Quite shocking reading really, it shows how much we owe to Semore.

Quins and Worcester are the scariest of the lot though.

A very good read
The RFU increase the salary cap despite these figures, when clubs all make a loss the RFU should be encouraging clubs to break even not increase their spending

I actually think that these figures demonstrate that really professional rugby is only borderline feasible. Sadly the turnovers in a lot of cases are incredibly low considering this is the top table of the sport in this country.
