    Saints 4.15pm kick off, we are named first so presumably that's our home game, so still a trip to France if they do restart over there, reduced number of games so as the play offs are reduced we'll have to make up ground quickly. Venue not announced but Leeds playing last gives it away I reckon

    This part doesn't really read correctly.


    "What was meant to be a season with 29 rounds will be reduced to 22. With seven already played, we can look forward to 15 more regular-season rounds, with each team to play each other once."

    I presume it means there will be no "loop fixtures"

    7+15 = 22

    12 team league = 22 games

    I don't know what's so hard to understand about that? Do you think the Latics will let you use their ground?

    They kind of have to I presume. The Sky money will be dependent on that.

    I for one cant wait for it to restart, whether we play 15 more games or just 5. Having some English Rugby League back on TV will be amazing.

    On the flip side, i feel we need to hit the ground running when we get back, were currently 6th which is only 4 points off top but with a game in hand, but also on the same points as Catalan (7th) but they have 2 games on us. I feel 2 losses in the opening 2 games and we could find ourselves quite for down the table with a massive hill to climb.

    Now is time for KW to prove himself.

    Wouldn’t surprise me if the geniuses decided to have the semis and final on the same day...

    Bearing in mind our relatively poor start to the season we will need to hit the ground running, that Catalan fixture looks a lot harder on a neutral ground

    This season will depend on who has managed to keep their players the fittest during the break.

    The fixtures reduced to 22 games is OK with me and they should reduce the play off pro rata to the 3 teams. It would make it a bit more difficult for us having lost 3 games and we need to factor in the neutral venues, with a bit of wishful thinking we could be playing on our own grounds come October.

    Why don’t all teams play each other once, scrap the play offs, top 2 teams after the weekly rounds go straight to Old Trafford?

    We've lost 3 of our opening six game so it maybe better for us having a top four play off

    It was scheduled as a home game originally. So we’ll need to travel away to them at some point.

    Glad to be on the way back. I hope we are on at Sky to try and make the most of this because come August, you’ll have 4-6 weeks without Football that Sky need to fill their slots with. I wouldn’t be against this football style schedule of games most days.

    I wonder if they will schedule any matches in France, depending how things go they maybe able to have fans at the grounds before we do.

    I'm guessing the email you speak of is the one just landed regarding the season ticket survey, rather than about the restart.

    It was announced earlier in the week that crowds of up to 5,000 will be allowed at sports stadia from 11th July
