It’s funny a lot were critical of Dragons for not streaming the game last week but it’s ok for us not to do it. Would be nice for people have to travel over 130 miles each way for every game. 
She asks why i still can't answer. I guess its in the blood.

Don't really understand why the club cannot stream games like this for a small fee. I am sure supporters would be happy to pay.

Let's not forget that this has been organised as a development fixture, to allow players - especially young prospects and key injury returnees - to get some valuable game time ahead of the SA mini-tour which will must happen without our internationals.

Last Friday's game at Rodney Parade was initially scheduled for 2pm - they only changed it when there was a clamour from rugby-starved crowds. The game has to be on Friday to fit with the clubs' other plans and commitments, and unfortunately it will overlap with other events in the town - it's regrettable but can't really be helped. The club will not make any money from the fixture - it's about game time for the players made possible by the new URC/Autumn Test scheduling, and it should be seen as such.

Hopefully a little more forward planning will be possible for similar windows in the future - it would be great to see games against English clubs' development sides - but let's keep in mind the primary focus of the game.

Maybe next year it could be set up as a little A league to be played in the November window. 3 rounds, home or away, done.

If its on Fridays it should ideally be streamed. I get why its not, but keeping fans engaged is more likely going to attract fans back to the more viable Saturday games (when they resume).

I don’t think we have ever done that sadly but  tbh with it being us v the Ospreys and a local derby against our biggest rivals I would expect the chances as being Zero! 🤔 I would hope for a decent crowd on Friday at 7pm
For a game that isn't dictated by TV, they pick 7pm on Friday night clashing with Llanelli carnival? Excellent forward thinking as always by the club.

I think the club can be forgiven for this kick off time when you consider that a Saturday time would clash with televised Internationals & there is the small matter of organising getting to South Africa which presumably could be happening on Sunday!!!!

We had no crowds for a whole season people should be thankful.

I'd be far more likely to attend a lunchtime KO on the Saturday or even a Thursday night if i lived locally with young kids. Appreciate Sunday might be out of the question but would the squad go over there that early given the supposed lack of jetlag flying south?
No jet lag as SA isnt much difference time wise to us. Lag is when you fly across a vast difference in time zone.

I have flown to Jo'burg and Cape Town often (and back of course).

No jet-lag but it's a long flight and you are always tired at the end of it.
Best timing is 12 hrs to Jo'burg, 13 hours to the Cape.

Plus all the messing around at the airports.
No fun at all.

Add transit to London for any flight really…and no direct flights to Durban ( connect through Joburg I’m guessing).
24 hours door to door.

Agree any long flight is tiring but jet lag is something totally different.

I'd like to see Patchell have another 60 minutes so that he can sharpen up for the SA trip. If fit, it would be good to see Josh McLeod and Corey Baldwin have some game time too.
