I picked those 5 in the championship but it could be a perm of 7 or 8 from there.

I donít think relegation/promotion is a sensible, sustainable financial option for rugby union. And as for enough games, the attendances arenít great anyway so maybe a focus on more local matches might improve attendances.

If you look at player welfare, I canít see how the current model is sustainable from that perspective either.

Also, all the current clubs in the prem only really survive from RFU contributions and major backers, not sure the gate receipts make that much impact
