    Default France covid lockdown

    France to impose a 4 week covid lockdown from Friday. So I think Saints won't be going there to play on 5th November.

    Don't think that has happened yet, though they are expecting an announcement and say it could start tomorrow.

    Aren't professional sports teams exempt? I doubt it will stop PSG participating in the Champions League, so I don't think it will be a problem for Catalans

    PSG play Leipzig away on 4th Nov. They play the return fixture in Paris 3 weeks after that so the restrictions may have lifted by then. Cant see why Saints should take the risk of going to Fance even if they are allowed to (which seems unlikely anyway)

    I don't think any team who are likely to be in the play offs should be going to France, that country has the worst infection and death rate in Europe this week and at the moment it's still rising.

    Could they simply relocate the game to UK? Not sure of the travel restrictions Cats would face if any on account of the lockdown.

    Not directly lockdown but they stopped the Giro d'Italia from looping into France the other day so this would seem to class as a pro sports event being compromised.

    Neither can I but someone mentioned pro sport not being affected when it has already started being affected even before the lockdown starts.

    I’m not sure you can play the victim card given recent disciplinary appeal results.

    You lot play the cheating card enough. With the game being skint just ask Moran if he can just buy the title this year at least it gets 65 years off your back. I wonder if Salford have been encouraged. The game is becoming that bent.

    Cats can travel . Full team corona free. They are allowed to travel. So let’s see how this bent SL get out of this one. They have a game on mon against Salford. The same Salford who say they can’t get a team out tomorrow.

    You mean like getting 4 pts for playing just the 1 game. RFL could have rearranged that game with all games currently subject to change.

    I thought we were the victims in the first place with those bans.

    Catalans need to come over here for a month now into their own bubble. It looks like they will be in whatever the play offs are going to be, and some league games still to play. Makes no sense to keep on travelling back and forth into a lockdown zone for a month, especially when they seem unable to stop their players & staff catching COVID.

    Well we must be even worse at cheating than we are at rugby given our lack of a title. Certain fans obsession that you are subject of a conspiracy comes across as positively Trumpian.
