Aviva prem to scrap P+R?..

06 March 2015 - 11:22 AM

haven't seen this posted anywhere else.. Saw this on the running rugby website recently. Quite interesting to see in light of the RFL's decision P+R is the way to go and that licensing had failed.

Apologies for posting a large part of the article (login is required for runningrugby.com), so in the interests of those that aren't registered on the site..

 

"Aviva Premiership clubs are leading a radical proposal to expand the division and then scrap promotion and relegation in 2016/17 in what would be the biggest shake-up to the sport in England since it turned professional.

The Telegraph has reported that the proposal is to increase the top flight from 12 to 14 teams by a meritocratic process before ring-fencing the top flight and dispensing with promotion and relegation.

It is understood that the concept has the support of the majority of the Premiership clubs following a meeting of owners and shareholders last week.

The full support of the 14 clubs who own Premiership shares – which includesChampionship sides Bristol RugbyWorcester Warriors and Yorkshire Carnegie – would be required before the plan could be agreed as policy. It would then have to be put before the Rugby Football Union for approval.

It is thought that the plan’s supporters are keen for it to form a central plank of the negotiations with the RFU that are under way over the next long-term “heads of agreement” with the clubs over the release of England players.

The Premiership’s lucrative television deal with BT Sport is due to expire at the end of the 2016-17 season and there is a feeling that a new structure would enable ­Premiership Rugby to increase the value of its rights.

There is likely to be opposition to the plan from some Championship clubs, who would have the most to lose from such a proposal."


Rugby League Backchat

20 February 2015 - 07:28 PM

Not seen this mentioned anywhere else on here, but Back chat is returning to TV screens on Premiersports. Dave Woods hosting with Chrus Irvine, Danny Lockwood and Schoey taking over from Stevo in the "I'm gonna be controversial" role.. Can't recall exactly when it's gonna start but initially it's going to be monthly and cover SL, Championship and NRL..

Sounds good to me, even with Schoey!..
