Celeste Harle: "Absolutely ridiculous. Government banging on about safe distance and stay safe! Yet contact sport is ok? Why would they pass that through as essential, yes people have missed Sport, but i can think of many other things that could have been passed during this time."

Nicholas Jones: "That's right. They need to finish what they can before next season."

Trish Wigley: "Certainly have not missed it!"

Andrew Milnthorpe: "About time! They should just get on with it!"

David Parkin: "Far too soon."

Frank Blasi: "A great idea. With it on TV, I can sleep better during the day!"
