Re: Coronavirus Thread. Virus v humans

italy saying infected cases are probably 10 times higher than the official figure of 64k. Even 640k infected out of 60m leaves a lot of the population with no immunity, and look at the amount of damage that 640k has caused.

Re: Saracens punished -35 points and £5m

While it's always been fairly obvious that Sarries have been the worst offenders at this you'd think others such as Bath might well be in the firing line at some point as well.
