Just a game that, even if you ignore the health implications and their influence as role models on (not just young) people when it comes to how they view Covid, the potential for transmission of Covid outside the 'young people' bubble, it also means that the rest of their teammates now have to quarantine for 9 -14 days to be considered for rugby purposes. The Fijians now may be unable to join their country squad ahead of upcoming international games.
They also cost their own union a seven figure sum, it seems, because they don't get the tv revenue and have to pay back Sky. Given the **** situation most unions find themselves in at this time, that's even more important.
And let's not forget, not only did they breach the bubble once, the did it twice! And this is after the coffee shop incident earlier in the year. They clearly don't given a f*ck.
So yeah, 'just a game'.
