Re: Other Round 22 Fixtures

How do we know that Sale players have breached the rules? Saints could not field a front row so had to cancel. Tests may be false positives and still expect the game to be cancelled if the number of Sale positives remain. Yeah, but the main point.... Sale can't field a side on Sunday... so why are ...

Northampton did the right thing. Sale emphatically didn't.

Re: Tigers vs Quins - 04 Oct 20 15:00

Castre call off a European quarter final after just 3 tests and have to call off a game 2 weeks later as they're still getting positive tests... Racing call off a domestic game after 9 test positive... Sale have 16 positive tests and don't want to risk missing a domestic semifinal so say they still...

Re: Delay start of 20-21 season (again)?

BT made the final payment of their broadcasting deal for this season in full and early to support the clubs during lockdown to be fair to them. Given that there was no guarantee of more games to broadcast at that point it was a pretty significant vote of confidence from them. I know, my suggestion ...

Re: A question.

On the risk of verging off into politics too much. My proposal Limiting factors as to why people can't get tests seems to be logistics of getting the test itself NOT lab capacity.
