The BOD have slowly and pragmatically built the squad and going into this season we all expected to take another step up the table. Through a couple of mistakes and a big chunk of bad luck that hasn't been the case and we are still scrambling to stay up.
Look at Donny finished about 4th last season and haven't won a game, Haven by some miracle have managed to cobble a squad and coach together after a car crash start to the season helped along by one of the directors putting his hand in his pocket. They will rely massively on not getting a lot of injuries in the super 8's.
Sorry but taking a step backwards and accepting relegation is ludicrous, the money coming in goes down along with the quality of the squad, but some costs will increase. If we can stay up and keep blooding an amateur or two a season then long term it can be built on and sustained.
What if we got relegated and spent a small fortune tempting amateurs to turn pro and still weren't competitive, is that sustainable?
