This season is a rarity. In previous seasons any team outside the cartel of 13, who has been promoted has been relegated very early in the season, leaving no relegation battle, and in the case of Rotherham, Yorkshire, have got into financial difficulties, while London Welsh went into administration.Very insightful thoughts, my friend, thanks for that!
I’m actually loving the relegation battle, but that may be its newness to me... in fact, knowing Bristol just came up, if they’d gone right back down, I’d likely have a very different taste in my mouth about it, but it truly makes these last few weeks more exciting...
The chase for the Holy Grail is causing financial strife that is not good for the players or the clubs themselves.
Maybe CVC, although their track record is not good, will create financial stability in order to help grow the professional game.
