Our match againt Tolouse has been called off on the 1st may match to be played at a later date concerns over covid and us being a part time club 

I'm assuming you saw this on Love Rugby League who bizarrely have re-run this story today, when it was announced everywhere (including on our website) on March 11th!

  Why couldn't reverse the fixture and play Toulouse at home on 1st May and away 1st August?.Or is that a too simple solution.

Because we will get the gate income in August that we wouldn't if the fixture was reversed?

What when people are at the coast on a weekend away or on Holliday,crowds usually drop off in August as a retired Bookie it was one of our quietest months.

So (assuming spectators are allowed come August) you think the gate will be 0?

Well.... I'm not privy to the current a/c at fev, and if we can turn away approx 30k gate receipts plus 15k secondary income by switching the fixture, then we're in much better shape than I thought.

To me it would be crackers switching the fixture.

I agree not one of my brightest ideas and not even started the red wine yet.It just seems a shame we don't have a game for 2 weeks and Toulouse won't play for three weeks.We do need a stiff test to try to play ourselves into some better form.

I think you will get better  the  more games you play together irrespective of the opposition but having said that dropping the ball or forward passes is nowt do do with form it's just down to sloppiness and on their report card it would say Can do better 🤣

I might be wrong , but did London forfeit the 2 points to toulouse by refusing to go play. I'm not suggesting that fev should.

No. As I understand it, the RFL awarded the game to Toulouse as they refused to travel.

Fev haven't refused to travel. The match was postponed by the RFL and may be played later in the season if the fixture can be accommodated

Thanks for that Rob, I was unsure what had happened. I wonder if toulouse will pick any more points up with teams refusing to travel.

It only applies to London They are full time. Semi professional clubs do not travel until it is safe to do.

So Toulouse have 100% win ratio so they might as well not play another game and finish top of the league and get promoted. I think that they actually need to play a minimum number of games but for me it's points that determine who is the best team not percentages.

I think that they actually need to play a minimum number of games THAT'S true  to get promoted you have to qualify for the playoffs and clubs will be required to have played 70% of their league fixtures (16 out of 22 in the Betfred Championship) to qualify for the play-offs. So if TO don't play another game they won't be in them

finish top of the league and get promoted NOT really  to get promoted you have to get to  the grand final even if  you finish 5th like we did 2019  and then WIN it
