I’m sure Haliford will be able to inform all the reasons from Esher side,although it was Scottish that made the call and then informed Esher the change of mind, Esher had no say in it. Nothing was signed and it was a verbal agreement, bit like dropping out from buying a house after making an offer!! 

The RAG may well be a few pound better off but I would dread to think what the pitches are going to look  like if we have a semi wet winter.

I watched a game at Richmond (London Scots v Plymouth as I recall) a few years ago (was on train to watch Raiders at Henley when that was called off) The pitch that day was a total quagmire. Vividly remember one of the Plymouth wingers having a clean shirt 5 minutes from the end whilst virtually all the rest of the players were indistinguishable.

Those were the days - train trips, good beer in the pubs and allowed to watch rugby live.

To be fair, the Richmond pitches are very well maintained. I've only seen a few quagmires over the past 14 years, and they've been after really exceptional weather. I expect the powers that be at Richmond will be very careful about what they let themselves in for.

From my understanding -  the 1st xv will return ,the amateur club will not.
Historically the amateur club/sides that weren't the pro side trained on a monday & wednesday evening - i believe due to the fact Richmond trained on tuesday/thursday.
The amateur club will be based at another site.
Broncos Academy from memory train on Mondays & Wednesdays.

That’s about the size of it. Agreements were ready to be signed. It is frustrating but it may only be a delay of a year.
