Re: The RFU Championship next year!

In my most simple explanation, I would do the following:
1. Ring fence the Prem with the addition of five teams.
2. It would be a big league but the burden would be eased by the removal of the LV cup.
3. More game time means more squad rotation and the inclusion of the fringe players in more match day squads, especially during the international games
4. The youngest of the fringe players can go to the lower division teams as they do now.
5. A larger professional league would enhance the international squad quality with more players getting better and more competitive game time. There are plenty players in the championship that would get on fine in the Prem.
6. The RFU increase club payments, with extra support for the new teams in the Prem. RFU profits would be split equally to allow growth in the smaller teams.
7. Rfu provide long term loans to clubs for ground development. In the long term it will allow the smaller clubs to generate their own income

I'm sure I'm wrong on certain things but the RFU seem to be complicating this more than it needs
