Golden opportunity.

Let's be honest this season has been one of the strangest yet. From the late start and the gaps in between Prem. games to the enforced stop caused by this terrible virus. So, when the vested interests have stopped faffing and @#$%& around ,we could have one of the best opportunities for clubs to give the whole of their squad numbers some quality game experience.
Empty grounds, newly transferred players, shorter turnarounds to get games in and the landscape of marquee and higher paid players likely to be an element in clubs future budgets . This could be an ideal opportunity for clubs like Warriors to put some of the future on display?

We are only 2 wins off 6th place so also an ideal time to try and chase that. But with long term development, it would make sense for players like Kai Owen, Nick David, Noah Heward and Monks to get/continue to get prem experience.

We will have an almost entirely new coaching group.
For me it will be about them getting their ideas across in a remainder of a season with no jeopardy, and hopefully give them a head start for next season.

Yes Asterz, we are 8 points off 6th. Hopeful that the new coaches that we have in will be able to inspire something for the remaining part of the season. Clear to me that the disharmony between Solly and Duncan was not helping the squad.

Player and coach transfers will be completed by the time this season resumes I suspect (if it does at all.)

I think that Solly has said he expects the player contaracts to start on 1 July so I would expect the coaches to as well.

I thought all the press releases said the coaches come at the end of the season - however that is defined!

It's all profoundly confusing!

I would imagine (and it is a speculative imagine) that all contracts will have a calender date as there will be money involved on a pro rata basis on whether the season ends at your last game or - say - the Premiership final.

Calendar dates are unambiguous.

We could have a situation, if we do try and finish off this season, where we have Saracens playing in the prem and in the Championship as I believe their new season is planned to start in September as normal. Hmmm!
