Calendar 2020

The 2020 Calendar has been badly affected by the Covid-19 emergency, everything after the shortened Lille tournament in March being either cancelled or postponed. We hope to be able to hold the usual September whole club event in Edinburgh, and whole club training sesssions in October, November and December, along with the December whole club event. Scottish Thistles have a contingency plan to try to arrange matches in Japan during the period when the 2020 World Cup would have been held, if players cannot obtain refunds or deferments of payments made for flights and hotels.
