    Default Crowds back from May - hopefully

    So from the 17th Mayl to the 21st June capacity at 4000 or so, at least it's a start, so let's hope the big matches are held back until after that date

    That's not bad, at least season ticket holders will get potentially every other game

    Think all SL will be 4000, it's 4000 or half capacity - whichever is lower

    Is that so? I've been out and about all afternoon so not heard anything from the bumbling bog brush head, just stuck it on now.

    I'm genuinely happy for the country although slightly ••••ed off I won't be here although nowhere near as upset I'll be if they're closed when I get back home

    Seriously though, it's good news and it's just occurred to me, maybe it would be worth letting the season get underway and keep our ideas as a work in progress, I'm not saying for one minute it's not a noble and worthwhile cause, just that there's bigger problems in the world currently.

    Salford would love to get crowds of 4000.

    Roughly about seven rounds all being well then that there’s no fans. 3/4 home games without. I’d take that.

    Yes, half capacity or 4000 whichever is the most.

    I think we'll have quite a lot of big games after May

    This is, of course, dependent upon criteria being met. If there are more virus mutations or hospital cases don't drop enough, then it will not happen. Given the amount of people refusing vaccines in certain circles, the former especially is entirely possible.

    What I'll say is, if we can stick to that.. it's a pretty good 'roadmap' on balance.

    I think if you saw restrictions in July and August people would be very annoyed.. I think most people will agree it's about right pace wise

    I agree. We'd all like it to be sooner BUT hopefully this is the last lockdown now so if it means a few weeks more so we can get back to normal then I support that 100% and if it means I can go to games during the summer, go for a few pints after, go for a meal or whatever then I'm in.

    8 weeks of the season with no fans. Then five weeks limited crowds.

    Probably a couple of cup rounds in there too.

    So 3 home games behind closed doors, 2 limited fans. 7 full capacity?

    I think most would have taken that.. most importantly the Challenge Cup should have a crowd of some kind, as should Magic, the Grand Final and most importantly the World Cup

    Season Ticket Holders should pretty much be fine for attending home games, I reckon.

    Full capacity?

    Not sure if I have mis-interpreted the announcement, but it seemed a long way off still, especially when Sir P Vallance has stated that things like 1m distancing may need to be kept in - you can't have full capacity and socially distance by 1m.

    Up to 30% of UK adults expected to refuse the vaccination. This provides a pool of people for the virus to continue thriving, acting as a propagation lab for mutations, those people getting ill and potentially hospitalised themselves (costing the country more money, taking up more NHS resources & beds). And remember that the vaccine isn't a universal silver bullet; a tiny minority who've been vaccinated will still become ill (certain medical conditions, immuno-compromised, etc)

    Seriously, why are these cretins refusing the vaccine?

    In an ideal world, any antivaxxer tw*t would be banned from every public building, pub, restaurant, shop, sports/entertainment venue, etc, banned from leaving the country, and have to wear a bell tied to their head that announces them as an utter dick and possible plague carrier.
    I f*cking hate wi*an. And rugby yawnion. And Tories. And Brexit f*ckwits.

    A liverpool shirt would work just as well.

    Rightly or wrongly I don't think the government will mandate it, I don't think mandatory vaccines are a thing any government wants. I do however think a lot of private businesses will make it a condition of entry, I know a few pubs and employers are looking at it.

    If people don't want it, then literally on their head be it, it'll only effect them, and there should be plenty of people vaccinated to mean the NHS can cope.

    The more worrying aspect is just how easy false information and propaganda has been easy to spread, there are people who generally believed it'll insert a microchip into their body?! It's worrying how easy it is to get enough people believing this rubbish..

    Its worrying times when people appear eager to lap up nonsense such as the microchip hoax, Trump ‘woz robbed,’ and Co-vid was caused by 5G. Its easy to laugh at the small minds (or alternatively the weirdos who think theyve got some sort of ‘inside line’) but its desperate when so many are wantonly smitten by crackpot conspiracy theories.

    Nope. ‘On their own head be it’ only applies with 100% effective vaccines.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Obviously anyone who thinks they're going to be micro chipped is an idiot, I still can't get a straight answer from anyone as to why any government would want to do this.

    However, I can understand legitimate reasons why people may not want the vaccine, for example, what are the side effects 5 or 10 years from now being the main one. Other people don't like the idea of being told what to do, myself included, although I will have it if I need it for work.
