Does the RFU believe that Premiership Academies are better at developing young talent than the clubs in the Championship? How many serious matches are those players allowed at Prem level, compared with the chance to play week in, week out in the 2nd tier?

Sweeney spoke about NL1 clubs giving young players chances. Wouldn't he wish those players to be in a higher league instead, i.e. the Championship?

There's a welfare issue: Premiership players whose contracts are terminated often play on to good effect in the Championship, as we know at Cov. What'll happen to those guys when Champ clubs can't afford their wages?

It's accepted that the parachute payment for the relegated Prem club to dominate the Championship is an advantage. Well, it's a huge one!

It made me laugh when Sweeney said he'd like Championship clubs to pay players more -- so we're cutting their funding by 40%!

The RFU are not only shafting every club and player below the Premiership they are screwing Premiership players who want to drop down a league (one is Tom Wood) who now could be without a club

Some brilliant articles in the Rugby Paper today, all agreeing that Sweeney and co have made a huge blunder. Understand that there is a planned demonstration at Twikenham in support of the Championship Clubs and removal of the present RFU board.
