More great news coming out from DMP today, club stalwart prop Ralph Appleby resigns for next season for 13th year with the club - amazing that Ralph who has played more than 300 games for the club since 2008, and almost 100 in the first 15. 

Not bad for a lad who I am told is still only 30ish." rel="nofollow -

Great to see the club retaining the core of the squad

Another re-signing with Fullback Paul Jarvis signing on for another year in a player coach role -" rel="nofollow -

Hopefully some other clubs may start to announce some business soon I’m starting to feel a little lonely on this thread 😂

Personally I'm just glad we all seem to still have clubs (unless anyone knows different) - players I'll welcome when they turn up!

keep the faith

Given Nat 1 and Nat 2 structure is staying the same for 21/22, clubs taking part in those leagues are known and there is no relegation from the Championship would it not be a good idea for the fixtures to come out soon so that clubs can plan pre season /pre-season friendlies plus any other potential fund raising activities they might wish to run. Not sure the reason for having to wait? Halliford- any thoughts as the man in charge is at your club?

I believe that John Inverdale mooted that we will get a fixture list in May for the N1/N2 leagues for 2021/22. 

I think they are waiting to see that the roadmap is progressing as we can't even have scrum/maul training until at least Stage 3 of the Government roadmap, with full contact matches no less than two weeks after so no non-adapted law games could take place until 31st May at the earliest anyway.

I'd rather wait a month and know we have a more settled schedule than get a less settled schedule early. Hopefully we could get some friendlies going late July/early August so we can then stay after the game in the clubhouse to watch the Lions Tests.

I have seen a schedule that says we will have fixtures by the end of April. Clubs’ special requests went to the NCA in March so there shouldn’t be too much delay. I’m not aware of any Level 3/4 Clubs folding yet.
