Given they only had two fit loose heads he had to play against Sale - and both now have to isolate having had contact with the Sale players.

But without that I believe Alex and Emmanuel would have had to play against Gloucester and Alex would have come on for the last ten minutes - or that seems to be the pattern.

I believe that had Northampton beaten Gloucester and Worcester got a bonus point win over Sale then Worcester would have pipped Gloucester to the eighth European place. All ifs, buts and maybes, but that's sport...

As for why Sale have been given extra time - I have no idea, but would suggest the other relevant games should also take place on Wednesday, otherwise Sale gave a huge advantage.

Interestingly, would the prop Gloucester lent Northampton for last week's Euro game been allowed to pla?

Having read some further information it appears Sale were willing to play (presumably they must have been training in groups or no close contact between all) but understandably given the amount of reported cases at the club, both PRL and Worcester were not entirely comfortable about this. 

I suspect PRL have given them an extension to avoid a potential lawsuit from Sale. However I suspect if public health England are uncomfortable with any of this then the game might end up getting cancelled anyway.

So this has happened at Sale.

Yet the RFU are restarting Womens rugby at the weekend, with .. No testing just a temp test and are you feeling ok today?

Can somebody tell me how long they think its going last before at least 50% of the sides are shut down.

Total madness !!!

Whoever has made that call wants to make themselves totally accountable for what happens!!

Allegedly to the end of March.

Could prove messy with it also being a Lions tour in the summer, there's not going to be much wiggle room if the 6N is pushed back even further.

I think it's a real possibility that one or both tournaments will be played behind closed doors, or - dare I say it - pushed back to 2022 Confused

Here's hoping a vaccine is found, and soon.

I assume you are not in favour of public health. Tell that to the families of those who have died. How many need to die so you can watch a game of rugby.

Any chance of you keeping your left wing propaganda off the pages of a rugby forum?

I love the fact that anyone who disagrees with - or even posts an opinion that isn't 100% aligned to - current government policy is spouting 'left-wing propaganda'.  What happened to letting other people have an opinion?

Aaaah, assumptions. What you mean is making things up to suit your own agenda.

Gotcha.

Yea sad assumptions made based on a message.
I miss rugby and when it is safe it will be great to get back to it. Follow non league football too so seen people can return. Sat in my home rugby ground many times and away ones, distancing could be achieved etc. Like they say though it’s the travelling to and from, again stagger travel etc can work, did it myself the other week made sure I left early to try and beat any holiday crowds as well as soak up atmosphere.

Have to have the old faith (as in whatever happens we can’t decide) that whatever is being decided now is based on public health in general and if they feel sporting events could affect that then off course we have to wait. I know someone who can’t play in a band at the moment too and hasn’t since March like rugby due to guidelines. It’s at what point do these things become safe, people said on here rugby wouldn’t return until a vaccine, hope now?

I’ve gone on the basis/ fact probably better word since lockdown in March that rugby is one of the most contactable sports out there so understood why it’s not been played despite it definitely being more than a game of rugby. Catching the bus to my club would feel safe masked etc and don’t feel it would be a mass gathering given the frequency of buses and out of the support base not sure how many use the bus but all places/ clubs different off course. From what I’ve seen of rugby it’s a bubble in itself with respectable people. Has to be for us as our away games take up Saturday anyway if not weekends. Many hours on the coach.

Definitely an interesting one, it’s nice to now be in November, 2021 mentioned originally for no rugby, almost there.

Hills17 - I'm not sure if you have chosen your words unwisely? It's not "respectable" people we need to get out of this mess it's "responsible" people, sadly the two don't always go together. When we sit in front of our TV's watching throngs of people "revelling" and climbing over one another on the eve of lock downs or going into a higher tier, believing they are invincible or that Covid will have a night off, do we honestly believe that there are no "respectable rugby folk" joining in with those activities. Personally I can't think of a sport less suited to resumption than rugby, league and Union, and the sooner we acknowledge that the better and pray for a proper restart in September 2021.
Whilst we have conspiracy theorists, together with the pig ignorant and the "nobody's locking me down" contingent this virus will never be beaten.
The government know that and by their own admission are merely putting measures in place to prevent our marvellous NHS bring overrun.
Wait, do what your government is asking and please be responsible rather than respectable
