I actually agree that top level rugby can't go on as is, as much as I love watching it, it is shocking brutal, some of the hits are wince inducing and dangerous (the legal ones). Turning pro could be responsible for killing it long term. (But then again I look at hurlers nowadays and think how can this sport keep moving forward when you've now got 2 X 15 sets of players at 6ft 2+ and 16 st and not a dermy to be seen).

And I was castigated for saying the lions was nothing but a jolly.

Bio-secure bubbles away from their friends & family, very limited social interactions, it's winter, daily professional training, they're getting physically pummelled by the World Champions - I've no idea what part of that would constitute a 'Jolly' tbh???

Thought they were bullied in MF tbh, everything stemmed from there. The stick that Scott Brown ended up shipping  ::) exactly the type of player that is required. Soro isn't fit to lace his boots. Terrible Goalie as well, in no man's land for the 2nd goal.

Manager needs time & funds, I wouldn't be even thinking about making a judgement on him for a few months.

AstraZeneca vaccine blood clot risk is no higher than the Pfizer Covid jab, study says

The AstraZeneca vaccine is no more dangerous than the Pfizer alternative and patients are more likely to get blood clots from Covid-19 than the jab, a new study has found.

In an article published in The Lancet this week, scientists said the Oxford-made vaccine had a “similar safety profile” to the Pfizer/BioNTech jab.

The study of more than a million people in Catalonia, Spain, found that incidents of rare blood clots – or thrombosis – happened at a “similar” rate with both vaccines.

And the likelihood of suffering with blood clots was far higher among people who tested positive with Covid-19 than those who had either vaccine.

The study was funded by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) which had warned back in April of a “possible link” between the AstraZeneca shot and clots.

Following the warning, use of the vaccine was restricted around the world.

The findings provided a moment of vindication for the British Government which has been forced repeatedly to defend the UK-made jab.

Politico reported anger among government officials that the EMA’s warning had led to high levels of vaccine hesitancy in developing countries where the jab is desperately needed.

It came as the UK Government celebrated news that one billion doses of the AstraZeneca vaccine have been released to more than 170 countries around the world.

A spokesman for the Prime Minister said it was a “fantastic achievement and we know that the Oxford/AstraZeneca vaccine will and has saved countless lives around the world”.

“And by making it available at cost, we have ensured it can be distributed to as many countries as possible to save as many lives as possible.”

And, as the UK began shipping spare doses to developing nations, Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab said sharing excess jabs could leave the world “adequately vaccinated” by mid-2022.

Five million doses are to be distributed via the World Health Organisation’s Covax scheme and another four million bilaterally.

“We are safer when the rest of the world is safer,” Mr Raab told Sky News during a visit to an AstraZeneca manufacturing site on Thursday.

He added: “The reason we want to do that is we want to get the world adequately vaccinated by the middle of next year rather than, on current trajectory, the end of 2024.”

Rasmus lost the plot??
Seems a bit of a Kevin Keegan moment alrite (an hour long one). Springboks are a different breed tho, might work wonders for them. Tomorrow's game is going to be a brutal physical encounter.

I think even the biggest numbskull Celtic fans (& Celtic are doubly blessed there) know the shitty hand he's been dealt, I think he'll get more patience than normal. Judging by his post match comments he's not going to be a board lackey.- "I obviously haven't done a good enough job of convincing people we need players in"

Andy Garcia / Sofia Coppolla really doesn't work. I can remember Sofia Coppolla getting stick for her performance (& the accusations of nepotism) at the time, again at the time, I didn't think she was too bad, but watching again - she ain't good! Garcia isn't great either in what was an absolute gift of a role. Hammy stuff at times. Were 1 & 2 were original and trend setting, 3 somehow manages to be a cliche. Maybe too much time passed between 2 & 3 and the Genre had really moved on.

Spent the last 3 nights rewatching The Godfather movies. I remember when GF3 come out and thought it was pretty good. Having watched the 3 in quick succession again - GF3 is muck in comparison.

You conspiracy theorists need to go and get a proper hobby for yourselves instead of sitting on your holes all day sharing shite to Facebook. Protesting against wearing a piece of cloth on your face. Would ya ever stop. Most of yas should have been wearing a mask before the pandemic. Face like a stepped-on rissole. Mary doesn't know how to restart her router or login to the Facebook account that she got locked out of last year but she still thinks she has the right to lecture everyone about the dangers of 5G technology. You have lads who failed pass maths quoting R0 numbers and mortality rates. Telling us all to "wake up" and calling everyone "sheep". Grab a hold of yourself now Aidan. It used to take you 10 minutes to read a paragraph out loud in class. I am in my f**king hole listening to you over the experts. If I gave you a multiplication sum to do you'd end up in Wexford A&E with a panic attack.

The bregrudgers don't know what they're missing.

Some savage hits and the intensity will only ramp up for the 2nd test.

Herd might not be that far away - it's GB in effect tho, not NI. 

The major caveat being the 'freedom day' effect isn't known yet.

French President Macron: "I no longer have any intention of sacrificing my life, my time, my freedom and the adolescence of my daughters, as well as their right to study properly, for those who refuse to be vaccinated. This time you are staying at home, not us.”
