Minimum stadium size was dropped a couple of years ago []

Thanks for the correction Sarriebone. Last QF I was at was Saints a few years ago and all I remember was we didn't need the expanded capacity as we'd played them like 6 times that season already and everyone was thoroughly bored of the fixture. I hadn't appreciated that it had changed and responded to a report in a paper saying "despite Sandy Park capacity being 13500 or something they would be allowed to hold the QF there with no expansion.

Exeforver and EXDJ my apologies, see above reply to Sarriebone. Having railed against people quoting incorrect newspaper articles I have done the same thing myself.

You're welcome Blackheath Sarrie. There's so much innuendo and rumour circulating at present that a simple misunderstanding is not surprising.

FWIW one of the advantages of being the only remaining members' club is that, had it been us breaking the cap, I do believe that the membership would have rallied round and demanded the resignations of the entire board but, like you I would continue to support the club that I have supported for the last 50 years. Clubs are bigger than the current first XV or board of directors and I hope that you get things sorted out and are able to work your way back on an honest footing.

That said I am disappointed beyond measure that Wray (and others???) put winning above all else and have dragged rugby's reputation through the mud.
