Is the rainbow cup the start of next season OR the end of this season? Just thinking when our leavers will depart.

I believe it is this season & the only one that I know won’t be available is Tex.

I think the season is over, but I really don't know. Contracts typically run not by tournament but by month (as we found out last season). So maybe they do have a few more games. I am guessing it was agreed with Tex that he would let go to see his newborn and wouldnt have received payment for last few months/games. If the RC games dont mean too much, may they let Ball off too. Depends if he wants/needs the money I guess.

It feels to me that the season is now really over. Our players who were in with a shout at Lions selection are going to struggle to create an impression in what is left of the season. Suppose though that Gatland has already made his mind up on most of the squad. Having said that the Saracens boys who were integral to his team last time out will struggle even more.

I was thinking that as contracts usually end in June, that is why the Rainbow cup ends in June.

The seasons/contracts run until July, not sure what you mean by "as we found out last year" because everyone that was due to leave had left over the Summer

I'm pretty sure the contracts run out at the end of June. 
We're still still here!
