No real urgency to improve squads now that PRL have scrapped relegation, supposedly just for this season.
Hopefully they’ll stick to that. Be farcical to carry on like that beyond one season.

BT Sport are far from happy as they only recently signed up to a new £110m three-year deal until 2024. What is upsetting BT bosses is the concern that the relegation moratorium could be extended to four years thereby reducing jeopardy levels in the competition. An industry insider told "The Rugby Paper." "BT Sport don't like this at all as they love the relegation narrative and unless that is built into subsequent seasons, I'm sure they will be seriously considering their future position."

First of all you must realise that Premiership Rugby Limited is close-knit organisation who had promotion / relegation foisted upon them by the RFU. Being a full member of this saintly little club requires a club to own the necessary shares.

When The Chiefs CEO Tony Rowe contacted PRL asking how much money the club would get on being promoted he was told "I'm sorry we cant tell you that." Pressing further, Rowe was told "you'll get 25 B shares and 5 A shares. If you want your P shares you have to be in the Premiership two years and buy them off the club that already has them. "Okay, how much will it cost us?" "Sorry we can't tell you precisely how much."

Driving home, Rowe decided to phone some Premiership chairmen who told him the Chiefs would get something Like £800,000 which was less than half what the established clubs were getting. On top of that, the ground would be checked to see that it met the specifications required. It mattered not one jot that Bath RFC ground is an utter, utter disgrace.

As For Salarycens, they've still got their P shares and so they're a premiership club even if they're in the league below.

oh i know its a exclusive club which is highlighted by your report on how they wanted to screw chiefs over.
The ground situation amazes me as yes bath's ground is awful or was i havent been there for a few years tbf but as crazy as it sounds Albion' ground despite never being finished fully can still pass the test cause as it can hold 10000. Of course albion will never reach the premiership, championship absolutely although they need to get a move on with the plan to get back there as they are in danger of getting stale.



who is watching the wales/england game then?

well that was feckin mood alternationg after the argyle result lol

two iffy tries but in truth i think england were going to go on and loose it as discipline was gone in that team. I still hope we get tanked by france and ireland next so the RFU bin Jones cause they wont do it if we win those games.

Getting penalised for the same thing time and again. Shocking indiscipline and I don't buy Jones excuse players were playing too hard, fook off. The ref was shocking and he should have his and the TMO's decision making scrutinised. First try he told Farrell to take a break then told the welsh to play why the fook didn't he tell Farrell no I'm about to blow play on? Second try since when has it mattered that a ball hits your leg after you have lost control of it and fumbled it along for three or four yards? Absolute twattery of the highest order. I do agree though that we don't deserve to win playing like that.

the ref was shocking and he will get the blame for this defeat of course from the media. I truly cant understand with the talented crop of players at Eddie's disposal and he either ignores the inform ones for ones who havent played in a year or he has them playing baffling rugby with ill discipline.
