Re: Time to relegate relegation?

The game has moved on a lot since those teams were relegated, it must be about 10 years since Quins played at Bedford. The gap has widened since then, Premiership players are trained to a fitness & intensity level that could only be dreamed of back then. It is now very difficult for Championship players to step up to that level in just a few months, and it doesn't do the relegated squad any good at all to have that level of competition removed from them for a whole season. Looking to the next ten years, that gap is only going to widen further unless something changes.
