Genge throws in the towel...

No great surprise.

Gobby for a bit and got the headlines, but v. lukewarm support from the players.

They probably know him well enough...

Sounds like an ignorant thug to me. Heís also very entitled and arrogant with no substance to back it up. Greg Bateman isnít the sharpest tool in the box either.

Seemed a fairly well intentioned exercise. Listening to the House of Rugby podcast with him on this week, it's pretty clear he massively underestimated the complexity of the undertaking. Turns out you need a bit more than an idea and a mate who can use PowerPoint to set up a functioning union.

Overall though it's a pretty interesting time with the PRL, RFU, Clubs and RPA all seemingly on different pages. Wonder where we'll be when the dust settles

Couldnít agree more, it is incredibly complex. I do think a consistent policy would have helped hugely and some clubs and players will get a pretty tough/unfair outcome. So it needs some big thinkers who donít shoot from the hip and have a conflict of interest.
