Big shame for a club who fights above its weight and does a valuable development job for Quins youngsters. Hope they bounce back.

big shame, but I don't think they would have survived next season in the new championship league with it being fully pro.
Still a big shame.

The point was that Esher were surviving quite comfortably until the RFU changed the competition regulations halfway through the season and decided to relegate five and not two clubs leaving Esher, and others in the bottom half of the table, no chance to adjust their playing resources.

Above all else rugby is sport and the RFU should hang their heads in shame at the despicable way they have treated certain clubs this season.

They proudly boast that they "support participants and fans from the grassroots to the national team" but this is nothing more than a pack of lies.

This season has seen the RFU exposed for what they are - a governing body that is quite willing to ditch their responsibilities in order to get their snouts in the corporate trough.
