Zero funding from the RFU though.

Looks like there'll be zero funding in a year or two anyway.

It might be a good idea for the Reds to brush up on their French

I suspect they wouold be welcomed with open arms - and the whole island asked if it wants to follow.

As I did, apoligises.
With the news funding will be cut now by £135,000 and that only in 2021/2022 will funding levels go to £288,000. And the news 7 of the current clubs will remain full-time, will it not just be business as usual for most clubs?, albeit squads may be smaller and some may be paid abit less. This may prove beneficial for the champ clubs in my eyes, as I will force some to look at young up and coming players and give them chance, as they won't be able to afford various international imports, which can occasionally be seen by some clubs at the moment.

Looks like Scottish are the first club to announce serious change at this point, with them stating that without any other changes in regards to funding the club will transfer to a part-time model for the 2020/2021 season.
