I saw an article the other day stating there were moves a foot for Saracens to join an expanded Premiership should the Championship not happen.

This is something that wouldn't surprise me at all.

Oh please...enough of the hysteria. Fit young Rugby players are more likely to die from falling down the stairs than the Wuhan sniffles.  The rest of us can make our own risk assessments. Even if a safe vaccine can be  developed its unlikely to be any more effective than the annual flu shot. 

 It's not just Rugby that won't recover from these Covid restrictions, It's theatre, cinema, live music...like sport, things that make life worth living. If players feel unsafe or have underlying health conditions then of course their feelings should be respected. Otherwise, Rishi Sunak is right.  It's time to stop putting our lives on hold and live without fear.

Non league football is going ahead. I went this afternoon. Crowd around 400. Spoke to a couple of guys that I know are in their late 80's. They told me they feel perfectly safe - more so than in the supermarket. 


Where is the logic in non-league football being allowed to have crowds - most of whom are not seated?

When Premiership Rugby, EPL and EFL football are not allowed any crowd despite most stadia being all-seater?

I can only presume the powers that be have forgotten to ban non-league football crowds.

Well by the same token, where's the logic in allowing BLM and XR protest marches/gatherings?

 If they've forgotten about Non league football, then thank goodness as it's an oasis of a little sanity in an  otherwise cheerless desert.

Many non league Football  clubs won't survive without fans, gate receipts and bar takings. I imagine many Rugby clubs are in the same boat.

I went to the Brighton v Chelsea game at the Amex in August.  Very well organised. People behaving sensibly. No problems whatsoever. Felt perfectly safe.

If it's ok for people to gather ad hoc to protest about whatever is boiling their pish, why can't people be allowed to watch sport sensibly  in a controlled and ordered fashion?

It's not the crowds, it's the safety of players which is holding the restart up.

Close contacts in scrums, mauls etc where "fit young players" could catch the virus, pass it on to others less able to withstand it's effects.

So you're  not actually positing an argument about the safety of the players. Rather you are citing a perception of potential risk to people with whom they may subsequently come into contact?
