There used to be a team from Lugano in the top tier of Swiss rugby, I guess they must have got relegated.

They are in second category, out of four categories; one category above important german-speaking cities like Bern, St.Gallen, Schaffhausen, Luzern. Not bad. But apparently it's the only italian-speaking club in the swiss senior championship: no Bellinzona nor Locarno are fielding a senior team, if I checked correctly

But what are the costs of pre-game "anti-covid tests"? If around € 7,000 were spent on Pro14's Zebre - Benetton, the cost for a TOP12 match should be around € 5000 (2,500 per team). Lower cost linked to various aspects, including the lower number of people involved especially in the technical staff.
...
With the Treviso coach we tackled the issue of economic expenditure linked to pre-match buffers. "We will carry out about 40 swabs for this friendly match."

“Is it a sustainable cost? No, it cannot be sustainable because only a few companies can afford this expense, we are talking about € 50,000 per season ”.

“In Italy it is clear that tampons can only be made in TOP12. In France, where the championships have already started, tests are carried out only in the first three categories (TOP14, PROD2 and PROD3), the professional championships ".

If for the friendlies the costs of the tampons are charged to the teams, for the championship it should be Fir to bear the expense, probably with the € 320,000 "saved" by the renunciations of Medicei and San Donà.

Can we return to play without testing in the lower leagues?
"We must return to play, the movement must continue to live and the sport machine must continue" concludes Casellato.

Saturday 10 October is the date identified for the start of the TOP12 championship (now TOP10). Rumors in the environment, however, much more prudently, indicate 17 or 24 October as the date for the restart of TOP10 and minor leagues.

According to a quick search, more than one third of the games in the top categories of the french championships were postponed in this last weekend

0/7 games postponed in Top14
2/8 in ProD2
1/7 in Nationale
9/20 in Fed1
4/8 in Elite 1 (women)
3/5 in Elite 2 (women)

19/55 matches postponed

It will be not easy for any championship to play all the scheduled games

The less pro a tournament is, the likeliest it is to suffer postponements. Guys at semipro levels cannot afford to go from home to training sessions and back home while regularly tested like pros.

Just one covid serologic test before the beginning of the season here in Italy, for every player and staff member of every championship; after that, just a body temperature measurement before trainings and games. The national team, instead, will have regular covid tests during the season

The competitions restarted in Croatia and regional competitions have begun also in Germany, so we can say that rugby is played or is going to be played in the next weeks almost in every nation, in Europe
