Brizzer if the Championship goes down the Premiership route with regular testing there should be no problem-although no visiting spectators. If they go down/are sent down due to lack of money, the non testing/Prem 15s route then the Championship may be a club short.........

If the Championship plays a full season will there still be relegation?
If there is how will the promoted team from the league below be decided since all other league rugby is cancelled?

It sounds like a desperate stretch to try to play a full season to facilitate Sarries going back up as quickly as possible.

What does anyone else have to gain from playing in empty grounds with no income and only a costly loan in return?

Sorry if this has already been answered elsewhere...

Surely, it is for the other Championship teams to block a full season and agree no promotion/relegation if they feel it is all about Sarries.

I don't think there will be many crying up into their beer if Sarries are not back in the Premiership for 21-22 season.

Not sure what Tier other sides were in pre lockdown Bedford were Tier 1 but recent figures not so good will need to wait until Tomorrow. Also not sure of the state of some sides but Bedford only have 11 players at the moment 4 of those are props. 

The infection rates in Nottingham have plummeted, they’re something like fourth or fifth in the 10 highest number of drop in cases. I believe it’s something around 28-29%. They weren’t in Tier 3 last time even when the infection rates were higher- it was talked about but then Boris locked the country down. I’m hoping this is enough for them to go into Tier 2.

I believe the lowest Tier any area will be in after the 2nd December is Tier 2 - but we should know more later as this is being announced today. Positive moves as seen in Nottingham may lead to a further adjustment early in the New Year - so if R rate continues to drop in your area, at a similar rate and isn't adversely affected by Christmas, then you may be in Tier 1 (probably not) by the 16/01/2021 Maire. But Tier 2 would still allow you to attend games at Lady Bay so here is hoping that drop off continues.

The village idjuts in South Yorkshire may well eventually get the message soon - we are seeing a drop off in cases but still have about 2 weeks before that really effects a change on admissions to hospital in the area. Perhaps we might get to Tier 2 for the start of the season but I am not holding my breath - there still seems too many folk around here that think Space, Face, Hands doesn't include them.
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

It is not the message that is the problem but the people that ignore it, or worse use confusion as an excuse to do the right things "Hands -face -Space" what is difficult to understand. It was obvious in the summer when people flocked to the beaches with no space that the second wave was inevitable. If we remain cautious for the next six weeks into the new year we will be ready for the vaccine roll out. What is six months of our lives to the many that have not or will not make it through.

Agree completely. A lot of people are using the supposed lack of clarity as an excuse to break the rules. As you say, the message is pretty clear. However, I think there will be an inevitable spike (even a third wave) following people getting together for Xmas.

Coventry has dropped from 285 to 198 per 100,000 this week, so progress.
Still likely to be tier two at least though, I would think.

Tiers are out - Cov are tier 3, as I think are Donny and Nottingham.

Everyone else except Pirates (tier 1) and Jersey (whatever the States decides) are tier 2

going to be interesting to see what needs to be done to keep away fans from tier 3 areas from travelling, and presumably anyone from tier 2 or 3 areas going to Pirates?

Confirmed that Bedfordshire and Milton Keynes are in Tier2. So Bedford and Ampthill could both have 2000 spectators
