Yeah man I'm mad at Robshaw and all 12 of those dumb MFers, cos other situations will arise in rugby over the next few months and their dumb stunt feeds a negative narrative.

What they've done means if an actually important game is 50/50 to go ahead, the authorities are more biased in their head towards pulling the plug, just like the GAA club situation a few weeks ago.

The 12 are stupid selfish gobshytes.

Young people? F that, the whole reason what happened with the Baabaas is so serious is that you create an onward risk of transmission to people outside the bubble when you violate it. Right now the authorities are trigger happy with what they cancel, why give them ammunition. All the people on this forum want to see is pro games go ahead and people paid good money in the game to take some responsibility.

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'.

This. The people McFadden, Robshaw and the other super-geniuses have shafted are their Fijian team-mates, and by extension the Fijian team, who have a number of fixtures they'll have to play without self-isolating players.

Eh, have they? Have any of them tested positive? I doubt they have to isolate for two weeks because they went for dinner

Yes they're not allowed in camp as the bubble everyone had agreed to (to limit possible contacts) was broken, now they'll have to isolate and not train with their team because of the actions of others putting them at an even bigger disadvantage than before

There are only 6 Fijians in the Babas squad and they don't play in the Nations Cup thing for another 3 weeks. Their period of self isolation will be well over by then. They have a game against Portugal in two weeks, against whom they'll be fine without those 6 players.

Happy to be factually corrected if I've got stuff wrong, but it all boils down to letting everyone around them down badly.

You want to be outraged. It feels good.

Some people are dicks. The consequences of their actions seem utterly oblivious to them. Almost childlike.
