People believe there is an event at the Ricoh. Not sure myself. Hope the fixtures go our way without us dropping down too far. Personally always prefer points on the board than games in hand.

Wonder if there is a mass delivery of black and yellow seats to the Ricoh today.....
Just to note I don't think this is the case but a bit odd this event that has caused the game to be moved isn't on the Ricoh website according to tweets I've read.

You must be expecting a bumper crowd for Saturday if you are getting in front of the queue!!!!!!

Are these things that were booked in before our return to the Ricoh? I assumed they must be but if they were surely we'd have been scheduled to play away tonight. Seems we're getting a bit of leeway from the FL. The worry is that at some point they might enforce their own regulations and insist we have primacy. If they do that and Wasps don't cooperate we have a problem. Maybe someone on the SCG could ask what the status is contractually.

Not always the case. Insomnia was booked and that weekend the FL still put us down for a home game.

Why didn't we just play Wednesday night instead? Why move to another month?

When the Southend match was rescheduled it was by a few days, why not same again?
