On resuming, there was an article in the Guardian here in the UK in which a BT Sport executive said that the next round of TV rights will see a reductions/correction in the money on offer. Looks like any reliance of ever expanding TV rights for financial planning is now over.

The Belgian Rugby Association has announced that, in all probability, the Belgian league will not be able to start in October and that the BeNecup matches cannot be played in Belgium.
In view of the great uncertainty about the start of the competition in Belgium, it has been decided, in mutual consultation, to cancel the BeNecup 2020.
After the summer holidays, discussions will be held between the two unions about the set-up of the BeNecup in 2021.

The Dutch Ereklasse will now be played according to 'scenario B'. This means that in a first phase a single round robin will be played between the 16 teams.
In the second phase, the top 8 teams from the first phase will then play their return matches in a Champions Pool and the bottom 8 teams play their return matches in a Throphypoule. All teams therefore play 22 matches.
The national championship will be determined by a final match between the numbers 1 and 2 of the Champions Pool.

In principle, the Ereklasse competition starts on September 26th.
It is possible that this start date will be postponed to October 3rd.

Un update with some new dates. Hungary should begin on Sept 5, Belgium on October 3, Serbia in autumn (they didn't specify further), the Welsh championship in September if I have understood correctly. The x indicates the countries where I suppose there's not a XV national championship

It seems to me Premiership & Top 14 are taking very different approaches to positive tests.

The Premiership isn't releasing any data (which club, if it's a player or staff) and just cracking on with overall numbers of roughly 1 case per 1,000 tests (very hard to get 0 positives with that many due to the specificity of the test i.e. false positives).

Top 14 are announcing the club and loads of pre-season games are getting called off due to these one off tests.

The Guardian was also reporting that France have no exemption for elite athletes from their quarantine regulations, which might make the European Cup impossible to play.

It is increasingly likely that Spain won't restart before 2021. We are seeing many sport events called off for September and October and government hasn't a clear position on this nor other matters of bigger importance (return to schools, for example) than amateur sports like rugby.

National championships started or restarted in Ukraine, Denmark and Romania
No further news so far from Italian federation, nor a calendar; and the first potential date for the beginning is far just four weeks

The national XV championship restarts today also in Serbia with the game Dinamo v Partizan (live below)
Instead in Croatia the national 7s championship, programmed for the next weekend, has been cancelled due to the deteriorating of the sanitary situation

Austria will not play any competitions in autumn 2020, but the clubs can hold test matches at their own risk.

Regional competitions are probably possible after consultation with the regional health authorities, depending on the number of Corona cases.

In Prague some players have been detected positive and so just one of the four games of the last round of the Czech championship was played (half of the teams of the championship are based in Prague)

I know Scotland wants Independence, but I never realised that annexing a huge chunk of the North of England was part of the plan ;)

Every time I have to draw the borders of Wales and Scotland, or those of South Sudan in the old maps, I'm in big troubles...
