Is this likely to go ahead now that "the plague" is sweeping through N Italy?

Lock down in Northern Italy, I fear a postponement.
Unfortunately, we normally have a number of supporters at this who may loose out but maybe Ryanair/Easyjet may be generous on this occasion.
What is the exact criteria to get a refund?

You'll get one if your flight is cancelled. Other than that I think you would need to claim through your travel insurance.

Do we know if the bars will be open?

I’m inclined to go anyway.

Abandoned your quest to deal with CoViDi19?
It's a middle class plague spread by people returning from ski trips, cruise, half term sun breaks and rugby jollies!

From a purely rugby perspective, is a postponement a good thing or a bad thing?

I think with Shanners carrying a leg injury combined with injuries and 6 Nations contingent all away we have a better chance further down the road. The two Italian away games need to be targeted for my money.

Possibly but they'll have their players back too.

That's assuming the game can be squeezed in for later which looks like it might need us to lose to Toulouse first.

The weekend of the last round of the 6 Nations is apparently favourite, although why another two weeks is going to make much difference in terms of the Chinese flu I don't know.

How much of a backlash would there be if Mike brings bring the virus back to NI with him?

Italian holidaymakers arriving in Mauritius were told they were being quarantined so returned to Italy. There is always the hope that the same could apply for flights from Treviso to Dublin. :stir: :stir:

Mike will enjoy counting the days in quarantine.

95% certain I'm going to write the trip off. The risk of the bars being closed is too great.
