. Well I guess that means no QPR for at least a month?
Seems so, however all clubs received this early this morning from ARU/QRU:
"There are a number of meetings occurring today that will allow us to arrive at an endorsed position later today. (possibly early evening) If I could ask all organisations to refrain from taking action that is over above the general health requirements it would be appreciated"
Brothers are probably correct however interesting they ignored it and announced anyway.
Separate names with a comma.
