Re: Coronavirus Thread. Virus v humans

No vaccination is entirely risk free. I know that, but in event that there are other options (which there are), then you pick the less risky surely? There are greater risk from taking aspirin, let alone other drugs. The risk of having a reactio to the vaccine is negligible in all cases. You aren't ...

Re: Coronavirus Thread. Virus v humans

No vaccination is entirely risk free. I know that, but in event that there are other options (which there are), then you pick the less risky surely? The risk has a decimal point, then lots of zeros. You want to deny the vaccination to others based on 37 out of 17,000,000. No offence, but you're fec...

Well yeah, one is less risk than the other. Not saying I wouldnt take it myself (AZ), but given the option I know which one I would choose. It's only natural.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

AJ is just saying that wingers are used differently in Ireland I think. New Zealand have often carried poor defenders on the wing as their main purpose is to get them the ball in space to do damage.

Of course, JL would be nowhere near the NZ team so it's a moot point I suppose.

Re: The Official Irish Rugby Thread

I think that is what is good about it though is that there is very little point in kicking as long as there are defenders deep in the back field. Hence why you dont see it expolited too often. And as long as there are more players in the back field, then there is more space in the action areas. Even...
