So Bill, when are you going to regionalise the top flight domestic scene then?
You look at the history of English rugby and its fair to say that 2003 was a freak moment when 18 or so exceptional players came together. The football club model doesn't work and now they are going to boycott the eurocup. Yeah right, PRL, your fired. You are incompetant and obstructive you are working against the national team and the standard if rugby you provide is poor. It's amazing that I have to say this but shock horror, there are more that 9 cities in England. The English nation loves rugby and we want a sucessfull national team we can celibrate. I'm plymouthian, I don't even relate that strongly to Exeter let alone Harlequins or Leicester and they can't beat the celts to save their lives anyway! The current system is elitist and parochial. Include more of us and get rid of the chaff.
London Welsh, what is that about? they've brought in sonny parker and gavin henson, hows that helping Stuart Lancaster? You got 9 noisy cities who don't represent England and the main reason they are anti-regional is because they don't want to lose their previledged rugby beneifits. They are the minority. And they selling the majority of us down the river becasue they think they are more important than the national team. They don't support England, they are about to walk away from europe. what are they doing to deserve to be at the top of the domestic game??? Nothing. So Bill, PLEASE!!!! Do the other 500,000 cities in England a favour and give us regionalism and a successful national team.
