Yes, they officially state on their website that any team playing 10 home games this season will play 11 next season.

Is that easy to ensure, given that the conferences will be settled via league placings?

I dont think they can say any team playing 10 this year WILL play 11 next year, as it could end up with every side who played 10 in the same conference next year (mathematically), however I believe the intention is there to try to make it fair.  Guess it will be up to our reps to push the case in to them that we are entitled to 11 home games next season when the scheduling convos begin, and hope that we shout louder than the rest of the 10 game sides.

It does specifically state that on their website. They should probably say "we will do our best to ensure teams alternate", rather than imply it's guaranteed:

Yep it would make more sense for them to admit that it will most likely not be possible, but I think they would rather just go on the grounds that the TV fans dont really care, so there wont be too much of an uproar when it doesn't work.

Apart from the earlier ones about more favourable timing and/number of their away trips to SA and ahead of European rounds?

Or, am I reading between the lines and maybe it'll even up next year?

Any offence taken on board is only a literate/cy consequence. Every attempt at humour is just that. No personal insult intended. Standards lowered for trolls.

We're obviously planning on balancing this out with home 1/4 final(Europe) and Semi Finals (Pro 14)

All this was inevitable to be fair. There was no way on this earth everyone would be happy with the fixtures.

Just noticed this, back to the bad old days of ridiculous fixture scheduling I thought we'd sorted this out. I'm off to the Ulster website right now - I'll be back.

Poor old Ulster they play 7 home games by Jan 1st. Suspiciously they have an extra home game though.

Good to avoid the Saturday Wales game v Australia . Hope that logic is applied to all the "TBA" fixtures
