Allan Robson has joined us as new non-executive chairman, was previously non-executive chairman at Saints. Sounds promising and I hope he can help lay down a strong future for this club.

But my question is where all this money coming from for new members on the board and new coaching staff? I am happy they are joining and hope they can help establish us as a more permanent team in the premiership rather than being in relegation scraps. However surely this money would be better spent on players on the pitch, we have a great academy but we need to pair our home grown talent with some "relatively" big names that can add some magic in crucial moments of the game. If we want to play in the big league we have to pay the big bucks unfortunately, personally I would rather rugby not become like football but being realistic we need to spend on players if we are serious about the premiership.

It's an unpaid position isn't it?

It’s a very shrewd appointment as he will have some great insight and help us in negotiating out of the guillotine game debacle.

Maybe we have more money than people think, maybe we are streamliming recruitment, maybe it's an unpaid position

I agree with that anything to stop these rumoured guillotine games is good for English rugby not just us. The guillotine games is very much a head in the sand resolution to the issue of relegation IMO.
