Looking at it (all be it in a mobile) it seems better laid out and easier to find fixtures etc...

An alternative opinion is that it's slow, clunky and poorly designed, with the crowning idiocy being that the squad names are listed alphabetically by given name.

I agree, very slow, makes it confusing and sends me to sleep.

Not sure if they are currently experiencing problems but it is running like a dog - over a minute to load on both a PC and an iPad.

Iím then greeted with an almost completely black screen with just a Sarries logo. Only when you scroll down do you see any content. And even then there are vast blank gaps between sections of content.

Glad it is not only me experiencing this. I hope they sort it out soon.

Load it up on PC and I'm greeted by this headache inducing mess

Edited to add I'm referring to the graphics, not Steve C. in the picture

I thought it was my PC and Ipad that was playing up, it takes ages to load up, hard to read the print on those pages with a black background and the sky blue background is just a mess.Early days yet though, let's hope it gets sorted.

I am in discussions with two directors of Sportnetwork; they are keen to fix things.

I shall be opening up a Front-page article for users to provide user acceptance testing responses which their technical director has agreed to read.

Please be patient, our objective is to make this site better than its competitors!

Seems a little like shutting the door once the horse has bolted unfortunately. Sale, Worcester, Falcons and Irish have either mostly or fully moved to VFT22 while Glos, Quins and Wasps have their own forums (which have reciprocal hyperlinks to VFT22). Mainly down to complaints about how SN runs over the last few years which saw very little action. Not least the almost criminal lack of a security certification on this site which is ridiculous nowadays. Feel pretty bad for the rotten position that you (TT), DG and anyone else who's worked incredibly hard to administrate our site have been put in. But that's how it seems currently.
