It sounds that we will have a university side playing in National 1, with a few players from other clubs.
I am sorry to say it but with potentially serious economic recession we are in and no real significant sponsor coming forward, Phil been paid a nominal fee for mentoring the club the future does do not look very good.
All I have seen over the last 18 months is a club slowly wither away with the financial burden spread across as many people as possible to soften the blow and keep Hetherington & Co in their jobs. It ironic all the management talk about is some of the great players that club has produced but they never stay long. Steve Thompson said that the club corporately does not have a deep routed ambition to succeed. I believe the "fat lady has sang" for professional rugby union in the city of Leeds.

All very sad really, but it is nothing compared to what people are suffering at the moment.
