WHAT surreal times we are living in.

As the Coronavirus situation continues to develop, the RFU took the unprecedented step of cancelling all rugby until April 14.

It seems a sensible decision based on the advice of health experts as we continue to combat the virus, and we'll just have to play a waiting game for the time being.

There will be inevitable questions once the game is allowed to restart, as to how the 2019/20 season is resolved.

How will promotion/relegation be resolved? Will the current season eat into the start of the next one? We will just have to wait and see.

So much has happened in the past week that it's almost possible to forget Rams continued their amazing National One season with a thrilling 40-38 victory at Cinderford.

In a game rescheduled after it was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch last month, the two sides scored six tries apiece in a cracking advertisement for the game.

Fair play to Cinderford, as I'm led to believe some of their players were due to be at the Cheltenham Festival during the week – their hangovers obviously weren't too severe!

Conor Corrigan was the two-try star for Rams including one brilliant solo effort where he collected his own kick before dotting down.

Alex Seers was again on song with the boot in landing five of his six conversion attempts, and that's ultimately what helped the visitors over the line.

The win lifted Seb Reynolds' side back up to third in the table – they would be second and just three points behind leaders Richmond if it weren't for the RFU's ludicrous five-point penalty for an administrative error – and to do that in your first season in the third tier of English rugby really is a phenomenal achievement.

Well done to them all.

The other game which took place last week saw Berkshire Shire Hall well beaten in their top-of-the-table encounter with Aldermaston, but I guess in times like these that is pretty insignificant.

Fingers crossed we will overcome the situation as quickly as possible, but for the time being I hope everyone stays safe and healthy.
