Armchair Fan wrote:Yes, Hernani was relegated and Getxo promoted. 12 teams as usual.

There are rumours about Bathco CR Santander selling its spot to Ingenieros Industriales de Las Rozas but nothing confirmed yet.

There is a proposal to create an 8-team league between DH and DHB to accommodate Hernani and the seven teams that should have played promotion playoffs but that must be approved by FER General Assembly in late July.

Three tentative schedules have been released with starts of the season in September, October or November.

Thanks a lot!

Spanish players have launched their trade union under the guidance of former national team prop Francisco Blanco (he's a lawyer):

The acronym chosen is curious, APOME means "APOyo a la MElé", "Supporting the scrum".

Will this be for national team players, club players or both?

from the statement, it seems to be created by most of the players not only the internationals.

That's great news, more players around the globe should follow this lead.

Today Alfonso Feijóo launched his presidential campaign, "Rugby Responsable", a clear attack towards Valor de Rugby as he claims their plans are overambitious and lack financial grounding.

I would love to give you a summary of what he said, but streaming is unavailable to rewatch and manifesto hasn't been fully published. Very few novelties, to be honest. He claims División de Honor will be back on TV by early 2021, that U23 and U17 men and U18 XV women sides will be created and that a high performance centre will be built in Madrid but it's as a program it's as sensible as boring.

Good on him for trying to make it but damn he will be 37. As long as he’s committed to helping the team then I guess that’s a win.
