I'm confident that any recommendations they make will be exactly what the RFU have instructed them to make.

I did kind of gloss over the growth issue so I agree that some clubs can continue to grow. It is noticeable however that clubs in the championship have failed spectacularly to increase their attendance at league games. Especially those without a catchment area of any size. Coventry and Warwickshire have populations of 347000 and 600,000 so plenty to tap into, even Jersey who are relatively well off has only a population of under 100000 so their gates rarely exceed 2000, but with their financial clout are doing OK. But Hartbury college ? Should this club be where they are wholly sustained by external finance ? Rugby clubs need to be vetted by the RFU more rigorously, second tier rugby should not be played with fans stood behind a rope in a muddy field. There hasto be ground suitability checks made, surely ?

Jersey? Really? They have a financial crisis on their hands having been mismanaged in recent years and the true financial situation covered up. They could be the next club to implode.

Jersey have found the funding to buy back the facilities they sold off last year, as they said they would at the time, and within the timescale they said then.
