More crucial than ever to get promoted this year ! If Bristol come down this year with the money behind them.... they will go straight back up.

If this rule was in place this year we would be celebrating promotion in a few weeks. Instead we have to go through the torture of the last ever play off finals. Makes me mad actually.

Found this mentioned on the Yorkshire board. Interesting comment.

"It is a 3 year agreement. What will happen at the end of the 19/20 season, is that when 2 teams will be promoted, nobody will be relegated, and we get our 14 team Premiership?"



I'd rather be a Paddy then a Quin!!

C'mon the boys in Green!!

The 14 team Premiership is a myth that circulates on these message boards, and has done so for so long that some now accept it as true, or even somehow inevitable. When the 14 team Premiership does finally happen I will ride my unicorn over to the end of the rainbow to collect my crock of gold.

Here a link to the statement on the RFU website: [www.englandrugby.com] . It states that it's a 3-year thing, but makes no reference to what happens after 3 years.

Regarding the 14-team premiership, didn't the league have 14 teams until about 2000. At which point it was reduced to 12 because 14 was seen as too many, causing problems for player welfare?
