The dates are
1 . 10 th October
2.  28 th November
3.  6  th February

Going to be a whole new ball game in survival for some clubs if no rugby till next year or even November.
There is no way “most clubs”can contemplate hiring out their facilities for private parties and comply with social distancing etc.
With no income from rugby and most of their overheads back in place when they reopen going to be a struggle
to survive.
RFU should have with waited until now to offer grants and loans to clubs not the first 3 months when they did.
Most clubs had sufficient funds to survive the first 3 months It’s when reality bites and there is no income from rugby or room hire that clubs will struggle.
No doubt there is little or nothing left in that pot now.

Y1 Pundits league winner 2010/11 seems a long time ago

But surely offering the same money now or 3 months ago still amounts to offering the same money so it is irrelevant when it actually was offered? Unless you have an account with Banco Evaporato?

I’ll go September then. With a double on there not being any ‘second wave’.

As the earliest would be October 10th, I’ll revise the September wager !
