Two interesting articles in the rugby paper today: 1 An article headed " Carnegie set for crisis talks with RFU boss Melville" .He wants reassurances that Carnegie will be in a position to take the field in time for next season It also says that there strong rumours that the Championship will be relegation free in 2020 and the Premiership will become 13 clubs 2 There is also a big article on page 19 regarding Peter Lucock and his future with Doncaster
Hi Mr Machin
Is there any chance you could share a screen grab or a link to the articles please?
Some very depressing postings on the Leeds unofficial forum.
Popped on to their forum after this post John and yes I have to agree - interesting to read the post by the DoR he puts a different perspective on a number of the topics raised by a few. Quite refreshing in his openness and honesty.
If Nigel Melville is visiting Carnegie today to seek assurances about the ability to field and fund a team next season is it likely we would have an announcement soon? If Carnegie is to go into administration and be relegated surely Richmond would need time to reconfigure if they were to stay up.
Im not convinced we averaged 3500 for half a season?
I remember the crowd being that big for the B & I cup final v Worcs and maybe the playoff home leg - both boosted by significant travelling support but i reckon we were doing 1800-2200 at home in them days?
Is there any scope to get the bulk of fixtures out of sync with Rovers and Racing days which must affect the commercial take if not the general attendance?
We seemed to fall on the same home match rota as Rovers last season?
I was reading RP this morning. Is it just me not understanding things but are Carnegie being treated differently to Welsh a few years ago? They may have achieved a successful CVA application but they are insolvent. They also have a £250,000 contribution to the RFU Academy system from their own funds. Recalling the Welsh affair, they didn’t seem to be a situation as bad as this and proposed a ‘reasonable’ solution that the RFU flatly refused. What’s different about Carnegie’s situation?

kenner: Just a Question if I may? Why after a season and on to the second can we not get an actual picture of Aaron Carpenter on the players site? Did not someone just take team photos?

Sir Spicious: I fear there are rumours that Aaron may, in fact, be a vampire and as such his image does not reflect in mirrors nor can it be captured in a photo. I should, however, warn you this may be fake news.

funches: How come there's only 3 games this weekend? Is it just scheduling or?

thomasmachin: It would appear that if we are to replace the departing players we had better be quick or all the available players will be signed by Ealing ,Coventry and Cornish Pirates!

barbelhunter: What a great re signing that is.

donnyknightsfan: that was absolutely dire today almost from start to finish apart from a spell in the 2nd half when we looked OK. players don't look motivated enough to me. they need a kick up the backside. the next two games v Bedford and Irish look a tough ask now.

rodders: A bit random this one but are any Knights fans travelling to the Jersey game on Friday 1st March flying from East Midlands on the 10.55 flight out. 2 of us are looking for a lift to East Midlands airport unexpectedly. Happy to share costs of travel

donnyknightsfan: after yesterday's showing a new attacking coach and structure is needed ASAP. our attack is really poor. why don't we ever look to create space?. you're not going to beat championship defences by just running straight at them.
