Scottish and Welsh have both investigated it in the past. Just over two years ago, our (LW) chairman told us that talks were progressing: the RFU were happy with it, the SRU were supportive, the IRFU were 'cautiously supportive' and Premier Rugby were dead against it.

So it could happen, but if you think you've got problems with cashflow in the Premiership you seriously need to consider what happens when you lose the millions from Premier Rugby and aren't treated as a fully-funded franchise of the IRFU.
