So according to the rugby paper. Prem rugby could assume control of the championship to overhaul the top two tiers in English rugby. The idea is: - The championship clubs who have no interest in promotion will be encouraged to buddy up with a Prem club to allow them to be able to get 12 senior prem players on loan and by number of Academy players on loan. - The A League will be scrapped - buddy up clubs will not be eligible for promotion but those who are not in a buddy up setup are. - championship clubs will have to state intentions before the season starts and that non buddy teams are only allowed 4 loan players in total. - Believed playoffs will be stopped and a first past the post system implemented with Prem paying 1.7 million in compensation to champ clubs. - the idea is that smaller championship teams (such as Nottingham, Jersey and Rotherham) will not have to worry as much about player costs and instead focus money on infrastructure and development etc. - and it allows more ambitious teams such as Yorkshire, Doncaster and Pirates a route to the top still. - It also allows the Prem to get rid of the **** poor A league and sort out the issue of game time for younger players. - the system is also being looked at implemented with some Nat 1 teams like Cov and Plymouth etc. So I guess using Tigers and Nottingham as an example Tigers could in theory loan out our senior development players aswell as our 3rd/4th choice players not playing to Nottingham who in turn will not have to worry about paying those wages of players. Not sold on it but could work. Something needs to happen to stop champ going bankrupt and sorting out the **** poor A league.
