So apparently the RFU Council have been told that following a plethora of complaints/pleas/requests from every single part of the game outside the Prem that if a restart wasn't forthcoming it would have multiple negative effects. Therefore the  DCMS have been "pushed" to allow the game to go to Stage E at the start of October with Stage F lined up for a November restart.

However due to the fact that about 40% of the country our now in increased infection areas that hope of DCMS Green lighting anything looks like being punted back down field. I still stick with my 2021 prediction before we see some "normal" rugby and even then I'm not sure when in 2021!

The RFU council are correct in pushing on.
These young men need to play or our game will be lost.

The majority of contributors on this site will be like me, past playing and only wishing we could don the boots once again. It is up to us to look after ourselves whilst watching our beautiful game.

Yes the players will have to be careful with interaction with their families but that is a small price to pay to keep the game alive.

You quite clearly have no understanding of what efforts go in to making sure a game goes ahead each weekend do you?

Yes very much so, but I have a different opinion re the risk.

You may not agree with me, which is your right to disagree, but I really do wonder where you get your formed opinion of my knowledge?
