Saracens are in Hertfordshire which has been placed in Tier 3.
Shush the Stadium has not started.Lots going on behind the scenes. Cornwall Council has started the 47.5 million pound road infrastructure around Langarth, Truro which will benefit the Stadium.

Actually Saracens are in Barnet, which is London but the principle is still correct with regard to Tier 3.

Sorry. Robb your correct. Barnet was in Hertfordshire until 1965 then became a Borough of London.

Can see many tier 3 here until March.

We can’t force vaccines on anyone, but i read to push the virus back could need 80%-90% uptake. Judging by comments at work 60% might be the uptake. 

Will we be in this mess in September?
Old enough to know better...just wish I knew what

Hopefully not but probably yes! The vaccine(s) are not the answer to everything and it will be spring at the earliest before we get down to the younger age group (ie players!) The main issue, and problem, for team sports is that even though individuals may be vaccinated against the virus it does not prevent them spreading it.
As I have said on various threads on RM I feel the best we can hope for and definitely the safest is to aim to resume with a full programme at all levels in September - OK this might screw Saracens but that might be a more meaningful and deserving punishment for cheating

I don't know where you're coming from with this BS, George Floyd was no angel but the whole looney left have decided to put him on a pedestal, pathetic.

Can't you remember BLM attacking the Police, attacking police horses, desecrating monuments and attacking white people?

No, because most of those things didn't happen except between your ears. I hold these truths to be self evident that all men were created equal.

I'm with you Shush! On a similar note I see that having complained that Covid too was rac*ist there is a majority of our ABCJFTDHLRTB+ blackberry community who are likely to refuse the vaccine (as reported on BBC news today) which is very helpful! What chance have you got when you get someone on TV proclaiming, and yes this is a verbatim quote, "I ain't catching no diseases 'cos God is looking after me"

Quite agree - totally fed up with the Wendy-ball teams kneeling before every game - it was originally just for the end of last season, but appears to have become a tradition like the pantomime season.

Really, must have dreamt all those demonstrations without social distancing and masks - many of which ended in wanton vandalism and occasionally violence -pictures as supplied by the BBC.

You just can't win - BAME groups complain that Covid affects them more than white people, now you hear that less than 60% BAME people are likely have the vaccination whilst almost 80% of whites will.

Not helping themselves are they?

How on earth do you know what the younger members of your club believe in?

Through dialogue and effective communication. By asking them to set the agenda and internal club values. By measuring the response we get to social media posts which promote equality and agenda messages. That’s how. 

In other words you've been spying on your own kids facebook pages, let's hope you haven't been reading other kid's social media as you'll get a reputation!

So you can boooo your team off the pitch, you can boooo the opposite teams individual players, you can booooo a refs bad decision, heck you can boooo anything, but boooo a load of numpties taking the knee and you’re a cloudberry. Thank God panto’ been cancelled.

The rugby Premiership haven't taken the knee nor any international match that I saw.  Don't think it is needed, if we are doing that should we have a clap for the NHS, a minutes silence for all people who have died in wars, etc. etc..

Before you know it we will have an hour of gestures before we start any match...
