The club have announced that the home games against Ealing and London Irish will now be played on a Saturday.
Full details on the website.

Probably to attract more away supporters. Have to see if we get more on Saturdays than Sundays.
I guess we'll lose a few people who support other local clubs on Saturdays, but may pick up others who don't like Sundays.

Makes sense for the Irish game with their support bu5 not sure about Ealing. Be interesting to see the result though as you say.

According To Robyn on Facebook:- "This was factored in and Redruth are AWAY on both occasions Camborne are AWAY in Feb but HOME in March.
So only 1 clash in 4"

That's good - but there may be supporters, and players, of other clubs like St Ives, Hayle, Truro etc who will be at their own clubs on the Saturdays. I'm not against this, it's worth a try to see how it goes.

Ealing away support will be negligible. As Irish and Ealing are tipped to be 1st and 2nd, is this about Sky?
If the crowd for Ealing is a good one, do we revisit the Sunday decision?
So many questions....

Reasoning for Sundays remains valid - Friday nights were just silly. But I think the odd Saturday is a good call. It makes life easier for the Exiles and should encourage away fans. Ealing brought a few last time and it will appeal to the well heeled SW somethings
