Yeah, AFAIK, there is no Elite 1 rugby this weekend and the best of that league are playing the Dragons first team in Perpignan.

I don't know how many substitutions will be allowed, but here is Les Dracs' squad:

Tonnes of French talent with plenty of ex-Catalans players lining up against former teammates. Should be a good watch.

Surely most right-minded folk will be watching Batley v Dewsbury?

Who was it that kept banging on about supporting heartlands clubs?

Sport, amongst other things, is a dream-world offering escape from harsh reality and the disturbing prospect of change.

I appreciate Our League have to make a charge for actual league matches but applying a fiver for pre season games is a bit rich. The charge rises to 10 quid on the day 🤪.

These games are basically fitness run outs for the clubs. Yes, it's a novelty attraction to see sides at Championship level back on the field after so long but I do feel Our League are missing a trick here. Plenty of interested punters would tune in for a free friendly just to experience the viewing package being offered. If they like what's on offer (production and quality wise) there's a good chance they'd be back with their cash for the start of the official season.

Even a number of the big hitter Football clubs pump out free to view pre season friendlies for the very same reason, I know Aston Villa TV had remarkably high take up numbers by trialling this method in the past.
