If it where just me and go for option 3 mainly to get the wonder of the xmas programme back again and given the shite we've all been through this year I think we all deserve a nice festive and competitive afternoon out at the rugby, but again thats just me.

Can't argue with that fozzie, all things considered.

The only downside would be the Aussie Tour being called off to accommodate Plan 3, but they might not come anyway, if there's 1) quarantine and 2) State of Origin on in November/December.

Option 3 also has issues with
-
TV Deal
Players contracts
Delaying start to 2021 season
Bomhead - "Lockers to prop."

The contract situation is an interesting one. I believe all contracts run 1 december to 30 november, and it could throw up a few "interesting" scenarios.

Lets take the lad eavelds at salford , on 1 december whats to stop him jumping ship from salford to castleford ? Where do saints stand with thompson ? Whats to stop aussie players at the end of there 2/3 year deal just going home ? Could warrington get greg inglis over early ?

The whole situation is an absolute legal minefield

It's difficult to decide on the best compromise but for me, the most important point is that next season (a world cup year) isn't affected adversely. Whatever we do this season isn't going to feel right now and if and when fans are allowed back I think that some will stay away until they're certain that it's safe. Delaying things in the hope of getting good crowds for a few games could backfire. I'd be happier knowing that whatever happens this year the players will get a good off season before getting back to normal for 2021.

Season tickets is the biggest one for me as they will have to be refunded, TV not so much now as the games can still be shown

I won’t ask for a refund on my season ticket. The club will need all the help it can get.
Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.
