How will Premiership games be decided if they can’t be played

The Gallagher Premiership will return in less than three days time after clubs finally agreed on a August 15th start date, but they also voted on what would happen if games can’t be completed.

According to the Mail Online, players have been strictly warned about the need to follow Covid-19 rules ahead of season resuming on Friday evening.

The responsibility will be with players and staff to maintain the protocols, especially those playing away from home when group transport and accommodation are needed.

As a result, if If any club or individual breaches rules, they will gift opponents a 20-0 win with no appeal process in place.
