Is that exactly what he says or just the spin you would like to put on it?
He talks about poorly thought through expansion clubs and to be honest just because they are expansion clubs doesn't mean that they weren't poorly thought out.
A failing expansion club such as Quins probably does the image of our game more harm than it does good. It certainly does more than anything else to give the impression that RL is simply a northern game as it struggles so badly in the south.
Face it, if Quins were a northern RU club we would be laughing at them, claiming it proves that the north doesn't want RU.
