I love rugby - it is a fantastic game in so many ways. The culture that comes with rugby is also, in my view, the greatest of any sport. Play hard and strong on the pitch then all go down the pub after. So, I really hate having to say this, but if the Olympics are to be held this year (which I think almost everyone agrees they should not), then surely high contact sports such as this (and judo, karate, wresting etc.) need to be cancelled. There is no way to play rugby without a high degree of physical contact. Stay Home - Stay Safe.

So, all the women in the photo are healthy (no masks) and the officials are infected (all masked)? Hmm. "Operational test" indeed!

Do or can they wear masks and shields playing this game?
