I would guess, with the ridculous 48 hour ruling the Scarlets are well within their rights to request a decision on whether Bordeaux can fulfill the fixture early tomorrow as they would have to fly out Friday morning to satisfy the above regulation which of course does not affect Munster.

If anyone need any further evidence of the stupidity of the French & EU systems then look no further as clearly the Omicron variant is intelligent enough to spot the non border between Ireland & Ulster.

If we do get awarded it, then we would have done alright out of the first 3 rounds in Europe, 7 points out of a maximum 15, a zero points difference, with 2 away games and 1 away against the 2 favourites.  
The covid lottery … i wonder if there is a programme or video game they can just simulate the rest of the season and be done with this farce.

This is ridiculous, Bath are due to be playing in France on Saturday and they still don't know whether their team will have to quarantine for 48hrs when they arrive in France. 
If they do need to quarantine, they need to fly out early tomorrow to ensure they are out of quarantine in time to play the game. But still no news from France!

Sale have confirmed they’re travelling to France. Suggests an exemption is about to be announced.

Dwayne Peel speaks to media ahead of Euro clash in Bordeaux

Dwayne Peel spoke to the media today ahead of Sunday’s Heineken Champions Cup clash with Bordeaux-Begles.

Here’s what he had to say …

Dwayne, the big question is, is the game going ahead?

DP: “Yes, as far as I know the game is going ahead. There are a few hurdles to cross, but we are prepping to go and looking forward to it. This is a great competition, we were disappointed that we missed rounds one and two. We know it is a tough place to go, Bordeaux are flying at the moment, it is going to be a big challenge, but we feel we are in a good place and it will be good for the boys to play in front of fans as well.”

How are you Covid-wise?

DP: “We are better in terms of Covid than the last couple of weeks. It is such a moving feast you are taking each week and each test as it comes. Having that Ospreys game on New Year’s Day was awesome and we were looking forward to pushing on and playing games and we know that will come because we have a lot of games ahead of us – Bordeaux, Bristol and Ulster in this block and more rescheduled matches during the Six Nations. It just seems crazy that we are in the second week of January with six games under our belt. We have a good feeling in our group, the boys are training hard and we have been preparing as well as we can.”

Where would a win in Bordeaux rank for the club?

DP: “It would be right up there, France is always a special place to play in European competition. You have to be prepared to go there and play because you are going to be under the pump at times. When you think of all the big scalps Welsh teams have taken in France, they have been under the pump in a big way, you have to stick in the game and dig in and then you have a chance. It is about having that mentality to fight for the 80 minutes and see where you are at the end of it.”

What are Bordeaux’s threats?

DP: “They have a quality back-row with (Cameron) Woki in there, they have a strong set-piece as you can imagine, international half-backs and dangerous players out wide. The reality is they are a quality outfit and French league leaders; they have taken some big scalps already this year. If we give them space and time they will come after us. The big thing for us is that we don’t give them that and we take our game to them.”

What is the latest on Ken Owens, Johnny Williams and Josh Macleod?

DP: “Ken has had a procedure (on his back). He is doing rehab and the plan is to get him back playing this season. With that sort of injury, it’s caution, especially where Ken is in his career. We are not going to be risking anything with him. The thing for him is that we get him back on his feet and back in training, when that time is right, and we will see where we are with that.

“As for Johnny and Josh, they won’t be available for the next couple of weeks. Johnny, unfortunately, pulled his calf towards the end of our South African trip, so he’ll be out for a couple of weeks. We’re not far off with him, but he won’t be right this week. 

“Josh is obviously bitterly disappointed.  The guy has worked so hard and been fantastic in training, leading up to the Ospreys game.  To have that hamstring injury so early in the game is obviously a killer blow for him. He was so excited about coming back and had worked so hard to come back.  But, look, it’s one of those things in sport.  One thing I know about him is that he’ll get back on the horse straight away.  He’s straight in the gym doing his rehab etc. Hopefully, we’ll see him in the shorter rather than longer term back in a Scarlets shirt.”

The missing piece on that is when they’re lifted for everyone. All I’ve seen re the teams is a request for waiving the conditions re when to arrive and being able to leave and not risk 10 day stay for positive cases.

Either way, fingers crossed for a full weekend of live matches available to watch.

France opens its border to UK holiday makers from tomorrow, no quarantine but must show negative test taken within 24 hours of departure.

Game on!

Its my understanding that Unvaccinated travelers still have to self isolate. Is that correct?

If so that would mean that any individuals in the Scarlets party who are not fully vaccinated will be unable to travel.

Those who are un-vaccinated must provide an essential reason as to why they are entering France.

ETA: Unsure if that means they have to self isolate.

This is all a shambles, some teams are due to play on Saturday but would have had to leave today at the latest if the 48 hour isolation rule is still in force today.  ERC should just award the same points as was discussed for round 2!, that would mean no club is disadvantaged by the changes in travel arrangements of the countries involved, and as they are the reverse fixtures of round 2, it seems the only fair outcome.
However, if Bordeaux can’t fulfill the fixture due to Covid cases in their squad then we should get the 5 match points and 28.0 score line that Bristol had in round 1.

The link to the BBC article is below. The concerning statement is that, Unvaccinated travelers need a compelling reason to travel and must still isolate for 10 days on arrival. Surely that would exclude any non triple jabbed Scarlets players and support team members from traveling to France?

Any of our intended travelling party who are not fully vaccinated and do not pass a test within 24 hours of travel will not be going to Bordeaux. That is pretty reasonable now that the silly 48 hour quarantine has been dropped.

The BBC take on the new regulations is that travelers need to be vaccinated AND pass a COVID test, see quote from BBC latest article below, which still suggests unvaccinated players and staff will have to self isolate.

 Players or staff who are not vaccinated would still have to isolate for 10 days upon arrival and, regardless of vaccination status, all travellers must have a negative Covid-19 test 24 hours before leaving the UK.”
