I think all sport should be cancelled until this danger passes.

Anzac Day services across the country cancelled in wake of coronavirus spread

Anzac Day services across the country cancelled in wake of coronavirus spread

Anzac Day services join growing list of cancelled events due to coronavirus

RSL NSW has made the “difficult” decision to cancel “all public ANZAC Day commemoration services”.

This is good news. Both of my grandfathers were/are diggers, & my dad was in the national service. I definitely feel protecting public health by cancelling the Anzac Day service is in fact the best way to honour our diggers & respect their sacrifices, past and present.
