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 suspect it would have been if 7 qualified for Europe, but as it is 8 there is nothing on the game.

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!!

Six Nations: 2021 tournament could be delayed to allow crowds

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.
