Back to Leeds, shall we?

I see John Newcombe reports that if Leeds go belly up before 31 July, then Richmond would be reinstated. After that, we play an 11 club championship.

What's happening at Leeds now?

Well it seems like a large number have signed for Roth. Not sure where the brass is coming from.

If anyone does know what's going on they certainly aren't saying so in public.  The 2018 accounts are still unfiled and there has been no official notification of any form of insolvency.  Apart from that, the silence is deafening! 
That's easy for you to say.

Fingers are still firmly crossed. I know that feathers were ruffled when Leeds changed their name, but we really do not want another 'big' club with great fans going to the wall.

As YC are currently unable to sign players, and all un-contracted players have left I cannot see how it is possible for YC to be able to field a team that would be remotely competitive.

So Richmond have to wait until end of July to see if they are re instated into the Championship. If they are they will have no time to recruit . What about Nat 1 will they play with a 15 team league or will another team be asked to move back which would probably be a more difficult problem for them to recruit especially if they have lost players by being relegated . If Leeds do not have a team now they will not get one who will come to them with all the uncertainty as to whether Leeds will be able to pay them.

There is a reasonable argument that OE be promoted as Richmond have divested themselves of some players and OEs have recruited for promotion - perhaps a play off to decide!!

Still leaves National 1 clubs a fixture short and a 6% cut in gate income and bar profit which may be only £5,000 but that comes straight off the bottom line. I suppose it also depends on how players are paid - salary/retainer or match fee - or a mix of both. 

Whatever happens it will be one less match to watch - I'll have to go and watch the 2nd/3rd XV!!

NCA have confirmed the RFU Regs. If by 31/7 YC cannot fulfil their fixtures then Richmond will replace them and Nat 1 will play with 15 teams.

Perhaps the Yorkshire supporters may need to dust off their boots!  Get some DR's in and play their 6 star players they have left and see what happens to not mess everyone else up.

It might not be an offer, it might be a requirement.

This all smacks of the Championship looking after themselves. In a nutshell a Championship club goes mountain pepper up and those in National One take the hit in being a home fixture short. And yes, I know it is in accordance with the regs...
