- The Pro 14 rugby games may be scheduled to return in August 2020. Leinster x Munster & Connacht x Ulster may be the first games.
BBC reports that plans are currently being discussed resume a reduced Pro 14 championship on August 22.
Negotiations are underway between Pro 14 and the clubs. It is likely that if the games were played, they would be played behind closed doors. This means that there are no spectators present in the stands. The total return of the Pro 14 competition would be difficult, as it covers five countries, Ireland, Wales, Scotland, Italy and South Africa. Therefore, in the current climate it would not be possible to just start the games.
BBC reports that a virtual meeting was held on Thursday. The proposals were put in place to play two conference rounds with teams playing teams from their own country as of August 22. This would mean, for example, equipment between Leinster, Connacht, Munster and Ulster. However, when you look at Wales, Scotland and South Africa, it means that teams would have to play on consecutive weekends.
Scottish rugby operations director Dominic McKay, who is also a board member of PRO 14, said that any resumption of competition will depend on government approval. He said: "We are still looking at scenarios that could end the PRO 14 season."
Wales Online has launched the potential equipment which were written on August 22, which shows, in terms of games in the provinces of Ireland, Leinster playing Munster and Connacht against Ulster. On August 29, Leinster will travel to Ulster and Connacht will travel to Munster. The Heineken Champions Cup games are also scheduled to resume, starting on September 12th. The semi-finals will take place on September 26th. Whether this data is likely to be ongoing data remains questionable. This is my opinion, because the teams will have to travel to different countries.
A list of accessories was also drawn up Wales Online Report the season is likely to end in August / September. They report that the play-off Pro 14 semi-finals are scheduled for September 5. The final is scheduled for September 17th and 19th. Obviously, these are just drafts, as if the games were going forward, they would have to get the green light from government officials.
Currently, rugby is seen as not essential. This is like any other sport, as we are still in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic. In fact, rugby falls into stage 5 in terms of the government's stage 5 plan here in Ireland. This means that rugby can start from 10 August. However, as indicated earlier, if it is to return, the number of viewers will be limited or non-existent. Previously, there were discussions about whether to call up the season and give Leinster the trophy. This was because they had the most points on all sides in conferences A and B. The European place would also be awarded based on the position of the teams in the table. However, this is obviously not going to happen now, due to the new proposals that were elaborated by the PRO 14 hierarchy.
Personally, I can see the games coming back. However, they will obviously have to be behind closed doors. The only worrying aspect is probably when we get to the semi-final stages, where games will be played, for example? Would it be good, for example, for Edinburgh or Glasgow to travel to the RDS? These are all questions that need to be answered.
But now we can advertise equipment with Cardiff Blues, Dragons, Ospreys and Scarlets, as well as those involving Irish and Scottish teams, all of which could be transferred to the Republic and probably played behind closed doors.
