The employment issue (for Champ players and coaches) began to raise its ugly head almost immediately.
On BBC local radio last night, Cov Chairman Jon Sharp said that his DoR had received over 100 enquiries from potentially unemployed/heavily downgraded players and coaches in just 24 hours...
Make of that what you will.
He also said of the RFU (in a roundabout fashion) "f**k 'em; we're staying fully-pro, and we ain't going anywhere".

It could all get very interesting.

(His hour-long interview is still available on BBC Coventry & Warwickshire 'Listen Again'' should anyone be interested).
