Re: European Finals

Chops - I think you have the answer in your post. I doubt even the players, who's list of career achievements could be affected, would place rugby matches, however important, above the health and lives of themselves and their families.

I assume that delays to the European campaign matches could have a major impact on our ability to win it, particularly if moved to later in the summer or the autumn, as we may then be reduced to our 2020/21 Championship squad. At some point this summer, player contracts with Saracens will end and those leaving or going out on loan will start their new contracts wit other clubs.
It goes without saying that delaying the season to protect lives is absolutely the right thing to be doing, and the result of a sports competition are a minor concern compared with the current crisis, but this is an issue I have not seen discussed yet.
