According to media reports YC have pulled out of this weekends friendly away to Gloucester as they cannot raise a side. On their message board some fans think that a lack of front row forwards is the reason.

A number of their supporters that post on Rolling Maul are slightly concerned (to say the least) about their inability to play a pre-season friendly of any description and worry about the link between this and big budget cuts brought on by Carnegie pulling out financial backing.

Hope this isn't a harbinger of things disastrous ahead ala London Welsh. I'm due to be in Leeds when we play them and had hoped to be there!!!

Seems like more and more clubs are struggling in this league and more are going to go part time. This will mean, Unless you are lucky enough to have someone putting in a lot of money it will be very difficult to make it work. London clubs will dominate as they can offer players part time contracts and decent jobs outside rugby. Our future rests on the stadium. There seems to be a solid business plan and maybe we can make it a viable business in the Exeter model.
