Division boundaries  drawn up in the 19th Centruy when people traveled by train might not fit with the pattern of clubs on the ground and the transport options open to them today.

Similarly leagues based on County boundaries drawn up by the Anglo-Saxons might not be the best arrangement. For example, it might make sense to have a Manchester league rather than splitting it clubs between Lancashire and Cheshire.

It might make sense to look at where the clubs are now and then build league structures based on that. And to do that, you need to do it centrally.

or course I do nto expect the RFU to spend more than five minutes on this and fully expect them to come up with proposals that arein every way worse than what we have now -that would let them spend the rest of the day in the bar drinking the gin.
