    Parra or Penrith games maybe. No chance for the rest.

    I would think only paid up members will get entry under the 25% rule,

    From UNI:


    With the latest news from the NSW government regarding major recreation facilities, the Sydney University Football Ground will only be able to hold between 500-600 people.

    Newcastle 45 - 7 Penrith.
    In the earlier colts and "second grade" games, Newcastle were successful in winning 71-0 and 24-0 respectively.

    Probably not a reflection of how Newcastle will perform against other quality opposition in the Shute Shield, so still very interested to see how they'll go. Could be a long competition for Penrith.

    That’s not a good result. I wouldn’t expect Newcastle to be stronger than anyone except maybe Parra.

    Easts beat Uni by a small margin however Uni played with 14 after a Red Card in the opening minute.

    A couple of colts 1s scores I heard were Easts over Uni, and Gordon over Rats (about 5 tries to 1) in a very fiery encounter,

    1. The Beasties: sounds like sour grapes from a disgruntled local who doesn't like the club's DA. Bloody robber-iners are anti Australian!
    2. Manly crowd - the club organised for the approved 1700 crowd to get free tickets, accessed from their web site in the days leading up to the game. Didn't go so can't speak about what happened on the day.

    Yep, certainly going to be a long season for Penrith if that's any true indication of where they're at

    Was at Manly Oval - was very well handled.
    Having a number of vantage spots enabled it to be possible.
    Was a good day.

    Looked pretty clear from the photos that no social distancing was being practiced at Woollahra --- especially on the balcony.
    Same problem at the NRL once they reverted to home venues --- big cluster of people all sitting together at the half way line.
    If that happens at the SS this weekend I'm worried we're going to be forced back to no crowds, especially now that there are new outbreaks in Sydney.

    Hunter Wildfires v Penrith. Nice touch, bringing back the Wildfires name - using the broader "Hunter" rather than just Newie.

    It's quite OK Coach. They are are all family groups and that's allowed. :)
