Anybody else heard about the start of the Premiership Rugby Cup??

As I've previously bought tickets for our games at Northampton, I get sent emails from them and have recently received an email advising that they begin the defense of this cup on 21st September!!!

This is 4 weeks before the Premership begins!

It might be that we don't have to wait until the middle of October to get our rugby fix!!

No for sure we don't - but to a certain extent they are pre season warm up matches (though a bit more meaningful than that)

Good idea really, as in a non-World Cup season it's a complete waste of time that barely anyone wants to watch.

They should do this each year for pre-season. Have a mini league of local derbies, call it the Prem Cup and that's it done and dusted for the season.

Maybe play resulting knockout semis in the winter and Final in the Spring.

Job done.
