I, too, think professional rugby is in great peril. If Premier League football is concerned, then rugby, where I would guess footfall is more important, will be in considerable difficulties should crowds be restricted as now.

If we are going to survive, then it may need a different kind of thinking from the club. There are 7,134,434 shares in the club. No fans at the ground means that the club will lose £7,418,031 a season. If we do go bust, then MstQ asset will be the ground minus bank loans, which wont leave him with a lot. Why not issue shares to new investors, yes it will dilute his holding, but at least he will have an asset left. We can then invest and keep the club going.

I was not impressed with last nights experiment. Masks are a pain but if you ignore some people you might as well forget it, for some reason last night some offenders were invisible to stewards while others got immediate attention.

The toilets were a shambles, lack of cleaning materials and by the end of the night just a disgrace.

Hand sanitisation is key but once you walked past a few bottles at the entrance their were no stations anywhere.

In the face of a second wave I wouldn't go back until the club ups it's game.

Remember that some people are exempt from wearing masks and it’s advised not to criticise someone for doing so. Perhaps the stewards were taking that advice.

Give them feed back, they can learn from your experience.

Pretty sure it’s a French government decision, rather than the EU but why not but the boot in anyway.? Who needs facts.
