Just for a bit of fun.  My view is a few friendlies only and league season declared null and void

No option for the NCA's proposed cup competition?

It will come down to cost, why would clubs travel around the country and spend more money that they haven’t got for friendlies. It will all depend on getting crowds back as there will still be the matter of paying players & staff. Would friendlies attract spectators as I know even wit a free gate we don’t see hordes of people coming to watch, I assume it would depend on the opposition

It pains me to say it, but nada, zero, zilch, "rien de rien - on ne va jouer rien". 20/21 - the season that never was - but when it was most needed...

At best, a "season" that kicks off when belts are tightest and the weather is at it's worst is regrettably, a busted flush.
Come cheer up, my lads - 'tis to glory we steer!

Cambridge and Shelford are playing a walking / touch game I believe

Clubs can play Ready4Rugby - a version of touch - between each other with up to 10-a-side under the current regulations, subject to local lockdown restrictions.

RFU have advised clubs to revert to A on the road map so no rugby training at all.

Day 1 of Lockdown

Using Google Maps and Pivot Tables in Excel to work out average distance travelled for each club, Groups would be:

* denoted as National 1 Club

South 1

Blackheath*
Canterbury
Guernsey (providing travel to/from LGW permitted)
Old Elthamians*
Tonbridge Juddians*
Worthing

South 2

Barnes
Chinnor *
Esher
Henley
Rams*
Rosslyn Park*

South 3

Barnstaple
Clifton
Dings Crusaders
Plymouth*
Redruth
Taunton*

Central 1

Bishops Stortford*
Bury St Edmunds
Cambridge*
Old Albanians
Rochford
Westcliff

Central 2

Hull FC
Hull Ionians
Leicester Lions
Loughbourough Students
Rotherham
Sheffield Tigers

Central 3

Birmingham Moseley*
Bournville
Cinderford
Hinckley
Luctonians
Stourbridge

North 1

Blaydon
DMP*
Harrogate
Leeds Tykes*
Tynedale
Wharfedale

North 2

Caldy *
Chester
Fylde
Huddersfield
Sale FC *
Sedgley Park

Note, some may miss closer opposition but upon plot analysis of teams involved and mileage, this is the most economical for all as an entirety. Also pending confirmation all teams will take part.

Would add the caveat that RFU fund proper cost to Guernsey not the half baked cost they worked out when going to Jersey previously

Someone is always unhappy especially as the clubs are not evenly distributed across the country.
One thing we will learn is how bad the mismatches are likely to be after reorganization.

I believe that the RFU will not be funding any travel expenses especially to the Islands

Unless the RFU or the States of Guernsey fund the club,  I cannot see them getting many games.
And unlike a normal year, they visiting clubs will not be bringing in tourist money. However, it might be worth the States while keeping them afloat to get that money next year.
