The shape of things to come?

A slightly worrying thought prompted by a small story from Singapore today - are we likely to see repeats over here this winter?
Final postponed due to H1N1 scare
The much awaited final of the Guinness Singapore Women's Rugby XV 2009 between Blacks RFC and
SRC has been postponed to 8 August 2009 as two players from SRC are suspected to be down with the H1N1 virus.
Though a relatively mild virus, by all accounts, the inconvienence of widespread postponements of games and training sessions could be significant - especially if they affect the regional programme. This dinosaur (a reasonable metaphor - huge, lumbering, been around since the dawn of time, out-of-date, not fit-for-purpose, and wreaking havoc with everything in its path whether it intends to or not) causes enough problems as it is, but - with very little room for manoeuvre in the calendar if anything goes wrong - in the past it has always been the club game that has suffered if postponements have hit the regional programme.

Hopefully it won't happen - and there is not a lot we can do if it does, other than hope that RFUW allows regionals to take their share of the pain... and not throw in new Superleagues or other random ideas.
