From a comparison of the Tigers and LCFC fixtures, there are just two home weekend clashes in total - one is Boxing Day/27 December (Sale), and the second is 9 January (Wasps)

I'm actually rather impressed and pleasantly surprised that there aren't (at this stage) planned to be lots of disruptions with Friday night games etc.

LCFC and Tigers are playing Reading and Irish respectively in Reading on the same weekend.... 24 October....

It's great that they can only say each fixture could be a Friday/Saturday or Sunday.

When do these fixtures dates get firmed up?

I agree, the run-in looks tough, but then there are no easy games in this league.

First up Leeds vs Newcastle - dare I say this could be an 8 or 10 pointer!?

Beat me to it. Will be interesting to see how many of those that don't clash are at 3pm on a Saturday.

What is the situation with the replacement EDF matches?

City are also at home on the weekends of the HC Rounds 2 & 3 so there could be at least one more fixture clash. Do we know when ERC or Sky announce the schedules?

As we are the only club starting the season with 2 away fixtures, is any one going to start the speculation that this was at the request of the Tigers, or maybe nothing to do with the new stand being completed and just coincidence.

New fixtures out does make the season start seem a little nearer, yay! :smt026

Hopefully we'll be at home for rounds 1 and 4 then as we play one home and one away fixture for each pair of games.

As we're the top seeds in the pool and if previous years are to go by, we'll be at home on the odd numbered weeks
I hope you're wrong as I'm going to a music festival in Gloucestershire the first HC weekend :smt009

BTW, did anyone register their interest with the club so as to be one of the first to find out the fixtures? I did and I'm still waiting for the info even though it's been posted on here for almost 2 hours!
So did I, and like you, still heard nothing... I even checked my junk email just incase it found its way in there. But the speed that information usually comes out from the club, I would guess a fixture announcement mid October

Just got my fixture list today. Not a brilliant start with an away game at Sale but then there are no easy games in the Guinness Premeirship. Looks like we are playing Northampton mid-week - again. Oh deep joy as I will probably miss that game like I did last season.

We start with two consecutive away games. Is that a result of the new stand I wonder? Our first home game is not until Sept 18/19/20 (against Falcons).

The run in before xmas looks tougher with more away fixtures,then it's the pests home and way.We have 4 home fixtures and the possible relegation candidates ,wuss and falcons away,not too dificult to end with.If we are in the top 6 at the turn of the year,I fancy another final in the offing. :smt027
