With summer ahead, probably the last thing you want to think about is next season but, if it helps your planning, the 1st XV fixtures are now posted on the appropriate page. They sit below last season's fixtures which will remain until we delete the match reports. We won't do that just yet because it makes the website look a bit bare. Cup details TBC.
