Looks like a good idea to me, always bad when teams get lost/pushed out but their league has been on the brink of collapse for years.

First training session for my under 9's tomorrow. Be interesting to see how the small quick kids that scored loads in tag rugby will get on with someone lamping them.

Exmouth 40 - Lydney 36.

We lost to a converted try in added time.

Given we had several debutants, including the captain, thatís not a bad result

After losing in injury time last week, we (the Mighty Lyd) won in injury time against Ivybridge this week.

Down 3-22 at Half Time (and playing shit), we got it back to 22-22, slipped behind again 22-32 before scoring two tries in the last couple of minutes to win it 34-32 with a conversion from the touchline

So the owner of the club that was Wasps is also now the owner of the club that was Worcester

The two pairs of chancers that have owned Worcester over last 3 years are clowns of the highest orderÖthe administrators donít seem to have covered in glory either.

Will Worcester or Wasps or Worcester Wasps ever see the last the of day?

With 3 Prem clubs gone you wonder if any others will follow

Newcastle are the only other side that are on thin ice but I think they'll be fine.

I fully expect some phoenix club to emerge from Worcester/Wasps and find their way up the leagues pretty quickly.

I never considered the impact at lower levels but Jersey were always a tough one with a very small ground and some hefty travel costs, it's always felt like a club that needed a lot of investment to stay alive.

I had no idea that Jersey's finances had been so ropey for years.

I assumed that they had some mega-rich benefactor.

The RFU slashing the funding for the Championship looks like it was the beginning of the end for it as a professional league

Yep, same here, I don't know how they've kept going for so long without that.

Looks like Jersey had been receiving funding from the island's government.
