Sting in the tail?

Anyone heard more about this, which was posted within the main TRC forum under a Crusader's topic?
Hope the request gets the short negative if the RFL is going to maintain any credibility and let progress be determined by achievement.

"South Wales Scorpions will bid for a place in the Championship next season should the Crusaders opt not to compete.
Scorpions and Wales RL officials are set to speak to Red Hall representatives this week to discuss the club's possible promotion , despite their position near the bottom of the division.
The move would set the Neath side up for a possible Super League licence application for 2015.
The Scorpions are otherwise unaffected by the Crusaders withdrawal from the Super League, according to chairmain Phil Davies.
The Port Talbot based businessman said he was "devastated" by Tuesday's licence announcement.
But, he said, " South Wales Scorpions will continue as normal. We are a totally independent organisation from the Crusaders, we will continue to build from our base in Neath". "
There is an even longer article about this subject on Page 2 of the same newspaper with quotes from Mark Rowley, the Wales Rugby League Chairman, where it says, "The Neath based side hope to be promoted in the wake of the RFL's ongoing Championship Review, which should be concluded in the near future. With the Crusaders unlikely to continue in rugby leagues second tier, the promotion of Scorpions would be appealing to Red Hall chiefs and would provide a much needed boost to the game in Wales. " If the Crusaders are not in the Championship next year then the Scorpions want to be there in their place" said Rowley. "And hopefully in 3 years time, if things are done the right way, then the Scorpions could apply for entry to Super League".

"It is impossible not to feel a twinge of sympathy for Workington Town, the fall guys this season for the Super League's determination to retain it's European dimesion, in the shape of Paris. While the French have had every assistance to survive, the importance of having a flagship in a heartland area like West Cumbria has been conveniently forgotten." - Dave hadfield - Independent 25th Augsut 1996.
