May 17th pegged by PM as date when crowds can go back to sporting events, at the earliest.

Sadly, Cornish Pirates could be the only club unable to host supporters if May 17th goes ahead.
Old enough to know better...just wish I knew what

Pirates are due to visit Jersey the last round. Weather should be brilliant for a BBQ in St Ouen.
Dont kick it. Pick it up and GO FORWARD.

Ah a BBQ in St Ouen what a great weekend that was you hosted.
How are you doing, hope all well.

Don't forget to let me know when you are able to get Hartpury again, will pencil it in and collect you again from the station. Be great to meet up for a drink or two Beer

With no crowds allowed (certainly for the first few rounds) why are all games not 2pm kick offs on Saturdays.?- there isn't even any tv coverage to my knowledge

So that all games can be live streamed separately, apparently.

I did wonder why anyone would incur the extra cost of floodlights without any crowds?

TV coverage would be good - hopefully it will be to the benefit of the Championship sides not the RFU?

I understand that this is the reason that there isn't a general TV deal - the sides want to keep their own revenue. Apparently there wasn't a good revenue split with the Premier Sports offer.

The RFU previously justified keeping the TV money because they paid each Championship club £500k - as this is no longer the case the Championship Clubs should negotiate directly with potential broadcasters.

With Saracens in the league they have a strong hand - just hope they show at least 2 games each round or we will get Saracens every week.
