Depressing article on Carnegie in the Times today - "Shameful tale of England's worst Club".

Total mismanagement, financial and otherwise.

So far they've lost all 6. For 97 Against 294. A solitary try bonus point.

Quotes from a couple of recent players......

"You’ve signed for a great club which used to have great people working in its rugby programme. I hope you’re prepared to listen to lie after lie from a board who truly are some of the worst people I’ve encountered.”

In response to a statement from the Chief Exec "We haven’t all just been let down, we have been entirely screwed over by the Yorkshire board. You mention that all nine players ‘supported’ the CVA. That is rubbish. Had we known Yorkshire needed 100 per cent support for the CVA, myself and many others would have voted no".

The most shameful part of the whole mess (IMO) is the blind eye turned to the whole mess by the RFU / RPA / Geoff Irvine.

Elsewhere in RFU - the Cornish Pirates are in the process of building a new stadium with the goal of moving up to Premiership. I hope they make it. :cool:

Would be a great addition. I would add in Newcastle, Pirates, 'Sarries' and one other, (probably in North somewhere) and ring fence with those 15 teams.
3 groups of 5 play 18 matches plus play offs.
