Throughout pro RU they have maintained P&R.

 

 

 

But with minimum standards, so not automatic.

 

Clubs wishing to play in the Premiership must fulfil a list of criteria set down by the Professional Game Board and agreed with the RFU Championship. This covers areas such as stadia, club administration and other key roles, community development programmes, ground tenure and ground moves, facilities, medical and safety, marketing, plans to increase attendances, adherence to the squad cap and playing and contractual commitments. The purpose of the minimum criteria is to set a standard for all clubs to operate by, which all will benefit from.

 

Promotion and relegation is however subject to the Minimum Standards Criteria being fulfilled by the club finishing top of the RFU Championship as outlined above.

I bet the RFU actually implement their minimum standards too yes?  Unlike the RFL.

Don't forget that Dr K has just had to fork out a grand in fines because Nigel Wood won't tolerate people expressing an opinion contrary to the corporate speil, especially if an f bomb is dropped into the mix. So I would imagine we won't be hearing/reading anymore interesting stuff from Dr K. He's certainly been very quiet on Twitter since his fine.

What a shame. I think he's been great news for rugby league.


He has been great news, the best in a while. He is however a "self made man" and has never had to answer to anyone.

He now has collective responsibility to contend with. If you are part of the management of an organisation and the vote goes against you, you swallow hard and shut up.

That would apply from a tiny company to the cabinet.

It's a lesson he needs to learn quickly.
