Re: Premiership Shares

The proposal that was widely circulated was for 2 divisions both controlled by the Premiership. So any existing Premiership clubs who end up in the second tier would still be in the Premiership! If you see what I mean. It isn't like they are being cast out completely. That's why I assume that some sort of equitable funding would have to be in place otherwise you can't see why, for example, Bristol, Leeds, Worcester, Sale or Irish would vote for it. Or any of the clubs in Division 1 who thought they might be likely to end up in the bottom 2 of a 10 team League 1. Essentially you end up with a majority against the idea - unless the funding is sorted.
