19/20 opening fixtures

Postby Mikey Brown » Wed Jul 10, 2019 11:29 am

Opening Premiership fixtures

Bristol v Bath (19:45 BST, Friday, 18 October)
Exeter v Harlequins (15:00 BST, Saturday, 19 October)
Sale v Gloucester (15:00 BST, Saturday, 19 October)
Saracens v Northampton (15:00 BST, Saturday, 19 October)
Worcester v Leicester (15:00 BST, Saturday, 19 October)
Wasps v London Irish (15:00 BST, Sunday, 20 October)

Not exactly confident about Exeter away. But I suppose they’ll be a fair bit more depleted than we will.

Actually I’m not sure that’s even right. We won’t have Marler to take advantage of their missing tight-heads.

I'd assume in advance it'll be home wins across all those fixtures

Yeah, Exe won't be crazy depleted at all, really. Which is a bit insane considering where they finished last time out...

What, they'll be missing Williams, Francis, LCD, Skinner, Slade, Nowell, Hogg. Anyone else? That's not much, really.

We'll be missing: Marler, Sinckler, Kunatani, Goneva, Botta, Landajo, Campagnaro, Lasike...mainly 2nd choice players, which is weird.

It's the same week as the RWC quarters, so I'd imagine the group stage returnees will start to be available from the second week of the season.

We'll likely be missing Genge, Cole, Lavanini, Kalamafoni (maybe) Youngs, Ford, Tuilagi, May, Holmes (maybe), Veainu. Which could leave a starting XV of Bateman, Youngs, Heyes, Green, Spencer, Taufua, Thompson, Liebenberg, White, McPhilips, Olowofela, Eastmond, Taute, Aspland-Robinson, Worth.

That's not a bad team, but like last season, it'll depend on if we're still less than the sum of our parts.

Most clubs appear in 5 televised matches. Bristol only feature in 3, Sale, Irish and Worcester only have 2.

Gloucester top the TV appearances with 7! Do they have somene on the board at BT Sport?

More likely because of Mark Atkinson at 12 and his sidekick at 10.

Maybe, we should have a referendum on who gets picked for the country at 10? If Cips is so popular . . . .

That'd end up with David Beckham.

Beckham at 7 would be even worse
