The Dons website has been updated with the fixtures. It mentions that we are due to play N Wales (a) in the opening game but the full fixture list shown on the Dons' site does still show the Keighley fixture being played on the same day.

The Keighley fixture is a mistake

Of note, we have London on Friday night lights, the day before the Challenge Cup final for which a lot of us have tickets

May be we could move the home game v Workington to one of the two dates quoted as away games ie 3/5/20 & 2/8/20.

Interesting that we've drawn Skolars away before cup final and Newcastle before magic. I'm very happy with that. Some might call us a big draw?

Hope we have avoided taking a fixture/fixtures to Fev.

The Workington and Coventry games look like the ones that are 'at risk'.

With Workington (away) being listed twice, there may be something afoot with regards to re-arranging it.

Coventry will be playing at the Butts Park Arena which has a 4G pitch. They shouldn't have any re-seeding issues preventing us reversing the fixtures.

We could play at home on 29th March and away on 12th July... providing Coventry are prepared to do a swap. Let's hope so!

Thought those discussions would have gone on after the draft list came out.

Well said. There is more than enough time to re-arrange those two games that fall in the time scale that the pitch has its annual spruce up.
