Re: Winless Waratahs post $3 million profit

I hate to defend the tahs, but wasn't this the result of them anticipating the covid hit to be much worse than in actually was? They cut wages and programs expecting it to be 1929 bad. So now, they can recruit up to be competitive again, as well as throwing some money at development. Agreed it's not...

Re: Olympic Sport Doping thread

I know a few Pro Triathletes as the pool of athletes is fairly small and I would be very surprised if those specific individuals were on anything. I'm not saying in any way that triathlon is clean but there is very little money or exposure in the sport to make it worth the risk. My suspicion would ...
