It has been reported in this weeks Rugby Paper that plans to increase the Championship to 14 teams has stalled after the clubs failed to reach a consensus according to the RFU's Nigel Melville.The B&I cup is in its last season after it was agreed to scrap it because it has failed to prove popular with the clubs. A further meeting is due to be held this month to discuss a possible league expansion for the 2019-20 season and a new cup format involving Championship clubs for next season.

The new cup format should be that Championship clubs be included in the Anglo Welsh cup. It would create much more interest to get Welsh Regional teams and Premiership clubs (albeit second string sides) to Championship grounds.
