. (The Premiership clubs) can send our young players off knowing they will still be training at a decent level and getting game time. .
I still think PRL should set their sights into the next 20 years, buy up the championship and develop a much stronger league structure

My understanding is that Premiership Rugby Limited (aka CVC) want to develop the A league at the expense of the Championship.

If they are successful at that there will be no need to send players to the Championship as they with get their training "at a decent level" under the watchful eye of their contracted clubs.

Of course this notion ignores all the related history the clubs in the lower leagues have accumulated over the past 100 years.

Out of curiosity, what sort of attendance do we get for 'A' league games at the Saracens Copthall Stadium?
