They all seem to think that there will be rugby matches this side of Christmas ! . I hope that is correct.




Ealing Trailfinders have recently played Newcastle Falcons home and away and Bristol A team yesterdaywith the return leg at Ealing Trailfinders next week with a limited crowd ( All Ealing Trailfinders home crowds are limited ! ).

There are finally real signs that we may be able to return to some sort of norm. The Covid Vaccine seems to work which was not always a given. The new year will hopefully see us all turn the corner. 


Ambition should be made of sterner stuff.

I hope you are correct, however currently only a couple of the championship sides are at this level - a number of the rest have furloughed players or cannot muster a match squad.

I know things can move quickly, but with the vast majority of the country in tier 2 or 3 I fear we may still be a minimum of a couple of months before a re-start.

South and West Yorkshire moving quite quickly towards Tier 2 - potentially at the next review so some positive (ish) news there. And similarly this is happening elsewhere.

NHS immunisation program to start in the coming days - positive news there, yes it will take months to get a large enough spread but let us take the positive there

Championship Rugby starting mid-January looks promising - positive news there.

Yes, lots to still sort out but we can start to feel slightly more cup half full than half empty.  
Onward and Upwards C'mon Donny!

Well said. 2021 will be much better (not saying much I guess) but hopefully by year end things will be back to normal.
