I'll say it again, you can't uncancel a game that had been decided (however stupid the points allocation is).

You also can't rearrange some games because of covid and some not. That's even more unfair. (So wouldn't be surprised if PRL did it).

Use this to create some rest weeks so there's actually some players left to play.

True, but the LNR, which appear to have more intelligence than our own PRL, have rescheduled previously covid cancelled matches for this weekend. Quick action.

There is no space in the Premiership schedule to allow European games to be played later. Therefore we abandon Europe, or bring forward Prem games to create space. Difficult

So, they're going to have to extend the season to accommodate rounds 3 and 4 - there isn't a perfect answer

The T14 have more matches than the GP with 26 weeks plus the play-offs. If they can manage it without resorting to a crude and non average points award, PRL should have been able to do the same or similar.

That a bit of a god send for us. More chance of getting Ben and Willi back, bit of rest, more training time to embed processes.

Halts the momentum of others. No bad thing. Also a chance of 4 more games seeing supporters.
