Fans backlash against Danny Care after he voices discontent at new fixture schedule

Danny Care earlier voiced his discontent at the congested playing schedule that has been unveiled for the 2020-21 season leading some fans to backlash angrily.

The 33-year-old Harlequins scrum-half has been a vocal critic of the demanding fixture list that Premiership players have been subject to – particularly since the rugby restart.

Firstly, Care made this tongue in cheek response to the news that Premiership players would be playing on Boxing Day and New Year’s day this year.

Danny Care then tweeted earlier in another tweet referring to the Harlequins playing schedule with a tweet directly criticising those who compiled the fixture list. Care has since deleted the tweet but this is what it said.

“Can someone point me toward the person/people/joker that put together this schedule please?” – @dannycare

The England 9 deleted the tweet after some fierce backlash but those responses are still available to be seen…

The new fixture list is as congested as you can imagine with Premiership Cup fixtures shoehorned into midweek matches with a lack of weekend dates available. With European fixtures also having to be fitted in it makes for an even more packed schedule.

There has also been concerns that international players could miss up to the first 14 weeks of the Premiership season with the Autumn tests and Six Nations all needing to be played around this busy period.
