Freddy, you may like to see Leeds Carnegie operate with its own ground but such a move would bring more, not less expenditure. The overheads of a single club outfit would be significantly higher and at HC we get all year round utilisation of a facility and staff availability, where there is crossover, cutting those potentially crippling costs. I feel that we need to try a deeper involvement in the joint operation than is currently apparent and realise that even the Rhinos are not having it all their own way at the moment, as Leeds Rugby have recently closed the city centre shop. I would venture to say that not much of that business was indebted to Leeds Carnegie for its sales figures.
