Following the guidance of the Rugby Football Union, our first round Championship fixture against Bedford Blues will still take place, as scheduled this evening at Butts Park Arena.
With a respectful continuation of sport, the professional and community game will be bringing fans together to show their respect following the tragic death of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II.
We are all deeply saddened by the news, and our thoughts and sincere condolences are with the Royal Family at this time.
Gates will open, as scheduled, at 5pm before our 7.45pm kick off, and we look forward to welcoming you all to Butts Park ahead of our season opener.
Thank you for your patience in this highly delicate matter.
