You could argue reasonably that Coventry, with the business nous that Jon Sharp brings, is mirroring the Exeter formula as well then. The installation of the artificial playing surface means that the club is now able to accommodate 7 day use and to make use of the revenue from that use, but also with the other associated incomes around refreshments and conferencing.

A former player I bumped into at the weekend suggested to me that Coventry are trying to get to the premiership at any cost. I don't believe that to be the case. I think that if, or when, we get there, it will be with a sound business model and not pie in the sky thinking.

I'm not sure that Coventry had a particular economic advantage over other English clubs to thank for their success. For me, what differentiated Cov from most English clubs back then was that rugby wasn't just a middle-class sport and had a broader appeal and involvement.

With the total silence for nearly 3 weeks at Leeds, the supporters have seemingly given up..looking at their supporters site. With their first game at Notts two weeks on Friday, will a miracle have occured, or will supporters across the country be out of pocket. Clubs who are due to play them In the cup could miss out on two lots of revenue. Let's hope the self imposed news blackout, will bring forth a full squad and preseason games behind closed doors. Otherwise the RFU needs to look at its self and the way it deals with these situations again...
