A lot of concern about what will happen to front row players in this format. Im gonna put myself out there and pledge We will still pick our normal squads in the normal way. I cant see any development in playing a team full of backs and back rows to try and win what will essentially be a series of friendlies under the adapted laws.

Will be interesting to see what happens could be some 40 - 50 point draws or some 0-0s

Its not the game but its something and gets lads back at it. I have some concerns and will be interesting to see if we get rafts of infections or nothing. Lots of trust in clubs and players  being sensible if they display symptoms... I would feel better if there was some low cost testing available to allow clubs to check.

I hope they dish the money out equally between clubs and keep it fair

I really worry... its not at all good for North east womens rugby. They were always at least competitive before but this isnt justvblooding youngsters... they aren't ready for the level of competition and I cant see them keeping any premiership side under 50 points home or away. They are young and some may go further but any of those with talent will be lured away as per Heather kerr, abbie ward, claudia macdonald especially if they turn down the chance to keep experience in the squad like tam Taylor. If I were Waterloo I would be pretty furious. If the falcons could have sorted out some sort of credible bid it would have been ran so.much better

I agree... I guess final confirmation of what we all feared... I suppose it does at least allow clubs to put a plan in place... but i fear some clubs may not exist by the time we start back.up... Brace up lads it's gonna get bumpy

Not knocking you pinky, what happend wasn't of your doing at all. But there was a lot of dmp involvement especially first session. Maybe there were things you weren't aware of, in fact I would say there was a fair bit that went on you dont. Its a shame really because it didn't need to be that way.. i watched the game v North Midlands and my opinion was that both sides weren't as strong as the previous season when we played at their place. Though certainly the Durham side had potential. I didn't see the lancs game though.  That's no slight on the coaches, I just thought the squad was too young

I always said DMP should have garnered a better relationship with local clubs and they could have had some help to get through this tough time

If you look at it sharks provided directly or indirectly 5 or 6 world Cup.winners who are no longer there. In the England set up there were a few dmp girls and now there are none. They interfered in the county set up last season and took the squad backwards as they wanted to have control to blood some youngsters who weren't ready... now they are putting young ayers in who are clearly not ready hoping to get some talented Durham.uni girls in... which last year worked but this year there is less strength... watching them.yesterday I would say they would lose to a decent championship side like novos or Barnsley... certainly west park leeds

I read an article with comments from Tam.. they have treated her appallingly and the DOR seems to have made the call. She was ready to play another season but had the original offer withdrawn at last minute. Whether that was funding or not I don't know.

There are lots of clubs coming up but the work between clubs in region needs to.improve... Yorkshire have a proper pyramid and clubs are flourishing as a result

Was nice to see Dannah get on for sharks today and some local youngsters making the breakthrough but another heavy defeat for DMP. I watched the game on sarries website and can't remember DMP having the ball much. Couple of runs from the 2nd rows was the only bright spots. 2 tries from tam Taylor for sarries which she will have enjoyed after her release. I hope this new DOR knows what he is doing because it could had a franchise into Yorkshire and we will lose elite rugby in the North east

Many clubs face difficult financial times and while clubs should work together its probably down to members to help as much as they can. Im assuming dmp are requesting help from their own?

Im afraid I wouldn't be donating... though I do hope they come through the problems.
