As a Newbury fan, yes we miss the big games and taking the odd big scalp - Coventry and Plymouth last season, Northampton nearly the season before (both home and away), but in reality getting thumped by Leeds by 80 odd points is no fun. In reality we are now playing clubs of  similar size with similar facilities and expectations. The competitive nature of this league reflects that. Yes the target is promotion - has to be, but there are other factors.
The problem of this league is the travelling relative to crowd size and therefore the revenue in return. How can it ever be effective? Redruth to Tynedale for 400 people?? At least playing the bigger clubs bring a few more spectators. Would we all have particularly smaller crowds if we were playing the next division down?

What's your issue with esher? From my observation esher are playing expansive rugby with a squad of players who ENJOY playing for the club, whether dual registrated or sololy registrated for esher. People seem to take issue with esher for various reasons, yet they are quietly going about their business of getting back to league they belong to be in, after graciously excepting the rfu's reshuffle. Is it going to be tight this season? Yes. But there are some clubs currently who have great ambitions but lack the humility of those who have been there and learnt the lessons! Bring on 2010 lets see who's got the staying power!
