I wonder why the RFU/NCA can't or won't publish the 2021-22 fixture lists early? Surely clubs trying to earn revenues need this information so they can look to generate as much revenue from functions. For instance, we can't book weddings on Saturdays from September to April until we have the home match dates. This is one season when there's no obvious reason to wait until late May as is usually the case.

I agree with Allan, Levels below also.
In case you hadn't noticed Scrumtime, this season has been cancelled. 
What if the Hokey Kokey really IS what it's all about?

Whilst possible maybe reluctant to issue fixtures early when there is still the possibility of some "casualties" (Hope not obviously!)

Why not just use this seasons fixtures and change the dates. Fixtures were issued for the first fifteen games I believe.

The NCA has already sent its usual request to Clubs for dates which affect fixture planning. That is 2 months earlier than normal.

The RFU have to come up with the Structured Season first and I wouldn't hold your breathe. My guess is end of May at the earliest but I have no idea why.

When John Inverdale was interviewed on the NCA Youtube channel, he suggested that fixtures might be published at the end of April!
