So final 6Ns games around 1 November. Then 4 x International weekends from 14 Nov to 5 Dec.

I wonder how many of those will overlap with GP weekends?

Imagine if we're missing Spencer, JJ, Watson, Coka, Underhill, Stuart, Dunn, Faletau.

To be fair, the finalisation of the Premiership will be pretty Mickey Mouse. We all know who is relegated so the games and outcomes will be relatively pointless other than for Exeter, Bristol, Sale and Saints?
Euro qualifications............meh.
Who'll be travelling to watch those events during the times of Covid-Mania in 2021?

So the last game of this tournament is the 5th December with the new premiership season starting on 21st November. What’s the betting we get “drawn” against Bristol again on week one when we have depleted squad.

In the words of Brody alias Roy Scheider "we're gonna need a bigger team. "

Or just a better balanced squad?

So we flog the players through the rest of the 19/20 season, with midweek games, and then run pretty much straight into the next season - with the internationals spanning both. Oh, and of course there's a Lions tour at the end of the 20/21 season.
No chance of anyone being at all knackered, is there?

The finances of the international unions is clearly more important than player health.

Will they get that much money if they are paying all the players etc but not getting the fans at the grounds? Perhaps they think that they will get the fans at the grounds?

Government minister suggesting some fans will be allowed back in October according to BBC.

Don’t believe there’s much credibility for this with the second wave of covid19 starting in Europe, which let’s face it was obviously going to happen.

Faletau and Coka are banned from international games until they play 10 matches for bath

The game - overall - was a financial sh1tshow before Covid. The only thing that's going to generate real game-changing (or at least game-saving) cash is a series of Internationals. That doesn't have to be inimical to player health ... though obviously, when the chips are down, it will be.
