Has anyone completed the Adult Male Future Competitions Survey which was sent out this afternoon?
Detailed introduction and stats.

https://t.co/k9s4SSKbro?amp=1

I don't think you have to be invited to complete the survey. The RFU seem hell bent on reducing the leagues to 12 as there are no options for 14.

To 10 according to the survey.

I put zero in response to every option as well

Pretty much the worst survey they could have sent out.

As someone who has been supportive of reducing the number of games, I can't support anything that survey suggests.

Could it just be negotiation?

We have 14,they want 12,so propose 10 and settle on 12?

How come there are still 16 clubs in the Nat leagues?

We could do with having the committee tasked with evaluating this named...we need to know exactly who it is who thinks they have a higher level of knowledge.

All the zero's from me too.

Their arguments are the stuff of nonsense. It's like they never listened to any of the previous fact finding meetings.

This seems a classic case of
"when we want your opinion, we'll give it to you".

Haven't I seen a list somewhere? I'm sure there was one. I will have a look

That can’t be the right committee? How many of them have experience of running a rugby club at levels 5,6 and 7, for instance.
