2019/2020 Season

Postby D4surfer » January 10th, 2019, 11:00 am

Does anyone know when the Pro14 and Heineken Cup kick off next season. I always book holidays to avoid home fixtures. For example, the first weekend in September is always an away fixture to allow the RDS pitch to recover from the Horse Show.

With the World Cup starting at the end of September, what the story this year?

Europe comps don't start until mid November. League probably starts at the usual time but will take a break for a couple of weeks in October
