Other Senior Rugby / Re: End of the Championship..
« on: February 13, 2020, 09:54:09 AM »
What are the championship clubs doing that Brods and Scabs and countless others aren't in terms of growing the game outside the prem. How many will survive now just because the funding has been reduced is a pretty poor business model in any case and clubs like Orrell, Manchester, Halifax and Wakefield know the true cost of chasing a dream that doesn't really exist. Clubs were meant to spend money on facilities and improve infrastructure etc but other than a handful how many have done. Carnegies troubles is down to mismanagement which i'm sure has come into the decision making for this. There are clubs in Yorkshire with far better grounds than Ampthill, London Scottish, Nottingham etc which says it all but there won't be another Exeter any time soon.

Sport England have sent a note to pro and amateur football clubs to say they can apply for grants up to £5000 towards any damage so may be worth looking into for anyone affected.

1 league of 14 would have been the ideal solution as how do you keep players motivated who want to play most weeks. By all means have the split but play home and away and get the game time and bar revenue as how do these clubs get friendlies when most other teams are either playing or in the merit leagues.

In agreement with a lot of this apart from the last post as that is subjective but everyone is entitled to their opinion. Safety is paramount in both set piece scenarios and comes first in my view so someone's opinion on lack of knowledge is usually way off the mark when you speak to the referee and ask why. Don't forget just because someone is dominant in the scrum doesn't mean that they are legal. Do refs make mistakes, absolutely, do players try and cheat, of course they do. Some of the best tightheads I have come across always try and get an advantage over their opposition and referee. What would people prefer watch for cross the line offences which are dangerous or spot every throw or feed that was marginally not straight. Scrum halves realistically only have to have their left shoulder on the centre of the scrum as well so it isn't a big problem for me as long as their is an opportunity to compete. Lineouts are their to be contested so if someone doesn't then they don't deserve possession. My issue has always been the defending scrum going backwards faster than the French resistance trying to get a free kick or higher. It doesn't happen on their ball.
