Do any clubs have pre-season plans?

Although the preparatory work had to take place (mostly) behind the scenes, Cov & Jersey have been looking to stage a game this weekend - and it's on: KO at the Butts Park Arena is at 2pm tomorrow (Sat). And it's possible to watch online, albeit the attraction of watching England box-kick to the Italians may be the preferred option for some, esp as £9.99 cheaper. Details below:

I realise that there are two rounds of the Trailfinders Cup to go & a few others already lined up:
  • Sarries v Donny tomorrow 4.15
  • Cov v Sarries, Sat 20/2 3pm
  • Eal v Donny, Sat 20/2 3pm
  • Sarries v Cov, Fri 26/2 6pm
Getting fixtures against Premiership opposition is challenging, so the options appear limited...

Not impressed with the view to the railway/Broomfield Park corner (keep missing the action there) and the cameraman needs to move a bit quicker at times, but early days.
Good to see a bit of rugby, whatever.

Cov 36-33 Jersey.
Good open game which could've easily gone the other way.

Yes it was a good match, plenty of good tries and I think Cov just deserved it after scoring 6 of the 11 tries. Both clubs' Twitter accts made it 34-33 at FT

The stream was a good picture with replays, team-sheets and decent commentary. Shame the scoreboard lost track in 2nd half, but that's what pre-season is for to work these things out.

I fully agree with this and full credit for the way both teams and the match officials approached the game. The streaming quality was easily the best I've experienced with pin sharp picture and the commentators did their best but probably need someone from the visitors in there. I would have loved to have been on the touchline crunching the advertising boards but money well spent in my book. Thanks to Cov for hosting it all and safe flight back tonight lads.

I understand that there was a Jersey guy nearby, who did help out with some of the player questions, but there were so many changes it must have been impossible to keep up!

Yes, I was somewhat confused when Cov's score went up by a conversion's worth when I could have sworn the flags stayed down.
Maybe it was shown wrongly on the screen.
It'll come out in the wash, not that the scoreline matters much at all.

No announcement of any pre season matches from Nottingham.
Looks like we will go straight into the first league match with Ealing.

Well rested I guess...

Is this a player welfare issue? If the Nottingham pack have had no competitive scrums/mauls/full on tackles before they play Ealing should this be a concern? Full time v part time has happened for some time in the Championship but never with the part timers having had no pre season friendlies.

If it were normal times Nottingham would have had some training sessions with Leicester, whether they can do this at the moment who knows!
