Saturday August 15th cannot come soon enough - even if the strange end to season 2019-20 will have all the feelings of a phoney war.

CORONAVIRUS ADVICE AND SUPPORT
The RFU has developed a range of resources and information to help support clubs affected by the Coronavirus.
CLUB, COUNTRY OR BOTH?
The Coronavirus pandemic has highlighted how precarious rugby’s financial model is in Tier One and Tier Two nations alike. This at a time when World Rugby aims to rationalise a global playing calendar to maximise the game’s commercial potential and at the same time reduce the tension between competitions at national, provincial and local level. The project brings multiple interests into conflict, creating a perfect storm. Something’s got to give, but what? And what would the man or woman on the Rec terrace prefer?
HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE CLUB # 2 Will Hooley
American International Will Hooley joins Saracens from Bedford Blues. Sarries have had a longish tradition of signing American players – Titi, Hayden Smith & Chris Wyles to name just 3 – so Will will join quite a select band. Will was born in November 1993 In Cambridge (UK that is not USA) attending St John’s College School & The Leys and representing Cambridge RUFC
Full Squad from 01/06/2020 until the end of 2020/2021 season
Please see below for the ful squad for the remainder of the 2019/2020 season and the entire 2020/2021 season
Life is never simple at Kingsholm. The Cherry and Whites take a bold move - and doubtless a cost-effective one - with the appointment of 37 year old George Skivington as head coach and then his previous employers promptly say " you can't do that."
HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE CLUB # 1 Harry Sloan
Harry Sloan joins the club from Ealing Trail-finders and before that Quins. Born in 1994 in the Kent village of Pembury, Harry attended Skinners School. He started playing rugby at Cranbrook Rugby Club at the age of 6, remaining there until he caught the eye of Quins’ Academy Coach Howard Graham when he was 15. In his early days he played almost anywhere on the pitch from fly-half to back-row to right wing. At Quins he settled down in the centres where he has remained.
All Teams Falcons - Well Who Knew?
In one of my bored moments I Googled Falcons Rugby and up popped a variety of Falcons and I thought I would share with you!
Bolt For the Blues
These are difficult times and survival in every sense is paramount. That can be the only reason that Blues have announced a tie-up with Saints which effectively ends any hopes we have of a proud independent club reaching the Premiership and competing on a level playing field with the big boys.
