Here are the Round 1 fixtures:

The final round of regular season matches will be played on Saturday 6th June, with the winner crowned after the grand final on Saturday 20th June.

  1. The old season ran from end Aug. Can’t recall, but presumably the new Oct start is to give the players more rest ? No ‘easier’ home kick off for Irish. Interesting to see how they fare. They won’t want to stumble @ the start. Likewise for Wasps. They struggled financially last season, lost players & don’t know how their strength will hold up this time. Bristol, @ home, will look to get out of the blocks in a consolidation programme. Tough start for Northampton. May be Informative & to see if Boyd’s boys can upset the Fez heads’ apple cart. Looks a predictable 2 horse race again though. Surprised to see that Ford was top pts scorer last yr. Farrell trailed somewhat in his wake.

  2. How many years has Ackerman been @ Gloucs? It took him 4 years to get the Lions to the top. I believe, when he accepted the job @ Gloucs, he said that to get any team to the top takes 4 years, this year Gloucs knocking on the door.
