So far, cases have been fairly consistently doubling every three days.
The Salary cap, the unregistered player...what other cases?

Y'kow, were they are the ones getting the big slice of the cake.
not disagreeing but I cannot see how the french quarter final can go ahead....with the 5,000 ban in france...unless it is behind closed doors.
I am booked for the final, as every year and I am not expecting that to happen.
disregard. clermont are at home. outdoor stadium. Racing Metro is a domed stadium..i thought they were at home. the 5,000 ban is for indoor events,
They've just banned a 20k outdoor music festival in the Alps. I wouldn't be counting on anything at this stage.

French cases diagnosed now beginning to bring the Medical Experts at public appearances to concede that "mitigation" may now be the strategy of choice. If so they have indicated that they will have to consider "restrictions on public gatherings, reduction of public transport, imposition of closure of schools & universities and possibly imposed isolation of vulnerable members of society".

These are fairly radical suggestions but they have also given rise to criticism (on social media) of FFR, for being ignorant of public opinion and concern, and living in a bubble. There is little sympathy for rugby's "elitism" and the media view is to play the Tournament out behind closed doors in front of the cameras.

This game is either going to be postponed or played in an empty Aviva, could actually play it in Donnybrook and force the cheetin gits to not have a shower in Bective. :lol:
Tournament could be cancelled TBH.

Still 4 weeks away. I'd say it will go ahead as planned. No different to games being played this weekend in england with the premiership or the 6 nations matches.

Italy had 62 cases 2 weeks ago; now has 7300+. I realise Italy was probably caught behind the curve - but 4 weeks is a long time.

4 weeks is a very long time and if cases rise dramatically here there is simple no way it will go ahead - just mention risk or fiduciary duty at a meeting and they will all kick to touch and stop the game (Please excuse the pathetic rugby pun).

Going to be a long 4 weeks waiting to see how this pans out..............I wouldn't rule out anything ATM - the whole competition is at risk this year I suspect.

Only time will tell and we can only hope for the best !!

If the match is *significantly* delayed then Saracens’ squad might have partially disintegrated by the time it’s played. A lesser delay would probably suit them just fine though, since they’d likely get Bill Vunipola back

If the remaining matches cannot be played do we get the fifth star for completing the group stage with the most points?

Loads of the internationals have committed their futures to them. I guess the property deals might limit their ability to move (without taking a hit).

Thank goodness you and the rest of the internet isn't in charge of pandemic mitigation! Precisely because it is four weeks away, it is different to the games that were allowed to go ahead this weekend.

I asked the question last week, starting off this discussion, but I'm now 100% convinced that our match will not go-ahead in front of fans (and probably not at all) on the scheduled date.
My only question is if I will be allowed to fly home (from Belgium, where we seem to be about 4/5 days ahead of you on infections). I will fly as long as the official advice is that I can.

I'm glad the hysteria on Irish twitter isn't reflected on this forum though. People seem to be losing their sh!t back home.

ntmack, dupont and chat are out for next weekend if the game goes ahead.
don't get why people are panicking so much about coronavirus...fairly calm here where I am in Switzerland. There are a few cases here and they cancelled their fasnacht thing (A bit like paddys day but goes on for three days), but, nobody is losing their sh!t.

The Swiss don't tend to lose their sh!t - they tend to store it in safety deposit boxes along with everyone's else's sh!t they've held for the last few centuries :wink:

I seem to recall that the Swiss are quite into their sh!t or some of them at least.

So true. Two of the things people never talk about here is War and the gold. funny that.

They have called off the France V Ireland game and the Wales v Scotland game.
Cannot see the french hieneken cup quarter final or marseille going a head now.
Shame.

I hope, by the end of May, things have long calmed down.
But I would imagine the final will have to be postponed simply because the quarterfinals will have been postponed.
I hope we have the option to get a refund for the tickets.

As an adjunct to this, when will Conan be back and when will Leavy be back?

So if this goes ahead (and it's less likely as days go by), who do we reckon benefits more from not having played a game for weeks?

For us, it's great that we've no additional injuries, hopefully Healy will be back and Ringer is in training right?

Granted, we don't have the option really of sending our first team guys to SA, but we do now have a very extended training run in which you'd back our coaches to get right.

For Sarries, they do have the option of playing a full side in the league as a warm-up, which may be an advantage, but hard to know.

Last update was that Conan should be available for the trip to South Africa. There hasn't been any target publicly identified for Leavy.

Would also wonder if the cancellation of the Italy and France matches will alter Leinster's plans for the squad to play in South Africa.

Do you reckon?

Only three cases there currently.

We could of course send the whole team down there and use it as a 'warm weather training camp' for a few weeks.

Only issue is mild jet lag, albeit the Kings game is on the Friday, 8 days before Sarries game, so more than enough recovery time there.

Didn't Munster bring a lot of their guys to SA before the Racing game two years ago?

(Obviously this is all with the caveat that all or none of these games may go ahead!)
