Re: Aussie posters ... watching Super Rugby / TRC (who is the broadcaster)

All OLED panels (and smart TV panels) are made in the same place IIRC. We just bought a new TV. Our Sony Bravia (2007 model) died and we couldn't justify a ridiculous TV.

A new Samsung TV. In that case you can just download the Stan app to the TV and skip the PS4. Our Samsung used to be smart. Not now. So we are on the market for a new smart telly. Maybe Sony? Maybe Samsung (through gritted teeth). An LG OLED panel is the only TV worth getting. Good smart TV stuff, ...

There isn't a resource shortage. Each new human born creates access to more resources, hence the prices for most things are declining.

The required run rate is 3.31 and India are going at 2.98. Start of the day I thought a draw would be a fair result, the way Pant has been batting though, India could steal this. It won't even be close. This is a nice, little partnership but I expect Australia will still win by over 100 runs. Yeah,...
