So that will be crook - or is that crooked?

Crooked ! Not a word you would normally associate with Rugby Union but looking forward to the future it will be synonymous with Saracens and the players involved. In the future ( not looking back  ) over old news ! I believe Saracens will be back in the Premiership even if they never play a game in the Championship.
Fairplay ! in reality it is a rare occurence in sport and less in ' professional rugby union.

So is it a 14 team Premiership?
Saracens and Ealing ‘promoted’.

But will the 10 Championship clubs bite the bullet. Bring in 6 teams from National 1, two conferences.
Possibly to offer clubs stability no relegation for one or two seasons? 
Guessing a September 2021 restart?


Old enough to know better...just wish I knew what

I am being optimistic. The whole idea of this lockdown is to reduce deaths while the vaccine is rolled out. If the roll out means that deaths drop massively (which it should do when we get through the first couple of priority groups), then I could see life getting back to reasonably normal by March. 

To me, the vaccine being out there makes this a very different lock down than the previous couple as there is a light at the end of the tunnel.

I'd say that's exceedingly optimistic.
Can't see anything happening until September now.

Hope I'm wrong.

Absolutely right. How dare people discuss rugby-related issues on a rugby thread on a rugby forum!
