Jesus Christ MM. I'm talking about an article on the 12th January when our case average was 6000 (but our positive test average was below 5k) and NPHET were talking about it leveling at that figure.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Correct me if I'm wrong but QB hits are generally when they're static? Or certainly not running at pace? So a lot of them are heavy hits but because there's give and because they're lighter, they're less jarring? Obviously there's the massive hits from both sides which counter that point but are the...

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

Sexton is too old. Lots of players, even outhalves, continue playing past 33 and longer. He’s too old for Ireland to rely on him for the 2023 RWC, but he isn’t too old to play test rugby. He's 36 this year. He's definitely an outlier. But when you think about it, we've had only 3 decent FHs in over...

The Sexton problem is bigger than just the 10 jersey. If everybody sees a player playing badly/not resilient enough any more to last until at least half time, it kills squad morale and and creates a culture of mediocrity.

If they were allowing for 5 doses and 1100 vaccines to be administered, that's 220 vials so still 100 vaccines wasted if Pfizer are saying 6/vial.

Is that really the case with admin staff? Per the Coombe, they were due 1,100 vaccines and had 16 leftover.
Nope.

120 leftover initially.

But they were only expecting 5 doses per vial. That's a lot of wastage allowed for.
