It’s never too early for BT Premiership predictions

The rugby season is over, only 84 days until the 2017/18 season begins. As rugby now enters its brief summer hibernation period after a thrilling 2016/17 BT Premiership, the Hawick News already has a prediction for how all the teams will stack up in 2018. It has familiar faces at the top – our top three have all featured in the post-season play-offs in every year since it began in 2014 – and at the bottom with the usual relegation candidates.

Players can’t switch off during the summer

The rugby season is almost over, but for some the grind never stops. As the curtains finally drop on what was a long, difficult and, for the most part, testing 2016/17 campaign for the Greens at Jed-Forest on Saturday, two months of rest and recuperation await – but how much rest do the players really give themselves in preparation for the next season?
