If a phoenix club takes over there is a points deduction which may cause one relegation, but you keep the place.

The professional companies running Richmond and London Scottish teams merged with London Irish. So their amateur teams which had been in merit tables had to apply to join the pyramid. When London Welsh finally imploded, London Welsh Amateurs renamed themselves London Welsh and retained their position.

Any insolvency event triggers the points deduction, unless the debts are repaid or an agreement reached within 6 weeks. I think all the suppliers have to agree, not just the 75% needed for the CVA to pass.

There is a broad definition of what constitutes an insolvency event - not just administration. Appointing an insolvency practitioner to arrange a CVA would certainly count. But so does failure to pay players. So it depends on how lenient the RFU is feeling.

From today's statement RFU certainly sees the benefit of a strong club in Yorkshire. And the blazers remember playing Headingley but never played Doncaster.

But we know even if the CVA is agreed in the next few weeks, that would be the start of the problems.

Lets hope we can keep some form of club going.
