Re: Bledisloe Cup I: All Blacks vs Wallabies: MATCH THREAD: Sat 7th Aug

I wouldn't be at all surprised to see the Wallabies win this week at Eden Park, I reckon it's on the cards. They played 3 tight games against France. They've been tested under pressure. That coupled with Rennie's superior coaching ability could be enough to tip it their way. They won in NZ last yea...

Have you stretched any thoughts to what actual law would be passed requiring a business to be responsible for transmissible diseases ?

I would fully expect an insurer to push up the premium to cover the risk of a transmission occurring in your premise. There would be risk of legal action against the premise and they would then need to demonstrate they have done everything possible to protect the customer. Without excluding people ...

Swimming has had multiple multiple medalists and Spitz had done 7 golds before. Individual multi-medalists is common occurrence in Swimming. Even the 100m and 200m double is a rare event. 200m and 400m even rarer. Hurdles and spring combos almost never. Also athletics only has two distances which a...
