I think we can survive a year in the championship again, but it will take some very good man management and a slice of good fortune.
1. Trim the squad and lose the big earners, Id look to get about 1.5 million off the wage bill. Were already losing franks and Lewington, Id release Marshall and Nalaga if it was possible. Both a waste in that league. There are others who would probably be able to find new clubs, Reid and the prop that has yet to feature. Thats probably about 200k. Definitely lose McLean and Hearn, the two most pedestrian centres to wear the shirt.
2. Ensure contracts are signed before we go down so we secure our core of youth. This is where Nic will earn his cash, he managed these guys basically the entire way to this level, he needs to convince them to stay. Those guys will flourish in the championship I think. Theyve already played in that league (most of them) and the others have enough experience of Euro and LV rugby to be comfortable at that level.
3. Identify what the best 22 are and utilise what they have. We have very good backs coming through, we just need a backs coach to make it happen. Weve seen enough evidence to see that Hodgson is just incapable of doing a job for us.
4. Some of the older guys like Van De Merwe would be great to steer us through another year of relegation, just like robson was.
5. Its not as long a slog in the championship now with the automatic promotion, this would ideally make recruitment easier if we were to comeback up again.

Wed need to buck the trend of poorly managing most of the situations we find ourselves in but it can have a positive outcome.
