It's a shame Super Rugby will be either cancelled or played in empty stadiums next week because the ACT Brumbies are on the verge of shattering club records.
The on-field show will go on for at least 80 more minutes on Sunday when the Brumbies host arch rivals the NSW Waratahs at Canberra Stadium.
It will be the last game in front of a crowd for any Australia code for the foreseeable future and potentially the last of the season if Super Rugby is forced to shut down the competition because of coronavirus.
But the Brumbies are lighting up Super Rugby, scoring more tries in the first five games of this season than they have in any year since their last title in 2004.
They have crossed the line 24 times so far this year, silencing critics who believe they can only score from mauls or those who say they play a dour style.
On top of that, they are also on the cusp of equaling their best start to a season in 16 years and can stamp themselves as title contenders if they topple the Waratahs.
So while the world is talking about the spread of coronavirus, the Brumbies are intent on making the most of what could be the final show.
"We've made a few tweaks to our game, but a lot of it is confidence," said attack coach Peter Hewat.

"I suppose guys are playing with freedom and understanding our system. If you don't have to think while you're out there, it just comes naturally. It gives confidence to just play rugby.
"We've worked hard on that unstructured part of our game. We know we pride ourselves on [set piece], but we've made big improvements on unstructured play."
The Brumbies are scoring tries 63 per cent of the time after making a linebreak and have moved away from having the maul as their only weapon.
The Waratahs pose a different threat as they fight to get away from the bottom of the ladder.
Scott Sio has been ruled out of the Brumbies' side, but Robbie Abel and Tom Robertson are missing from the Waratahs squad.
James Slipper comes into the Brumbies' starting XV, while Wallabies tighthead prop Allan Alaalatoa will go head to head with NSW young buck Angus Bell.
"Our scrum hasn't been at its best this year and everyone can see that," said defence coach Laurie Fisher.
"We've had another week of introspection and we've worked hard, so hopefully we take a step forward.
"Allan is the incumbent Test tighthead and Angus Bell looks like he has a huge future, so every contest out there will be worthwhile watching."
The Brumbies have won their past three games against the Waratahs and are unbeaten in the past seven Australian conference derbies.
"As a team we just need to build from week to week. But we've still got edges to smooth over and improvements to make," Fisher said.
"It really is just an internal focus about trying to be better each week and to play to our potential.
"If you let the [Waratahs] play, they can play. They've got the ability to shift the ball side to side, they've got pace and size on the edges ... if you allow the space and time, they're a hugely dangerous side.
"We need our set piece to fire, our defence to be good and off the back of that we'll create attacking opportunities."
