Aotearoa relies heavily on tourism and needs that sector to stimulate the economy. Even mainstay farming has been hit hard because of the shortage of foreign workers coming into help out. Like Akula said, the mandate is to get to 80% then get people thru the turnstiles..

Apparently, the ARU only found out about the cancellation via social media.

And they weren't too happy about it were they...

Love the Blackness but it was a sham. Mt Smart Stadium to appeal to Sth Aucklanders but stadium half empty, Tongan players paying for MIQ themselves, hard to get worked up for that one :(

Look at his Jersey , Glaringly obvious hes eligible to play for Japan. Take the blinkers off mate and get used to the fact Japan doesn't produce physical specimens to match the bulk of a lot of international teams, but in saying that Himeno had a cracker season for the Highlanders!!

This is turning into a farce, buy the best players possible and totally shaft the weakest opposition who don't have resources to match this obviously well oiled and Cashed up machine. Sad state of affairs for the little man just starting his rugby in Japan, work you bum off in the Japanese system, then a truckload of foreign rugby players decide to take up Japanese citizenship and deny you your spot you've worked half your life for...just sad..

Posted in: Japan to launch new professional rugby league in 2022 See in context

Japan has more registered players than some of the home Unions particularly Ireland, Wales & Scotland.

I agree with Mr Kipling and have always been been frustrated by the need to introduce foreign players to bolster the ranks at the expense of promising local players. That mindset of acquiring big names on their off contract is more common place these days and quite unfair to local talent. Something needs to change in Japan as the pension plan for semi retiring Intl Rugby players., the system is just getting used and has become a joke imo and even players have gone on the record to say Japan is an easy out and paycheck...easy on the body good for the wallet...

That was a painful watch from a Kiwi POV. First international for an age, rusty blah blah. Glad to see the boys having a beer together after the game and Michael Hooper getting a congratulations speech for his 100th for Australia, good Anzac camaraderie there...

Good luck to them. Not saying better off without them but oversaturation is not a good thing. Travel times to the republic were horrendous and to Oceania, just as bad for them. SKY TV pulls the strings in the Rugby World these days, not Rugby Unions. Time for a rethink of the Pacific Basin setup??

Posted in: Sony's new $500 PlayStation 5 will launch Nov 12 See in context

Ps4 has remote play which you can play your Ps4 games on Ipad, Iphone or PC with PS4 controller connectivity via blue tooth. Because of the Switch's hardware limitations, games are almost always going to be Med res/animated Marioesque adventures with the odd EA/2k title thrown in the pot..Next Gen is all about graphics and realism geared towards 3rd person shooters/Madden IMO and the SSD will improve load times. Digital rights has always been tricky especially with multiple online accounts for any console and if you've got a stack of PS4 discs in your drawer then you better head to GEO and hock em off asap as they wont be transferable to PS5 Digital version

Nice one Stu! Good luck on Sunday, could be a muddy track....

The Rugby World Cup was the ducks nuts, luckily Kyushu had a fair amount of decent games on show. Fukuoka was buzzing and Oita was awash with Supporters. Miyazaki/ Fukuoka to Oita is a handy distance so I’m sure Mr Ballantyne would have seen the Wallabies as I did the All Blacks, just being at the Big Eye was priceless....

Fast forward 6months and it’s all gone south, gotta feel for the Sunwolves even though that decision to drop them was an age ago, fans were attending their last season en masse, also the ARFU In dire straights, USA rugby filed for bankruptcy...hope it works out for these Organizations..But, a lot of codes are hurting not just Rugby

At least for rugby fans Super Rugby Aoteraroa is up and running. It may not be your teams but at least it’s something to crack a brew over on Saturday/ Sunday Arvo and get your footy fix...

The same clinics that wouldn’t accept anyone with a barge pole showing even remote covid symptoms. A woman in my city was rejected by 4 clinics because she had lost her taste/ sense of smell...I thought that was why we have clinics and hospitals, to help people out with ailments and get them up and running again...

Question. Is the WHO to be trusted? Who’s the money behind them? Aren’t they funded and supported by big pharma and other groups of interest?

The two Ws. World Health Org and World Bank.. Im sure they share more than just The start of their name...Both parties seem to have a lot of beneficiaries from hard times...
