The Premiership hardly had a gap between last season and this - so they did not cool down.

Camquin I was referring to the prep time given before the restart after the first lockdown.

Probably the nly way they could "legitimately"keep Saracens and Ealing apart until the final...

Cynic?  Moi??

With the exception of possibly Hartpury, every Championship team has beaten Ealing over the last few seasons. If Ealing and Saracens are to be kept apart in any potential playoff, that’s the way to do it. Alternatively, beat Saracens. Maybe plan A.

Depends what you mean by 'last few seasons' 1ATH - it's just over 5 years since Jersey got the better of Ealing in a league match...
