Raider you raise an interesting question. The RN are not elite as defined by the RFU ie not playing in either the Premiership or Championship. I am sure the Champ clubs/Nat 1 clubs who arranged pre season fixtures with eh other but then had to cancel them and scramble around for replacements would be very keen to find out how/why this game has been sanctioned. To be honest the RN 1st XV, especially at the beginning of the season, is nowhere near the standard of Pirates so it may be a Pirates Development team rather than their 1st XV squad-which would be allowed. A Coventry side may well be playing the Army in March but it will not be their Championship 1st XV and hopefully by then all the testing at elite level will have disappeared.

The Pirates only have one squad so it will not be a Development XV

Rotated first teamers?

Didn't pirates play a player from their partner club a few years back in the cup?

Dropout, I was responding to Marigold when he suggested the fixture would be permitted as Pirates could play a ‘non’ professional ie Development XV vs RN. I was merely stating that the Pirates do not have such a thing.

As you state they did play players from neighbouring clubs in previous cup competitions but I would suggest this would not be permitted currently as if there cannot be pre season friendlies between the pro game and semi-pro then surely guest players are not allowed either?

ProD2 side RCVannes to play Jersey Reds on 20th August.  If previous matches are anything to go by, should be a good one.  #ChampRugby v ProD2

Friendly/Training Match, Sat 5th Aug - Hull Ionians v Leeds, is now off.
Leeds cannot raise necessary playing numbers.

Worrying. But should probably be in the National 1 forum.
BTW do Leeds Tykes have any of their own players, or are they just the Leeds Becketts university side?

Due to Covid isolation.

CQ they will have to have their own players surely. Leeds Beckett play in the BUCS Super League which is a very high/tough standard. Nat One is tough and getting tougher. It would certainly be against player welfare considerations for players to be regularly playing two matches each week.

Camquin,
This thread is headed 'Pre-Season Friendlies' and that is what I was referring to. I will also put it on the Nat 2 thread.

Ampthill have announced two more preseason friendlies and it comes as no surprise to see the opponents are Bedford. The first game is at Dillingham Park on 28 August with the return match at Goldington Road on 11 September. Apart from being a stern and therefore useful test against what looks to be a very much improved Bedford squad, both clubs should bank excellent gate and bar receipts.

Looking like 6 games between the two clubs if they are together in the useless cup competition.

Does anyone know if all this season’s Championship games will be streamed online like last season for say £10 a game.
