So no bar income, if no matches. Owing to the unusual season which has just ended I think some clubs will have to change their attitude towards Cup Competitions.
This has been going on for years. Some clubs try honour the fixtures but there are more than a few who give walkovers at the last minute. When that happens you're better off not having the fixture in the first place due to losses on beer/food etc

Interesting feedback. As next season starts on 3rd September with 5 Breaks until 18th March when the League Season ends, what will clubs do for the next 5 weeks if they don’t enter the National Cup Competition?
Just a thought.
Perhaps ask them what they did this season?
Rugby League would be near the top of the list.

Lancs had covid just like everyone else, but still managed to get their cup games in.
Try playing the 1st round week one (not August bank holiday), only half the games to play on next non league week.
I'd say the main problem is the walkovers. Most occurred because clubs didn't want to play the fixtures with just the odd one moved due to covid.
EG. We would have got through to the Semi Final without playing a game in the trophy.
There were 14 byes across the 3 comps + 11 walkovers.
You also had teams getting a bye in the 1st round then giving a walkover in the next round when they saw who their opponenets were.
No competition can survive with figures like that.

And yet the Blazers with their invented survey results say cup rugby is what clubs want.

Our experience of cup rugby over the last few years is that players like the concept of cup rugby and a pathway to a national final at Twickenham, but in then when cup matches come around we are beleaguered with unavailability. Surveys might well say cup rugby is what everyone wants, reality will say different.
