    Does anyone know if we will get to play the Penrith Pathers in 2022?

    doesn't sound promising. If Penrith doesn't want to come here then I'd love for Saints to go over and give it a crack. All depends on how covid rates in Australia are, if we need to quarantine then quarantine when we come back it just isn't doable.

    It depends on restrictions in Australia. As it stands its not possible for us to fly in and out for the game without a lengthy quarantine and likewise for Penrith to come over here and return without quarantining when they get back to Oz. Be a shame for us to miss out on a WCC game 2 years running though.
    Forwards win games. The backs decide by how much.

    Let it be for a while, Australia is still getting high peaks in Covid in some states. They thought they were safe without the injections but how wrong were they?

    I'm a bit meh about it at the moment, its going to be a tough season next year with a lot of games. Under Woolf we are slow starters and build up throughout the season, not sure if we could perform at our best in a WCC.

    And it knackers that timetable for building performances as the season progresses, as other coaches have stated previously.
    I f*cking hate wi*an.

    Would love to play it over here. I’m not really that bothered about the opening weeks of the season as we’re playing 27 rounds and we’ll finish in the top four anyway.

    It would be a great game to have.

    Australia seem to lock down an entire state any time some gets a sniffle so playing it there would be risky.

    Hopefully some intelligent conversations can happen and the game can go ahead in some form.
    I could agree with you but then we would both be wrong.
