Why would the players prefer Saturday to Sunday? Is it just so they can go out on the lash after the game?
The players are part time semi pro's Col,
Most hold down full time 4o hour a week jobs, add to that training and another days work on match day and it it works out at a lot of hours each week. It's not like being a soccer player, train in the morning, golf in the afternoon, play on Saturday with plenty of time for families and children.
Most of the Hornets players just want a day that they can spend with their families. Sundays is that day.
Also some have jobs that a physically demanding, construction work and the like, playing on a Saturday will give them an extra day to recover from a game and when you've been tackled by three 16 stone men twenty time in a game you ache a bit the day after.
As a club we can't offer the best money but maybe we can offer better terms to attract better players or retain the ones we have.
There's a risk to attendances, some fans may not be able to go to games on a Sunday, but then again there may be some may find it easier.
It's worth looking at even if it never happens. Forward thinking
