Nice to see the fixtures (starting on Saturday), no sorry, would be nice to see the fixtures on the likes of the BBC website but so far....nothing. At least The Rugby Paper managed it today.

The BBC, don’t get me started on them.

I notice the BBC local radio station thinks sport is football and that’s it.
Even two hours just talking about non league football on a Sunday. But, other sports...

The fixtures for next Saturday's games were on the BBC Sports website yesterday, if not before, but without any Kick Off times
What if the Hokey Kokey really IS what it's all about?

Cheers Hopper, perhaps I expected them to be closer to the top of the list and missed them.

Yes, there we are, tucked under the Prem, and French rugby, and Pro 14, and Aussie rugby, and NZ rugby, and women's rugby.
Still no sign of ko times though...

And which of those do you believe you should be above?

Similar standards apply to football where for some reason Scottish Premiership appears above English Championship.

Just a thought. It's the BBC, so maybe above several overseas competitions?
In footy, yes, the Championship comes below another UK league, but it also comes above the Bundesliga, La Liga, Serie A, Ligue 1, Austrian Bundesliga, Aussie, Dutch, Belgian etc etc. 

Getting back to it, I also note the Beeb also fails to put Donny vs Cov on the correct day, never mind time. It's not like it's new news.

Try this. On the BBC website, go to Sport. Then click on Rugby Union, then Tables. Enter Ampthill. It offers you the English national league one table. Not even the BBC can get their heads round what's going on. Bless.

The RFU site appears to still have last season’s fixtures!

Speak softly, but carry a big stick.

The Good news is that when you go to the BBC Championship table, Ampthill stand head and shoulders above all the rest......for now.

Sportnetwork aren't much better.
Even though they managed to switch Newcastle and Sarries in their listings some time ago, they still have Leeds in the Championship (or Yorkshire Carnegie, according to them).

Looking at the RFU website I see that the Championship league table is showing a 10 point deduction for London Scottish. I thought participation was optional this season or is the deduction for some other misdemeanor?

No idea. The Beeb only shows 11 sides on their table, so it's as inconsistent as ever.

I presume it is to show that London Scottish are still part of the Championship, even though they are not playing this season, but have been deducted 10 points to keep them bottom of the league - otherwise they would be above Richmond and Saracens!
